Do you have to manually put members into those groups? I was trying to figure out a way to make certain members automatically become a part of a group or something.
My ideal scenario would be being able to make a forum private/hidden and to only allow those with the URL to have access. The goal is to easily allow a large group of people to enter into a private forum by passing out the URL and having another large group of people have their own forum by passing out the URL. Robin, I have been browsing around a lot and you seem to be very knowledgeable on this stuff. Any way solution you know of? Unfortunately, I am not so tech savvy with this stuff.
Hi, so I have an odd problem. First, mine doesn’t just say “private”, it says “private: private”.
Also, I can’t seem to figure out how to make the forum private and yet give people access to it–it seems like an all or nothing deal (the only reason I was considering making it private was to avoid spam. Changing the page’s status to private prevents anyone but the admin from seeing, hidden makes the forum not even come up, and public seems to get me attacked by spam bots. Does anyone know how alter permissions or have any easy alternative?
