Solved: 11 Years, 9 Months ago Is there a way to "hide" a forum?

I tried two(2) different ways:

Way no. 1) Edit permissions to a forum itself (the forum is "under" a viewable category):
- 'Guests', 'Registered' , 'Awaiting Activation' and 'Moderators' : no forum view / yes thread view (everyone else, but guests, can post and edit)
- 'Administrators' and 'Super Moderators' : no change ("All")
- 'Banned' : no change (nothing)

Way no. 2) Create a category and remove the 'view forum' permission and left all other permissions as regular, then create a forum "under it" and leave the permissions to default.


in both cases I got:
Guests cannot access the forum - they have to login. Everyone else (except 'Banned', 'Administrators' and 'Super Moderators') get a message that they don't have the proper permissions to view this forum. 'Administrators' and 'Super Moderators' have full access (as regular). 'Banned' are banned - so its ok.



Ori...
P.S. Sorry for the grammar/spelling mistakes - I'm Dyslectic (and the speller has its own limitations).
Of two equivalent theories or explanations, all other things being equal, the simpler one is to be preferred.
