who can see the forum

I am a bit confused. I have set up a forum which of course I can see. Then I sign out but I can still see the forum discussions. If I go to a browser with no history of the forum I just see the login / register page.

I want to ensure that only registered users can access the forum, is this what the default behavior is?


  • In the 'Settings' go to 'Manage Roles & Permissions' and switch on 'Enable Private Communities' if you haven't already. When it's enabled only signed in users should be able to access the forum content.

  • KasparKaspar Moderator

    Or remove 'View' permissions on categories you want to be 'logged-in-only' on your Guest role

  • Many thanks both, I understand now.

    Insert categories in which users can publish discussions and those discussions will be visible those are published .
