I recently invited another author to my messageboard; to create excitement for her, I set-up her forum in advance and called it "Top Secret." I made it private so that I could go in and play around with stuff (getting it right, etc.) ... and then, I figured when I was ready to reveal who she is, all I'd have to do is turn the private forum into a public one.
I had nothing but a bunch of symbols and letters when I opened the thread!
So my question is this: once you make a forum private, can it be reverted back to a public one?
(I solved my "problem" by quickly creating a new forum, choosing the template for the forum, and transferring the threads from the private to the new forum, but I'd like to avoid this in the future!)
