Topic: is it possible?

Hi all although I have registered some time ago, I did not have the chance to experiment with punBB yet so I concider myself new in this forum and software.
A very simple question.
Is it possible to have an invited members only forum with punBB?

This mod adds the capability to send invitations, it doesn't restrict to invitation-only by itself.

However, I know that motis did it for his board, maybe you ask him or maybe he will share his extensions here.
I have an idea how it was done but not the complete picture.

well there is a way to do it with just invitations mod.
simply make a new user group and restrict the forum you want to that user group.
and have the invitations mod install aswell.

This still does not solve the "invited only"-issue

The absolute easiest way is write some code into register.php that prevents user from registering who have no vaild invitation.

Motis has done it. Ask him wink

You could also turn off registrations and then create the users you want through the user administration plugin (it's on the downloads page).
