How to find forum url and change it

I have a forum. I want to make a category or forum, that my friends and I can go to. So, I need to make it so that it can't be seen on the main forum page which is easy. But, how do I know what the url of the hidden forum is and how can I change it to something easy like www.forumname.com/hidden instead of www.forumname.com/forumdisplay.php?f=27

thanks,
Ryan

In forum permissions, remove all permissions of this forum. Then, give access/reply rights in this forum only to "moderators" group (or create a new group based in the members groups if they are not moderators of your forum).

Them, set the forum as visible again. (only those in this additional group will see the forum, not guests/normal members).

is there any way I can change the url though and pick what I want at the end? So that I can give that to friends and just set up a password for it?

You may set a password to the forum if you prefer.

But if you really need a new url, you may create a newfolder, and place inside it a index.php:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Them your friends access it using yoursite.com/newfolder
