Guests allowed access to SOME boards
« on: January 14, 2011, 08:23:36 AM »
Hi - I recently upgraded my forum to RC2 v4... the latest version... but now I seem to have lost the ability to change the guest browsing options...

Before - I had it that guests could browse one category only - no posting or editing... it was an about the forum type of section... They could also see stickies - or at least I think that they can...

How in RC2 can I set this up?

thanks

tony

Admin>>Configuration>>Features and Options>>General... Allow guests to browse the forum
Modify your boards to give guests access to the boards you want them to see
Admin>>Members>>Permissions... set permissions accordingly for your guests.. (you will have to do this for all permission profiles you use)

After you give access in Admin>>Configuration>>Features and Options>>General... Allow guests to browse the forum, then that would be controlled in Forums/Boards/Modify Boards, click modify on the board you want to modify access and in Allowed Groups: you would check the group you want to access that board.
