My MyBB Questions

My MyBB Questions
I am working on my own MyBB forum.
A little background.
I am still trying to decide who my target audience will be. For now, I am aiming at my close friends and family, as I live so far away from everybody I care about.
Not sure yet if there will be more members than just me and my puppet accounts. Big Grin
The forum, at the moment, is/will be designed to be shielded from the general public eye.
So far as privacy is concerned, this is where I am at:
A proxy domain.
SSL
Dedicated IP
Planned password entry.

On to the questions that I could use a little help with.

------------------------------------------------------------

"The Pit." I want a similar forum topic, designed to keep adult content from the eyes of the younger crowd. I have figured out a workaround to make it happen, but I don't think it's the right way to do it. I created a forum topic called The Hideout, and removed permissions from regular members to view it. Then I created a usergroup that can only see The Hideout, *IF* I ban them into it. Is this how you do it or is there a plugin?

Thanks!

BTW, Send me into The Pit.

That sounds fun. If you just want to learn about MyBB or putting up a forum it is a great idea. If you just want to keep in touch with your family abroad then you could use Facebook and create a private group. That only works if everybody is willing to get a FB account.

That part is correct.

This is where you went astray. Instead if creating a 'ban' group, just create a user group that can only see this hidden forum. Because it is small private forum for adult content, I'd set the group so that no one can join or leave freely- that way you can just add those that are 'old enough' yourself and there would be accountability.

Thanks, 2 clicks and I think I have got it straightened out.
