XF 1.3 How to completely hide Forum from Guests ?

I do have a "Portal" as my "Homepage" (meaning: the "Forum" is not showing at the "Homepage").

Now I would like to completely hide the "Forum interface" from "Guests" (unregistered Visitors) and also completely hide the "Forum interface" from searchengines.

I have tried to do this via "User Group Permission" by revoking "View Node" for "Guests".

However it still shows the "Forum Tab" in the NavBar and it also shows the Sidebar in the "Forum List".



Is there an Addon or any other way in order to completely hide the "Forum interface" from "Guests" ?



Appreciate your help!


Many thanks!

Set the View permission to Not Set (No).

Some elements will still be visible, but nothing of any use.

I wasn't aware you wanted that to show.

In which case, you will need to edit some of the templates and wrap them in guest conditional statements, depending on which bits you want to hide.
