Is there a way to hide a forum?


I don't just want to make a forum not postable or readable, I know how to do that. What I would like is to completely hide the forum from view. Is this possible?

Is there a way logged in users can write and read to a forum and still have that forum hidden?

Re: Is there a way to hide a forum?


Yes.

Courtesy of Smackdown, in this topic: Board Owner Basics

********

Here is how to do it:

To make a forum private so that only the board owner, admins, moderators and any persons you want to give access to. Goto;
Control Panel > Select Board > Manage > Security Management > Advanced Security Settings > Click Fine Tune 'The Forum'

Set the 'Read' access to 'Require Membership'
Set the 'Write' access to 'Require Membership'
Set the 'Membership Gaining Method' to 'Invite-only membership'.
Then click 'Change Security Preferences'
If there are any users who are not admin/mods that you want to grant access to the private forum you then need to click the 'See Members' button and then type in the users names.

But what if I want everyone to be able to read it? I know this may sound like an odd request, but I have a reason for it.

To elaborate, I want a forum hidden but readable by all (even those not logged in) and writeable to none. However, when I make it readable to all and writeable to none, the forum still shows. There's no way to hide it and keep it readable-to-all?

Re: Is there a way to hide a forum?


The CSS trick has to be turned on for this, and there will be a small gap between the previous and next forums, but give this a shot. With the CSS trick turned on, the following CSS will make the 5th forum invisible on your main page:

#fl_td_5_1, #fl_td_5_2, #fl_td_5_3, #fl_td_5_4, #fl_td_5_5 { display:none; }

If the forum is listed first on your main page, then change the 5's in bold to 1's. If the forum is listed 2nd, then change those 5's to 2's, etc.
