Ok this one has me well flummoxed! I want to create a private forum only admins can see. Ideally so that explicit usernames are permitted to access it and nobody else, but just on the admin usergroup would be ok. I create the forum - I can see it, guests can see it. fair enough. I change the permission on "Registered" usergroup to "deny" - and on administrators to "Allow" - and now I can't see it either!! Is something not working right or am I misisng something totally obvious? Surely if I deny registered members that shouldn't stop an admin seeing it! I have also tried ticking the "private node" box, and then entering my username in the search box, and explicitly allowing myself all permission (Allow) on that forum, and I *still* can't see it! So...how do I make a forum that *I* can see, but nobody else can??
