    Hi I am moving some posts from one forum to other forums. In the interim I don't want the private forum viewable by anyone other than admins.

    What's the best way to set it up so that the admin can view and move forum posts from a private forum to other public forums, but not allow regular members to view the private forum.

    Set the forum as private and explicitly allow access to the users you wish.

    I've been using XF now for almost three years with great success. I am trying to set up a private subforum that's invite only and invisible to all but those specifically invited.

    I've created a separate permission group that will allow access to this subforum. The problem that I'm having is connecting this permission group to the actual subforum.

    How do I get this permission group into this subforum? I created a new category for "private forums" and am about to create the first subforum under it. I know how to make them private thanks to Jake's post above.

    I figured it out. The problem I was having was that I created a category for private forums and couldn't apply the permission groups to that feature but could for the actual subforum.

    Never mind.
