  • How do I 'hide' the board for upgrades?

    Hello,

    we got hacked recemtly and I want to hide the board from the public so we can make the proper upgrades to it. I understand there is a way to go in the admin panel and do this? If anybody can shed some light on this for me I would appreciate it.

    we are wanting to 'hide' it as each time the board has been restored by our hosting company the hacker does his thing again.

    Thanks,

    Michael

    You can either close your board or possibly make redirect to a temporary page.

      Put .htaccess in the directory where the forum runs. So staff can bypass the block, but users are temporary moved away from the site. Add allow IP of the staff so they can see the forum, and set everybody to redirect to siteclosed.html
