Public vs Private Board

Recommended Posts

Please bear with me. I just had my ancient Ikonboard BB migrated/converted to IOS Board....and am learning the AdminCP functions. 

My old board was mainly a Public Board with a few Private Forums. As such, Guests or Visitors could visit the Board, and immediately look around at Forums that allowed them Permissions to Read.  It served as a good marketing tool, since if they liked what they saw they could register. Also Members who chose not to be "remembered" on Sign In could visit the site and act as Guests until they chose to Sign In.

What settings do I need to set so my new IPS Board is viewable by Guests and Members that arent logged in, without the Log In screen automatically showing up upon accessing the board? Assuming this can be accomplished, I assume there would be a smaller Register or sign in link available?

Thanks

You must allow the Guest Group to access the site.

Edit that Group, find " Can access site? ", and enable it, then save the Group.

That will allow Guests to view whatever parts of the site are open to them via the other various app settings.
