Hidden forums have additional functionality. Messages post in those forums will not appear anywhere else but the forum. Which means search engine will not look @ them, showposts won't show them and on the user's profile page posts in such a forum will not appear as their last post.

So how does one create a hidden category/forum in the current FudForum version? I looked in the documentation and controls and can't find that anywhere. I'd like to use this feature to set up a private administrator's forum.

Read the docs, specifically the docs about permissions system.

Thanks. I found it. Sorry for the dumb question. I was just looking in the wrong place.
