private access
I have created a forum for me and my mods to discuss board issues privately, but I can't seem to get them in. I went into the users panel, and clicked them to have the ability to see hidden forums, and to have access to private areas, but they can seem to do anything within that forum. They can't even see a new thread option for posting.

Thanks in advance for the help.

P.S.

when most of my members change their personal pic image, it usually takes upto two weeks for the board to finally enact the change.

Hi DarkSpectre :smile:

If you've set the private forum's Posting Restrictions to Mods & Admins the easiest way to accomplish having your mods be able to access and there is to assign them as moderators of the staff forum which will give them access to it. You have to assign them as a moderator there for them to be able to enter and post inside if you have that Posting Restriction set to Mods & Admins. If you like you can choose to set the Posting Restrictions to Specified Users, Mods & Admins and then you can select the mods names from your userlist and on the select menu pull down to Assign Private Forum Access. When you have a private forum hidden you have to take this a step further and select them from the userlist and on the menu go down to Assign Hidden Forum Viewing Ability which also applies if you have forums you want some users to be able to see and others not to.

Re: private access
Thanks a bunch, Nick. I'll give it a try. I guess that I falsely understood that the board's mods had access to everything.
