Enable "No Access" Forum Setting for Public
Hopefully this is a small change, but a useful one.
I would like to create a forum for private discussions among Board of Director members.
So as not to rub it in members' noses that there's a forum they are excluded from, I don't want it listed in the Forums List page.
So I restrict it to members of the Directors group.
Good: Members can't see it in the Forums list page.
Bad: Public visitors can see it. So can Members if they log out.
This thread http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308929-general-discussion-and-questions/suggestions/8825143-how-do-i-restrict-forum-access-to-members-only explains the reasoning behind disabling Public No Access. That's fine if you don't care about the public seeing the forum name.
But I do.
(More generally, why disable a setting because you think you know all the ways your customers will want to use your system?)

When I try to access the link above, I get "Sorry, you don't have access to this forum." Why?
