Question about private forums

This is a question for the JForum Gurus:

Apollogies in advance, because I feel this is a common question and also feel I'm asking the wrong terms to the search engine.

So, it is possible to implement private forums in such way that users need to register and log in even before see categories, forums and messages? I want to have kind of private/confidential discussions. Don't want to be publicy available messages.

Thank you in advance.
Antonio.

I actually solved this managing Web Container's Realms and Roles, but now I have 2 passwords to mantain (not big deal right now). Any way, I still would like to know the developer's avise about this.

Thank you in advace.

Nevermind, I've found how to do it with JForum.

Thanks.

It looks like that link has disappeared. Any suggestions on this? I have tried various things in the admin and I can't make it work some how.

When I go to that link, I get:

You have to be a member of all the following groups to access this page. If this is incorrect please contact your administrator.

Ah, I think I figured something out. Remove all groups from the Anonymous user. Then no forums list for anon. Is that the right way to do this?

You are right, but you have also to hide "members list" in header.htm


and "who is online" in forum_list.htm



@Rafael Steil, maybe an option later ... ?
