Public Forums with Private Grouping


New member
Hi members,

I have a private forum and a few public forums. I want the private forum viewable to all members, but restricted to a usergroup to post on that forum.

At the moment I have made the node for that forum private and this allows the usergroup to post there. Without setting node permissions for the entire forum....How can I do this?

Thank you.

Admin CP -> Users -> Node Permissions -> [click the private forum] -> [click a group]

Revoke these permissions for the Registered group. Allow them for the group that is allowed to post in there.
