Closed forum but special links to access content?

(Non-technical User) #1

I would like to keep my forum closed to visitors (login or signup to see content). Yet I would like links which are shared by members outside to be visible to those who are clicking on them and coming in to the site. Other content would be hidden. Or is there a way for admin to generate special links to preview content in a closed forum for visitors?

Currently, no. This is not possible. If login is required to view a topic, there is no way to get around having to login.

The closest solution I can think of is having a category visible that does not require login, and unlist the topics there. Unlisted topics can only be accessed by staff, or with a direct link. You would need a solution for giving your regular members access to them though…
