    private forums and groups

    Geoff Ruscoe Newbie

      I am new to all nukes stuff, so I'm sorry if this is a simple misunderstanding on my part, but I have searched and searched and cannot find the answer.

      I want to use the forums in such a way as to keep forums private from everybody except specific users in the groups that I set up.

      Here are more details of what I'm trying to do.

      I have created two groups.

      I want the users of a group to be able to access the forums for their group only. I have it set it up, so that you cannot see anything if you're not logged in (done, easy setting the forum to REG).

      But what I really want to do is set the forum to private and that only a user of a specific group can use the the forums set up for that group.

      I have created a group and added a user to it.

      I have created categories and forums. I have set the forums to private (and then no one not even the admin can see them).

      How can I set a forum to allow certain users (hopefully using the groups) access them. I have set them to private so no body can access them, now I just want to let one group use it.

      I was already using JBOSS 3.2.3 and I downloaded the Nukes 1.0 for mySql. Everything seems to be working great, except I can't find anyway to say that a group should have rights to certain forums.

      If someone could point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciated it!

      Thanks,
      Geoff
