Hi, sorry if this is a dumb question but I can't figure out how to do this. I don't want inauthenticated users to be able to do anything other than log in. How can I set this up?

If they log in, they are no longer unauthenticated users.

If you don't want anonymous users to post messages, you can set that in the Admin Panel.

Right, once they log in they will be authenticated and then they can do whatever they want. What I'd like is for anonymous users to not even be able to see the list of forums, is that possible?
