How to tell surfer to register

Hi all,

PHPBB and this community rocks!

Just can't believe how cool everything is.

I've setup all my forums as Private [Hidden].

As I want only my clients who have paid for my services/products etc... to be able to access them.

I've got a reference to my forums on my web site.

i.e. When a current or potential client, who has NOT as yet been added to the appropriate user group, browses to my forums index, no forums are displayed.

Which is what I want.

I would like to have something on the forums index page to instruct the unregistered browser to go back to my web page to register.

Is there a way to do this that I have missed?

If not, any suggestions?

All the best to everyone,
Barry G. Sumpter

Never mind.

I must have been actually logged on at the time I was looking for the Register hyperlink.

Thanks anyway.
