Hi all,

I installed this forum for my friends and they want to use this as a private forum. When a user navigates to forum, they have to see nothing and will be redirected to login page. After they inpur their username/pass, they can access the forum. Is there any way to this without creating new login page because I want to use old login page of YAF ?

found the following link, but it required me creating a new login page, but is there any way to reuse login page of YAF ?

Thanks and have a nice day.

You only need to set the Access Masks for all forums. For guest to No Access, and enable the checkbox Hide if no access

Thanks for your answer. However, A blank forum is still displayed when user don't login. Is there any way display login page instead of a blank forum ?
I mean when user don't login, if they navigate to my forum, they will be redirect to login page immediately.

Yes you can do that in the host settings under login settings exist the option Require User Login. That option you need to enable.
