I've searched this forum without success. I am trying to block anonymous viewers from seeing any threads. Even if it blocks access to the entire site without signing in is fine with me.

Any ideas?

Navigate to the Group(s) Manager and set Visible and/or Read to No for anonymous users.

Also see documentation at http://cvs.prohost.org/index.php/Moderation#User_Group_Management

Best regards.

I have changed all access for Global Anonymous Access to NO. Yet anonymous users can still browse threads.

Strange, I've just tested it on fresh install and it's working like a charm.

Just to confirm, did you changed it from the user-land group manager or the Group Manager Control Panel?

Note the explanation on the control panel:

"The permissions shown below ONLY control the permissions group leaders will be able to change for the group's they manage. To change the user permissions please use the user-land group manager."

Thus, you need to go to the user-land group manager to perform the change.

OK I tried making the changes Globably. This didn't work. I had to make the changes per thread topic and now anonymous is not able to read topics.

Many thanks Smile
