  • How to: Private Forums?

    I am trying to create a "private forum", that unregistered guests can see - but are encouraged to "register' to get full access.

    I created the forum , set permssions - but unregistered can't see it there at all. Then i set permissions so they can see the forum, but not the posts at all. (just looks like a blank forum)

    How do others set these up, so users see a message to "register" when viewing... Right now, it just looks like a blank forum - no one would register becuase it looks like nohting is in there at all?

    Any others experiences?

    Any ideas? Apologize of this is a stupid question, or not in the right forum.

      Put a message in the forum description that they have to register in order to view the contents of that forum.
