I have a question. My board is set up so that all but one category is private to users, BUT I just realized that by users that means anyone who uses BBBoy.net is there a way to set my board so that only users of my particular board can read posts or would I have to make a special member group or something to keep the posts private?

Well... As a user only becomes a member of your board when they post, nobody would ever be able to get into your board, as they can't become a member. :smile:

what you can do is to either use Member screening ("Edit Board Settings"), or make the forums private to specified users, mods & admins, then just specify that all your users are allowed access.

For the Member screening option, thet'd stop people who aren't members of your board from viewing. They click a button to get your approval, then you either accept or reject them. If you accept them, they become a member on your board, and can see/post. :smile:

For the private option, to specify that users can access, click on "Edit Users", then check the members you want to have access, and choose "Set Private Forum Access" from the drop-down menu, and select the forums. :smile:

We just moved from xsorbit and with their boards you were only a member of THAT board when you registered but now I understand you can go to any board here once you register.

Well I just figured out how to give members access to private forums, but how do I make the forums private. Sorry I'm confused. lol Not a huge deal so just get back to me when you have the time.

Click "Edit Forums", then "Edit Settings", and on the "who can view this forum", choose one of them with "specified users" in it. :smile:
