Am I Missing Something?

G'day y'all.

I've tried a search for a solution to my problem but can't find anything that matches exactly. Wonder if someone can help.

Basically, I want to stop people from accessing the forums (either reading OR posting) until I approve it.

I want them to be able to register their account and access every other feature of the website but NOT the forums. I will only activate the forums once I get further info from them by email.

I guess I should be looking at Groups BUT the problem I have is that I can't figure out how to create a group for all members to go in to but DENY that group access to the forums.

Then I want to have another group where I can move users to once I have all required info and this group WILL have access to the forums.

Any help will be rewarded with a pork pie and packet of Pistachios.

Regards

You don't need the first part...just the latter. Create a group called "Forum Users", don't need to give it any permissions or anything. Then in each forum, edit Group Access to "Forum Users". When peole sign up, they won't be in that group until you manually add them. Dig?
