    Is there a way for the Admin to see the board index and post etc. whilst the board is inactive to guests and regular users?

    Thank you
    Ryan

    Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Board Active -> Board is Active

    No, like I'm the Admin and I get this message "Sorry, we're currently unavailable. Please check back later." when the board is inactive. I don't want people to access it, but I want to see it all still. Is there a way to do that?

    So, so, so, so, so sorry. I wasn't logged in on the forum index, but I was logged in on the Admin Panel. I really do apologise!

    Admins can still view the forum after they login.

    Or you can put the entire forum behind a directory login:

    Many hosting control panels (e.g. CPanel and Plesk) have online tools to setup directory logins.
