Yes, a private community is exactly what I’m after. We’re a several-thousand member strong community who have been operating on a standard forums software for 8 years, and trying to convert to a more “social” type platform. (no blogging at all, but ironically WP appears to fit the bill the best) 🙂
Well, so can the site administrators. I was hoping the moderators would be able to moderate the private groups as well… But I guess this works. There’s not as great a need to moderate private groups since these are not publicly visible like they are on our current setup.
That’s for the replies!
I think I’ve got this one sorted… I created a “private” group with group forums, and invited the administrator members. The 6 admin team members can see this forum, and the moderators cannot.
Thanks @modemlooper. My question is this, though: I want to have 2 hidden forums, one for the moderator team, and one for the site administration team.
– I do not want regular users to access either one (done!)
– I do not want the moderator team accessing the site administrators forum.
It’s this second option that I’m not sure about.
Thanks for the reply. I think I’m fully installed, and now trying to get things set up. One question that I haven’t found an answer for yet… are there different moderator “levels”?
In our current forums setup, we have a forum board that only the site administrators (6 of us) can access. The moderators (a team of about 10 or so) have access to, and “powers” over, the rest of the forums areas.
Can something like this be set up in this environment, so that the site administrators can have a private discussion area, not accessible by the moderator team?
