Block unreg/public access to Forum posts

edited March 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8


Just integrated Vanilla and wordpress today, excellent piece of software.
A quick question, I have a forum that I need to keep private.

Is it possible to block the forum posts / posts contents if the user is not registered?
I don’t mind them viewing the categories.

Thanks, Joe

    If you go to the Dashboard -> Roles & Permissions, there's an option called "Switch to Private" at the top of that page. I think that should solve your problem.

    @brainolution what version of vanilla are you talking about that has this function? I don't see it in 18.0.4

    I would also be interested to know how to create a private community.
