Indicating private (members only and other) areas

Recommended Posts

Does the Invision software allow a page to show whether a sub-forum is visible to the public?

https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/254431-theconversionproscom/?tab=comments#comment-1349242 for example, I had no idea that the area was private until after I tried to view my post with a different web browser.

Eventually I discovered that https://forums.malwarebytes.com/forum/44-research-center/ is public but its six sub-forums are not; and I have no idea which other areas are non-public.

Greetings,

I do not know of any indicator, however I do know that any areas that users in specific groups have access to exclusively will not be visible unless they are logged into their accounts.  Users without access to a specific area will simply not be able to see that area at all and if a link is posted to a thread within one of those areas they will simply receive an error if they click on it.

No, it isn't.  For example there are staff only sub-forums as well as Group Membership only sub-forums.

Being a member of a specific Forum Group will give a member specific privileges of Forum capability and access.

Examples:  Honorary Member  & Malware Hunters
