Hello,

I am a little confused:

İf you are creating a Private Forum for the Usergroup Guest

In this example we create a private forum for Guest usergroup:

Then why disable Guest access for this Private Forum?

Edit a forum you want to make private, and set No Access for Guests.

I have 4 Forums and Juggling the Access issue. Thank you for the clarification.

Cheers
