It would be good if you can add the feature to hide Category's from some groups so you could have a mod only Category and so on, hope to see it soon

many thanks

If a user can't see the forums within the category, the category is hid. I use this feature myself. Apparently there is/was a bug in 1.93 in regards to this. But the feature is there.


"It's a case of RTFM.. the only problem being we don't have a manual!"

When I post FP:Mek in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting. (Yes I stole this off Ederon 🙂 )
yeah, I have 1.93 and the category is still displayed even though the role doesn't have access to and can't see the boards under the category.

A work around is to create a forum (hidden) and place it anywhere, then create sub forums also hidden with the same role permissions. The people who don't have permission will never know of the existence of the hidden forums. I typically put this at the end of the category/forums list.
