  • Pre-sales question about whats viewable?

    Quick question,

    What I am looking for is a way to run a forum on my site that is only accessible by members, but I don't want non-members to even be able to see it.

    Most forum software lets non-members see the forum page and then authenticate them, is there a method that I can use a form on my site to prompt for user name and password that will do pass through to the forum and log them in? All other users would never get past this login page that has nothing else but Username, password, Forgot my password?

    Yes, through the permission system, you can specify who can and can't see the forum.

    They register, and then you can choose email-validation registration (to activate the account) so they can view the site.

      You can completely lock down vBulletin so that nothing is seen except a big fat "You must register" page.

        As others have stated, vBulletin is customizable enough to fit your specific needs in this instance.
