How do I show a forum that exists but is inaccessible to users?

I have a couple forums that are reserved for adults. Besides a welcome message telling them the forums exist, I want to show the 'existence' of the forum to all users, but if they click on the forum and do not have permission it says they do not have permission to read this forum.

Is there any way to do that?

Thanks!

You can use a link forum for now.
I have one on my site which is limited to registered members but guests can see the link forum and click on it: http://cliptheapex.com/community/

Additional thread viewing permissions are coming in XenForo 1.1.

So if I am patient the best solution is to wait until 1.1 it sounds like.

At the risk of being skewered any general ETA on 1.1?

This summer for 1.1.

The link forums work fine though - they do exactly what you're after.

That can be done with a custom mod.

Hide the link node for registered members.
Hide the actual node for guests.

Each group only sees the node or the link node.

Exactly as it works on my site.
Nifty!

Only negative is people who can view the forum cannot see if there is a new post.
