    I must be looking right past it, but is there a switch to switch the forum closed for all but the admin? (so the admin can still browse the whole forums normally but everyone else gets the closed/maintenance message)?

    This should work : ACP => Options => Board Active => Unmark "board is active" => Save

    Not sure if mods have permissions to view the board if you switch the board off, but I think only admins have permissions to view, ;)

    ACP -> Options -> Board Active

    Edit: M@rc was faster xD

    I swear I tried that before posting. I just updated the domain moving from a test install to the real domain, so I must have lost my login for a moment. Sorry for the pointless thread, and thanks for confirming that it works perfectly. Tried it again, and it does now. Thanks.

    Sorry again for the scattered question.

    I haven't had this much fun though since the VB2 days so I'm possibly trying to go too fast after such a busy summer wanting to start working with xenForo.

    Nah, I had many moments like these with silly questions at first ^^ So don't be sorry :D
