Hi All,

I have one problem

I install jforum. that show all menu option like Search ,Recent Topics,Hottest Topics , Member Listing , Moderation Log etc. to guest user but i want to hide some option from the guest user like moderation Log, Member Listing etc. and also hide from register user. (How to give privileges to guest user,register user & moderator).

For the moderation log, go into the admin console > general > role and check the setting for "Can see Moderation Activity Log". You want this to be no for non-admins.

A guest user is the "anonymous" user id. You can create a separate group for it if you like. And you could use the admin console to restrict access to all forums rendering search/hotest topics/etc useless.

I think we had to customize the header.htm file to customize member listing not showing up.
