To add a new forum to an existing category select Management from the Forum Admin Menu. You will see a screen similar to Add Forum Fig 03. For this tutorial we documented the process for creating this very forum. We see ADMIN Forums entered into the Create new forum block.



Upon clicking the Create New forum button our screen will change to something similar to Add forum Fig 04 where we entered a brief description of this forum. When we click the Create new forum button again we will see a screen similar to Add Forum Fig 05.





We have created a new forum. Now we must assign permissions to our new forum. To assign permissions select Permissions from the Forum Admin section of our Forums Administration Menu. If you have clicked the correct link your screen will now look similar to Add Forum Fig 06. Use the drop down box to select the forum we have just created; ADMIN Forums that we can see is highlighted already in Add Forum Fig 06.


Click Look Up Forum and you will see a screen similar to Add Forum Fig 07. This forum is not intended to be a public forum, nor is it intended to be available to registered users. For this reason we have selected Private for the Forum: ADMIN Forums.



So far so good, we have created a forum within an existing category and we have designated the new forum as a private forum. Now we must give someone permission to view the forum or no one will be able to access our new forum. Add Forum Fig 08 shows our new forum designated as a private forum. Select permissions from the Group Admin menu as shown in Add Forum Fig 08 and you will see a screen similar to Add Forum Fig 09



When you arrive at the Group Permission Control screen as similar to Add Forum Fig 09 you will select a group from the drop down list. You can also assign individual members which is covered in another section. In this example we will want to add two groups to have permission to be able to access the forum: ADMIN Forums. First we will add JAX Computer Clients otherwise you would not be able to access the forum. Once we highlight the group Jax Computer Clients we will click the button Look Up Forum at which point we will be taken to a screen similar to Add Forum Fig 10



Add Forum Fig 10 shows us the group permissions control for Jax Computer Clients. We have already scrolled down to and set permissions to allow access. We did not select is moderator for this group as that is not their purpose. You will note other forums are listed in this page with disallowed Access selected. The listings you see are private forums that we maintain with each of our clients. Yours is but one among them. You can see your private forum. I can see your private forum. No one else can see your private forum.




In Add Forum Fig 11 we have selected the link click here to return to Group Permissions because we have one more group to give permission to access the forum: ADMIN Forum.



Add Forum Fig 12 shows that we have selected the JAX Computers private group to give permissions to for the forum ADMIN Forum. When we click look up group we will se a screen similar to Add Forum Fig 13




Add Forum Fig 13 shows we have selected allowed access and is moderator for the groups JAX Computers. We can also see that this group has access to and is a moderator of many of the groups you can see in the image. In this manner we can control who sees what in an organized and predictable manner. Rather than add JAX Computers IT Staff to each and every group we have created a group and assign it to the categories we want out IT Staff to have access to.



Finally, in Add Forum Fig 14 we see our newly created forum in the list of forums under the category Portal Management (ADMIN) at our website.
