    Hello, I'd like to create a forum that's visible only for the users that make a specific request to see it. no one will be able to see it but the members that have asked the admin to see it and participate in the threads.

    What is the best way to do it? Any suggestion?

    Node permissions > Set private node.

    Make a usergroup with specific permissions to view the node.

    People who request to see the forum, add them to that usergroup (or as a secondary)

    Method One, Usergroups (mentioned above)
    • Create a usergroup for your specific users
    • Create private node(s)
    • Edit node permissions to revoke permissions for any usergroup who shouldn't have visibility
    Method Two, Person by Person
    • Create private node(s)
    • Check "set private node" checkbox
    • Add individual users to access list

    Thank you. I think that the first method will do the trick :)
