I need a code to hide a section of the forum, and only available by clicking on a link to go there. Is that possible?

It's for a very complicated yet very shmexy code I'm using via password protection (not members passwords; a secret password that nobody knows yet on my forum except me.

It is not advisable to use JavaScript password because they are easily crackable.

Which part you want to hide? a forum, sub-forum or category?

well basically its simple create a new forum then set the permission such that

VIEW Forum
Admin -yes
moderators-no
members-no

Read Topics
Admins-yes
mod-yes
members-yes

Open New topics and so on
Admins-yes
mod-yes
members-yes

then give a link to that hidden forum by visiting the forum and extracting the link and placing it where ever you want..

PS:You mite be able to see that forum/subforum on your forum but it wont be visible to your members and can be only accessed with that link Wink


~Regards~
