New forum only visible by admins

When we create a new forum in the administration panel, this one automatically have the default permissions for each group. I understand this logic, but I don't find this normal.

As we cannot specify the name and the description of the forum before it's created, we have a "New forum" who is visible by all the members and visitors until we modify its options.

Why not let new forum only visible by the administrators ? We have to modify the options to specify a name and a description, so why not let the administrators choose the permissions at this time ? There is a "Revert to default" button for those who want let the default value so it don't ask more action from the us.

Re: New forum only visible by admins

Another solution might be to allow all of the basic settings to be set before the forum is created: name, description, and permissions.

Re: New forum only visible by admins

I vaguely recall this coming up at some point and the general idea was to redesign this page totally in the future, so that all details can be set before the actual forum is created.

Now that 1.4.0 is out we have a couple bugs and things to fix (i.e. 1.4.1), but soon we will be looking at what the plans are for the future, so maybe we can aim to do this in the next release.

Re: New forum only visible by admins

i would envision with jquery, when a create new forum link is clicked, no action is taken, but a little form on screen appears asking for forum data. when the 'submit' button is clicked on this form, the forum is created.
