Hi,

quick question: we have a subforum that is only accessible for certain users. Therfore we want to exclude that subforum from the general RSS feed. Is that possible? And if so, how? I sadly couldn't find an option for that.

The RSS Feed will return empty result for users who don't have access to that forums. You don't need to disable it. Just login with a regular user or test as guest and you'll see empty result (use private browser session). Thus there is no individual forum RSS disabling options, you can disable all rss feeds using according option in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Features admin page.

Hi,

well, yes, but the problem is that you can still see the title of the thread, at least. So the normal user can see that those topics exists, but he can not access it.

I meant the titles as well. They should not be available for guest and regular users too.

Hi,

we tried it, and everything shows up. I am not sure whey this is happening. We do have a subforum that is only available for moderators, and that does not show up. We do however, have another subforum that is only available for a certain user group (which are not moderators/admins), and threads in this subforum do show up. I guess this is the problem?
