Newbie questiom Access Rights setting
« on: May 25, 2019, 02:31:01 PM »
Hi,
I would like to make a Forum category invisible to registers users.
But in the "edit membergroup" settings there is nothing like "regular members" available. Do I need to generate a new member group, inheriting the standard settings from "regular members" and then sett alll the rights (also for the other boards + categories) to "visible"?
regards
Michael

Edit the board's settings, rather than in the membergroup settings - you can set which groups can see a board from there.

Hi Arantor.... Thanks. I did so, but it was not working. Now I found out, it IS working.... I just could not see it while registered with my ADMIN account ;-)
Obviously it is not possible to hide it from ADMIN ;-/

regards

Nope, admin can see everything all the time.

Yes....so stupid from me.... trying for hours to NOT see that category ;-)
I guess it will take me some time to find all the options and get a better understanding of the complete system.
