    I am new to Xenforo and finding it all a bit confusing, so please bear with me :)
    I want to make a board that is totally private, and only visible to registered users.
    I can see how to make individual forums (nodes) private, but is there a setting to make the whole board private? I cannot find this.
    Many thanks!

    If you want to privatize the whole board in one single action I suppose you could just make all the forum nodes children of a single category node and make that category private and restricted to registered members mods and staff or whatever.

    Try setting the Unregistered / Unconfirmed user group like this:

    Admin CP -> Users -> User Groups -> Unregistered / Unconfirmed -> Quick check all -> Not Set (No)

    There's no easy method of doing this, I settled with making the forums private for guests and a couple of add-on's and template edits to remove the Members tab, forum statistics and such. This is really something they should look at in future releases.
