Perhaps you can explain the larger picture of what you hope to accomplish. Are you trying to send people that are registering to the forum to view a certain thread or post? Why don't you want it to be visible to everyone? Why can't it just be visible for guests (which is what people who haven't registered are)?

Hi Wildcard.

OK what i want to achieve is that if a spammer comes to fast registers on my site and finds he needs to go to a link to get an answer for a question he will then not bother joining, so in this case i need to have it so when they come to my site they can not see the answer as a Guest, and that only the person doing the registration will see the answer when they click the link.

This particular thing can be done by using the permissions setting on the forum.

Simply assign the permissions you want to "Administrators" and "Awaiting Activation", whilst revoking permissions for everyone else (Guests and Members, as you said).

Depending on preference, you might wanna go to Settings -> Forum Home Options -> Hide Private Forums? and set that to "Yes". This will make it so the forums are completely hidden to those who cannot view them. Otherwise, they'll still show up even though they cannot be visited.

Hi Settyness.

I have already trailed the permission with Awaiting Activation, but if you go and register that permission will not work for people registering. that will only work after registration is completed and then they fall into the group Awaiting Activation, because they haven't verified their email.

That's the reason why I suggested Group Promotion. 

Make an identical group to Awaiting Activation but give them the necessary permissions to view whatever forums is required.
