    Is there away to show Category but not posts?
    I think its a node permissions thing.

    I want guest to see the Category, but not whats inside. Also is there
    a way to show it as locked?

    I hate when people click and it says must be a members to do that, would be nice if there
    was away to show it was "locked". I think VB had some kinda option or mod like that.

    Thanks

    If you mean like this:

    Revoke the View threads by others and Post new thread permissions for the category.

    Hi there, set it up but does not show to anyone that it exist. I am trying to make a ladies section.
    But if its not viewable they wont know to ask to join it.

    Make sure that View Node is set to Inherit for the forums (and of course set to Allow for the user group).

    Hi there,
    Not sure I followed that part. (View Node is set to Inherit for the forums ?) Oddly I couldn't find this in the help section as its should be
    a simple point and click idea, since its an option. I can get everything set. However it either shows
    and is open to be posted by anyone. or is hidden and no one sees it. Do I have to create a group that can only see that thread?
    Is that the idea behind this ? But I need it seen and not active to everyone .

    Sorry I meant in the Node permission set View Node to Inherit. This will mean that the node can be seen.

    Then as Brogan says, revoke the View threads by others and Post new thread permissions for the category.
