Could Admins toggle forums invisible?

Hi,

I know OCP is mainly aimed at medium and larger sized sites by default but as a smaller one we have noticed one thing here. We have put all the System Forums together into one category (Staff) and made it invisible to everyone but the admins.
We dont use the website comment forum and all those other system based ones and wonder if it is possible for the admin to somehow toggle visibility or turn these off alltogether. Of course in the preferences of those boards you cant make them invisible for the admin himself, but could this somehow be achieved?

I won't comment on the other features you have mentioned as it is always a personal choice, BUT, I've found the 'comments' forum an invaluable resource to the admin and to my users - a sort of 'one-stop-shop'. All visitors get to see the comments left on/in various parts of the website and it is entirely up to the user if he/she wishes to click on the link to view the original.

 ;)

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Greetings,

You can set permissions to the forums so that they aren't visible to all (but you of course).

Also you can simply set up a single forum to handle those things, and go through the configurations to have all comments and such direct to that single forum. You can also turn off some of the options in configuration, but may get random error messages in your email box about such and such resource not existing.

Like ocPortal? Want to thank Chris and gang somehow? Then help out in the chat room! It really needs your help! Just open it in a tab everytime you open your web browser, and when you hear a "ding", check it out!
