Is there a way to allow ONLY LOGGED-IN MEMBERS to view (most) topics (except the housekeeping/intro topics)?

I can only find controlling POSTS - that you need to be logged in to POST.

I'd like to make that:  need to be logged in to VIEW a large set of topics.

    Accepted Solution

    Yep, can do it, edit the forum permissions for each forum for the user guests,  and perhaps bots too, so they cannot view forums.
