    I've got a client who needs forums setup, but wants different forums in different sections.  Eg, one 'forum' for each product.  The reason they have to be separate is because we're setting up roles so that each user can ONLY see the sections for the products they've purchased.

    I can create multiple forums, but the control doesn't appear to allow me to limit the viewing to a single 'Forum'.  Is this possible out of the box?

    Hi JAllen,

    You can create a single forum control which you can hide if the user does not belong to a given role. Please take a look at this post

    All the best,
