Firstly, what a great feature! How many hours have we lost on double checking such permissions on vB! Back to my question, I have created a mod category, and set it as private. I have also given admins and mods permission to view it. Now will all forums in this category automatically be private too? (Or do I have to manually set them as private too?) So I'm safe to assume that if they can't see the category (which is private) they can't see any of the forums in it as well unless they have either been granted specific permissions, or have permissions via the parent category? I think this is the case but just want to double check.
