I have read all the making private forum posts but none do what I really want. I want to make forum 11 private only to registered users, I want unregistered users to see it in the list and to see the topics in the Latest Discussions but not be able to read and if they click on a topic or the forum bring them to a Sign In screen. I came close with adding $show=TRUE; to bb_func_vforum.php and $clForums=array(11);
$clForumsUsers=array(); to bb_specials.php but they couldn't see the new topics from that forum in the Lastest Discussion area and when they clicked on the forum a long red error message was posted instead of the sign in screen. Is there an easier way to do this?
