Permissions: limiting certain forums (but not all!) to logged in users
I've found several threads indicating that I should be able to do this by just setting custom permissions for guest users, for each category, but it doesn't actually work that way. It's a little more complicated than normal because it's an imported forum from phpBB3, and I had to use SQL database editing to restore the original roles so there even WAS one for guests.
It's kind of important that I be able to at least keep Google from indexing discussions in a particular category; it's a creative writing sub forum and users are concerned that posting to a Google indexed board may technically constitute publication. Also, it would be nice to have a moderator/administrator only "backstage" forum like we did before. As it is I can hide forums from registered members but not from guests.
I'm running the beta 3.
