Advanced Security Settings


You can modify you boards security settings for the board and individual forums. Goto;
Control Panel > Select Board > Manage > Security Management > Advanced Security Settings

Fine Tuning Board Security Settings

You can fine tune the whole board settings. (Those which you loaded from the Quick Security Settings).

However you need to be careful with this as people have set the settings in a way that noone can ever view/post on the board.

Ie they have unintentionally set the requirements to view the board as Registered Members Only, the same for posting. But have then said that you need to post to become a member.

Fine Tuning A Forum Security Settings

Control Panel > Select Board > Manage > Security Management > Advanced Security Settings > Click Fine Tune 'The Forum'

When you have clicked Fine Tune 'The Forum' it will take you to a similar screen where you can alter the settings just for a forum. So you can make a particular forum on your board private.

Password - means they need a password to enter. There is only one password that everyone uses for that forum. There is a box near the Password option where you create that password.

Application - A user makes an application to join and then a board owner/administrator needs to manually accept/reject applications by going to;
Control Panel > Select Board > Manage > Security Management > Review Membership Applications.

Invitation - The board owner/admin sets who can enter on an "the invitation list" by clicking 'See members' and adding members to the list. If you ain't invited you can't get in.

No Membership - There can be no members at all.

The most commonly requested question about forums by users is how to create a Private Forum on a public board

Here are how to do it

To make a forum private so that only the board owner, admins, moderators and any persons you want to give access to. Goto;
Control Panel > Select Board > Manage > Security Management > Advanced Security Settings > Click Fine Tune 'The Forum'

Set the 'Read' access to 'Require Membership'
Set the 'Write' access to 'Require Membership'
Set the 'Membership Gaining Method' to 'Invite-only membership'.
Then click 'Change Security Preferences'
If there are any users who are not admin/mods that you want to grant access to the private forum you then need to click the 'See Members' button and then type in the users names.

Creating A Forum Where Topics Need Verifying


Here is how you create a forum where new topics must be verified by a board owner/admin/mod before they can be viewed by normal users.

There is an option in the 'Fine Tune The Forum' to require that all new topics have to be verified by the owner/administrator or moderator before they are shown to normal users.

To select this option you need to goto
Control Panel > Select Board > Manage > Security Management > Advanced Security Settings > Click Fine Tune 'The Forum'

Check the box for 'True (USENET-style) moderation (new topics only):'. Then click 'Change Security Preferences' to save the changes

The owner/administrator or a moderator has to then verify the topic. All topics posted under this option will be shown in the topic list with Hidden in the title. To unhide the topic an owner/admin/mod has to select the topic(s) to unhide using the moderator options at the bottom left of the topic list page.

Creating An Archive Forum


There are some limits to Runboard.
You can only have a maximum of 20,000 topics per forum. When further topics are posted the oldest topics drop off (Are deleted).

Therefore to prevent losing topics some users (like myself) use archives. Basically its like any other forum where you can store old topics, then when that forum gets to 20,000 topics simply create a new archive forum (Archives 2 etc)

Here is how you create a typical archive forum.

To make an archive forum so no new posts can be made in an archive, users can only view the topics. Goto;
Control Panel > Select Board > Manage > Security Management > Advanced Security Settings > Click Fine Tune 'The Forum'

Set the 'Read' access to 'Require Membership'
Set the 'Write' access to 'Require Membership'
Set the 'Membership Gaining Method' to 'Invite-only membership'.
Then click 'Change Security Preferences'
If there are any users who are not admin/mods that you want to grant access to the private forum you then need to click the 'See Members' button and then type in the users names.

Any topics that you want to put in the archive. Use the moderator options and select the topics then move them to the archive forum.

Creating A Read Only Forum


So you want to create a read only forum that members and guests can read but no new topics/posts can be created. This is how you go about it.

Control Panel > Select Board > Manage > Security Management > Advanced Security Settings > Click Fine Tune 'The Forum'

Set the 'Read' access to Everyone
Set the 'Write' access to 'Require Membership'
Set the 'Membership Gaining Method' to 'Invite-only membership'.
Then click 'Change Security Preferences'

So who do you want to be able to post in the forum?

If there are any users who are not admin/mods that you want to grant posting acess to the read only forum you then need to click the 'See Members' button and then type in the users names.

Change Board Theme/Layout


Once you board has been created you can choose to use one of the pre-defined layouts that Runboard has available thanks to the efforts of some users.

To access the Pre-Defined Theme/Layouts goto;
Control Panel > Select Board > Manage > Change Board Theme/Layout

There are several different colored themes available. A preview is also shown of what each of the predefined themes look like.

Copy it to the custom layout
Insert description here

Do not change the custom layout (if any), just switch to using the new one
