Question Private category viewing ??

Is it possible to have a category (public viewing) that has a forum category that the public can see (just the category header/decription) But have the actual posts only viewable to a special group (I.e. authors)?

I want to create a forum category/sub category that works like an advert for joining - such as "active members only" but when a non member clicks they get told they cannot see so they should join up before being able to view any of the post..

I can achieve this by making the category only viewable by registered members (and the posts only viewable to a "special group") but this hides the category title and description as well from public view - I need the public to see the category title and the sub text "ala - join if you want to see what's here" to prompt them to join because there something they cannot see.

Cheers!

If you create a public category, than you can use the option "Hide Replies For Guests" in the Configuration -> Security. Guests see only the first message of a topic. When enabled, users must be login before reading the answers.
