    How do I let users know they need to be logged in

    I want to set it up so that users can see the Category and Forum Titles but not see any threads unless they are logged in.

    I only want this for some forums. I have it set up like that now, but is there a way to display a message on the forums that require you to be logged in?

    Do I have to just put it in the Forum Description?

    You can see my forum at www.norcalmotcross.com/forum

    Set this for the private forums:

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Permissions -> [Edit] -> Can View Forum = No

    ...and this:

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Manager -> Edit Forum -> Show Private Forum = Yes

    Now those forums will be listed but inaccessible when clicked.

    There are several ways to notify users that those forums are private. The forum description is probably the easiest. Or you can put those forums in a category called "Private" or something else indicative.

          My mistake... that is only in 3.6. I forgot I was in the 3.5 forum.

          See this thread. Method 1 is similar to what I posted. This was posted for 3.0.x. It is the same in 3.5.x except that the Hide Private Forums permission was inverted to Show Private Forums.
