Totally new to VB (so don't shoot me if this is obvious!), still deciding if its what we want to be honest but it looks promising.

Anyway is it possible to have a forum which is viewable by all but which only moderators can post in?

Also tied in with this is it possible to have a forum which only mods can post new threads in but users can post replies to?

For example we want a news forum but only mods can post new threads but users can reply.

Also is it possible to have a certain forum not visible in the main board but visible if you go directly to it? I know you can have private forums etc but I wouldn't want it private just not in the main section...

bobbydavro, please go to this (http://www.vbulletin.com/members/vbulletin.org.php) page and enter your username, to show you are licensed. (you will need to use your customer number and password to access that page)

Also you should really ask this at vBulletin.com's How Do I? forum.

Ok I'm all regged up now and ready to go :)

I've sussed the having a forum so only mods can post in but regged users can reply in. Using the forum permissions settings.

Along these lines is it possible to have a forum where for someone to add a new thread it must be moderated 1st before it will appear but users can post replies to existing threads without moderation. I have set up the forum so that new threads require moderation but this means that replies also require moderation which I don't want.

And the other part of my query

You mean for the last part?

Yeh this will work in the sense that it won't be fully visible on the main forum page ie you will have to enter the sub forum 1st but I was wondering if you could make it totally not visible on the main forum.

To explain...

I want a forum on the bulletin board that isn't visible when viewing the main board but it is there so I can jump straight to it. So not hidden but just not visible on the main forum page. Almost like a seprate board but not. (confused? I am :D)
