Can you make password-protected boards? that way you don't need to make special permissions or membergroups to have members not be able to access a certain board?

Well you don't need a password-protected board option. Do what i do. Create a group with permission to that board and take out the permissions of the board who don't want to let them in.

You can't add them. Not sure what really is the point since you have membergroups.

It's probably only available on privately hosted copies of SMF.

Every mod is pretty much available for just privately hosted copies of SMF. That's why it's so hard to get mods on this version. They actually have to be modified to work with our forums.

It's not just the simple process you can use on other forums. That's why you have to consider what mods are really important and worthwhile to suggest. It takes time.
