What gives? Why can't I set up my forums to be private? What do I need to do to make them that way?
You have to set the access mask of the forum to "No Access" for any group you do not want to have access.
By deleteing the guest account, you may have to install a new DB to get it working again.
I have set up the forum to require email verification. I have had a few people try to register and I am not receiving any emails for verification, nor am I able to set up user accounts in the forum.
