Hidden Boards
« on: December 30, 2008, 06:55:28 AM »
At Wayne's excellent recommendation, I moved the book, book reviews and PDFs on cheese making to a new Library Board.

And then switched that Library Board, the Cheese Making Recipe Exchange Board to hidden for Guests as a way of enticing them to join.

I also switched The Lounge Board to hidden to give our Members more privacy in those posts.

Hope y'all agree with these changes, if not let me know . . . John/Cheese Head.

Update, moved recipes into their new respective Cheese Type Boards, so Recipes are no longer blocked to Guests.

How would I know if I can see the hidden boards if they're hidden?

Click "Logout" from the top menu bar and view the screen as a Guest and you will no longer be able to see any Boards that are Hidden from Guests.

I set some of mine so they can see the title of the board but not it's content that an even bigger incentive to see "what's behind door #3." so to speak.

Debi, I haven't been able to find that feature in this forum's software.

UPDATE: The ShoutBox Chat feature recently installed at the top of the Forum's homepage is only visable to Members.

I'm not familiar with this program but in mine you have to set permissions for boards then for sections - it's a PITA but that's how it works. Sometimes it's handy.

In the section your create boards do you have a place for permissions?

I like the way you rearranged the furniture!
