    Is this mod supposed to be able to completely hide a forum from a users view if they dont meet the post requirement? I can only get it to show the last post data etc as private unfortunately. Anyone know if that is simply how it works?

    Thanks!

    Thats how it works dude. If they try to go into a forum, it will say they dont have the appropriate post count to view.

    Thats a shame, I might as well set up a new usergroup and use promotions :rolleyes:

    That's the whole point of this modification - so that you don't have to set up promotions. Imagine if you had 10 private forums based on post count... there would be so many secondary groups and promotions, it's not even funny. :P

    This modification makes it easy to set up.

    In your forum settings, edit the Catgory. You will see " Show Private Forum " Be sure its on NO.
