Hi,
I'm creating a forum for photography and I would like to enter into a section Only users of a particular group.
I created a group called "Private" and In the settings of the forum's section I selected the group "Private"
How do users request access to the group "Private"?
Thanks
Antonio

I don't have any advice about how you should run your forum so that your users can request access to your private categories. That's something you need to organise with the members of your site. Perhaps you could could create a sticky topic on one of the general categories with the subject "How to request access to the private categories" with a link to a feature on your site (a contact form or an email address, for example). That's what I would do if I was in your situation. Does this help?

Yes, thanks!
I think it's the only possibility even if I wanted to avoid manually assign users to the group :)
Thanks
