XF 1.2 Can I hide all forums for maintenance?

    when I switch to maintenance mode and deactivate the forums users can still see all threads.

    However, before going live with my new community I would like to have two weeks beta testing with some people. During this beta test only registrated users should be able to read posts.

    Is this possible with xf?

    Disabling the forum blocks it to everyone except administrators.

    You will need to put some form of .htaccess protection in place.
