So non-permitted users will see the threat title and content of the first post but nothing else?
Let me explain what I am trying to do. We have a coaches area where only coaches are allowed to post and respond. The issue is that because it is hidden and we have so many users that many do not know it exists and because some of the people on the forum are anonymous I don't know who the coaches really are. To encourage them to ask about the ability to post in that area I want everyone to be able to see the forum exists but NOT have access to any of the content because it can be sensitive to athletes.
