Opening a hidden private group to everyone.

Post by RJaxon » Sun Feb 08, 2009 7:31 pm

Hello everyone. I need help figuring out how to fix something on my forum.

I have a section of my forum that is hidden unless I grant their username access to it. So only members of that group that I've granted access in the Users & groups/manage groups can see this section. Someone else on the phpbb forum (The actual one) was kind enough to set this up for me so I'm not sure the steps he took to set it up.

Anyway, I'd now like to make this private section open to all members. Basically, I want it to be accessible to anyone who goes to the forum so it's no longer private.

Could someone walk me through the steps to accomplish this? Thanks for any help you can provide.

Thank you very much. That did the trick.

One little thing though. The section is still hidden unless you are signed into the forum (It's there when you are logged into the forum but if you're not signed in it's gone). Where do I change that setting?

Thank you again.

Instead of registered users, choose guests
Then set the level of access you want such as read only.
