I see in the forums section, where you manage and give permissions how do I go about making it so that I am the only one to see such a section, would I set the permission to private, or to moderator, or to admin?
Under the Forums administration you want to assign permissions
Forum administration -> Forum Admin -> permissions ->
Select the forums and select simple mode, make it a private forum
Then goto Group Admin -> permissions Select the group you want to give permissions to and then the forum you want to assign the permissions to from there you can give that group rights to that particular forum
