despite all the settings i have tried and reading through all the manual pages about user/node/group permissions, i can't set up the admin/mod node so that it can be seen in the main forum list, but when you click on it you cannot see the list of threads in that node. no matter what i do, i can only set it up so that i can see the node, and when i click on it i can also see the thread list (using the test permissions option as a registered user). this is NOT what i want, since i don't want regular users to be able to see what threads are in the admin/mod section, just that the node does, in fact exist.
just super frustrated and confused. can anyone help me with this? thanks
