  • Private Board?

    I am trying to setup a completely private vBulletin board but I need some advice to reach my desired conditions:-
    • I have set forums as visible only to registered users and that is fine, but when my forum index page is reached anyone can see the "Users Online", Statistics etc and can browse the "Members" list - I don't want this, what must I do?
    • I don't want search engines to spider the forum at all, is there a 'blanket' switch-off?
    Any other points that members could advise to ensure a private vBulletin Board would be much appreciated.

    Setting the "Can View Forum" permission to No for the Unregistered / Not Logged In usergroup under Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager will satisfy both issues.
