    I hear what you're saying and there may be something in that but my point is that, although working in an agency is a great learning curve its not necessarily for everyone. There are some fantastic designers...

    It looks like several different photos (or different parts of the same photo) just rotated and cropped and then stacked on top of each other.

    Reply to Setup for 4 panel DL flyer/brochure
    Honestly, I wouldn't worry about the panels being a different size. True, they will need to be, but the size difference is very small. If you use decent margins, you will be fine doing them all the same...

    Is this a gate fold, an accordion fold, a roll fold, etc.? Depending on how it's folded, each of the panels will need to be sized just a bit differently from the next.

  • Restricting Forum Access

    Does anyone know if it is possible to restrict forum access to a specific group of people or company?

    I have a client who wants members of staff to contribute to a company wide forum but doesn't want the public to have access. They also want it to be cheap i.e. free!!

    My feeling is that this would only be possible through the company's intranet which is restricted anyway.

    Comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Jam, this probably isn't what you're asking for, but there's an app called Yammer that's kind of a Twitter for companies. In order to sign up you have to have a common e-mail, like or you can't get in. A few dozen of us have been testing it at my work. Like Twitter, you can see the entire stream, or just people you're following, but you also can set up private groups. For example, I have one set up for just our department, and it's invitation only.

      Most of the mainstream forum packages (phpBB, vBulletin etc) allow you to restrict access, including read access, to registered users only.

        Standard forums all have restriction abilities.

            That's not for you, it's for the rest of us.

              There is nothing special about this and definitely doesn't require an intranet. Use phpBB. Create a group for your users and allow all forums to only be seen by that group. If anyone outside visits the board they will see a mostly blank page. Nearly any forum software can do this; e.g. this board probably has an administrator forum that you cannot see.
