Title: Is it possible to create a closed/hidden board for my forum?
Post by: Frozen on November 25, 2012, 10:11:50 pm
I'd like to have a hidden board on my forum to which I can invite members as I choose. Is this possible and if so how?

you can set it so some people cant access the board but ud prolly have to make a custom usergroup so u can set it so only the people in that usergroup can see it

Thanks! I think I'm almost there. Now I just need to find out how to add members to a "hidden" usergroup?

You'd need to create the hidden membergroup via Admin CP > Membergroups

Then set the board to allow only "hidden" to see it by going to Admin CP > Boards

And then go to the user's profile that you'd like to add to the group, click "Account Related Settings" and change their primary membergroup to "Hidden"

Go through and make sure the rest of the boards you already have created allow "Hidden" to have access also.
