Forum Group permissions readable/visible permission option

I tried to seek it out but no luck.
How can I make forum/category visible but not readable/accessible for guests?
Currently if i'm unchecking Read Forum for guests for lets say VIP category forum then they can't that forum/category at all. They even don't know it exist. I tried to do that trought link from visible/readable forum post but if to click on that it will say:

Info
Bad request. The link you followed is incorrect or outdated.
Go back

I know that in phpBB it was solved like "You need to log in to read this forum" or so. They had more options together with visible category or visible forum permissions & user group permissions.

Maybe Im stupid but I just can't find simple solution for that smile Or just install phpBB?

Re: Forum Group permissions readable/visible permission option

When editing a forum, you can change the per-group permissions for that forum.

Categories should always be visible, unless you disable the "Read board" permission for the guest group.

I hope that helps a bit. smile

Can you clarify what you mean? What steps did you take? What happened? What did you expect to happen?

Re: Forum Group permissions readable/visible permission option

Hello and thank you,
I want non registered users to see the categories but once they click on one they will be required to register.

Ive tried what you mentioned in this post and it doesnt work. Read Board is enabled and I choose guest to not be able to read a category it just doesnt show the category at all.

Thanks

Re: Forum Group permissions readable/visible permission option

Your use case is different than the one described by amority in the original post. What you're asking for (listing forums, but not showing their content) is currently not possible with FluxBB.
