Thanks for your reply.
I think it needs to be a secured ‘‘invite only’’ category looking at it now… We run a membership site for government employee’s, the discourse discussion boards are part of a wider membership portal that you need login details to access. To get those login details you need to be a government employee.
As per the image below, we have a bunch of categories that don’t need to have an invite-only rating and are open to all members… Finance, Procurement, and Diversity & Inclusion etc… we are just starting out with our discussion boards by the way
The one board that does need to be ‘invite-only’ is the National Security board… for obvious reasons.
So I what I need to know is if we can, first of all, have a locked board showing in the list of other boards that are available and then if access to that board can be invite-only to make sure we can close off the board to those not involved in National Security… if that makes sense?
Also, by locking the category am I right in thinking that any topic under that category would then be only accessible by those that have to invite only access?
Please let me know if you need any further details to make this clearer if it’s not already.
