Hi, the hidden sections, is it possible to have people who are not logged in, see the forums, but not the posts. I would like people to see the section is there, and the titles of posts, but not the actual post content, is that possible?

Hi @percysgrowroom,

sure it's possible via forum accesses. You'll just need to configure the permission in the right way:

  • Can view forum - should be checked
  • Can view topic - should be unchecked
  • Can view replies - should be unchecked

More info for Forum Accesses here:

yes @percysgrowroom, I see the problem.

Please wait a bit, I'll need to contact the developers to provide some solution for you.

I'm really sorry, but the forum cannot be embedded in the post content in your case as far as the following forum accesses are unchecked.

  • Can view topic - should be unchecked
  • Can view replies - should be unchecked

I'd suggest you display the message the "The forum can be found here" (or something like that) and link the message with the forum. 

You can style the message as you like.
