Add a password to access a forum or discussion

edited January 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 Help
Is there a way to add a password to a forum or discussion so any users, whether they have registered or not have to enter the password to access the thread or forum?



  • Not entirely sure what your trying to achieve if you are going to tell people the password and know who you want to view it, then just create a user role and set the forum permissions to only allow people with that role to view the forum. Then set the role for a user to include this new role.

    If this is not what you want to achieve then apologies.
