    How does one configure the forum so if not logged in, one can only view the forum home page but there are no links to view forum content, posts etc.?

    That is, configure so that search engines can index all the content, and logged in members can search and read all content, but other site visitors will not be able to browse all content, just see the home page?

    Guests and search engines have the same permissions.

    What you are suggesting is referred to as cloaking and Google could blacklist you for it.

    Whoa... thanks for the heads up on that, Brogan. Glad I asked!
