I want to keep a new forum closed/under development, but allow people to sign up pending the grand opening day.

Any ideas?

So, you want people to be able to register but not see any part of the forums?

Temporarily change the permissions of User Group 2 (Registered Users) to "No" on Can View permissions.

There are other ways but that would be the easiest one and does not require a mod.

I was thinking of leaving the "closed for business" message too, but I guess I could do that with a notice.

Thanks for the suggestion

I guess that closing access to the main usergroups will show them the standard "no permission" message, which I don't want - and I'll have to do the same for blogs, articles, galleries too.

I could do that and alter the "no permission" message, but allowing registration while keeping the "website closed" message would be far better and easier to reverse.
