Hey.

I've got a forum that I want to be open to the general public. However, I want members to be able to post stuff that's "safe" and not visible to the whole www.

I figured Password Posting would enable this but that, strangely, is visible to all, and just requires members to enter a password in order to post.

Is there a solution to this? Is a really important aspect of the site I'm trying to achieve.

TIA

Login as an "admin" user and look for "Admin: | Group Manager" on top of all forum pages.
Now, click on "Group Manager" and set "Visible" to "No" for anonymous users.

Perfect, thank you!

Is there a way of prohibiting specific members from viewing that board?

Yes, on the same screen - enter user's name, set flag and hit "Add Member".
