I would like to know if in minibb is it possible to have secret room, that only some users can access to it and other users can't see and visit it.

My english isn't perfect but i hope you understand me.

You can protect whole forums by one password, and spread this password within your users. Look up for $protectWholeForum, $protectWholeForumPwd options in setup_options.php also as in manual.

what about just one topic not whole forum, just one topic?

Is this also possible becouse nothing is said about this in manual.

Try to paste in bb_plugins.php the code like that:

if($action=='vthread' and $topic==TOPIC_ID and !in_array($user_id, array(USER_ID_1, USER_ID_2, USER_ID_3) ) ){

$title.=$l_accessDenied; $errorMSG='Sorry! You are not allowed to visit this particular topic, because you are not in allowed users list.'; $correctErr='';
echo load_header();
echo ParseTpl(makeUp('main_warning'));
$totaltime=sprintf ("%01.3f", ($endtime-$starttime));
if(isset($includeFooter)) include($includeFooter); else echo ParseTpl(makeUp('main_footer'));


Substitute TOPIC_ID by your topic ID and specify array of allowed user IDs instead of USER_ID_1, USER_ID_2, USER_ID_3... etc.
