DelphiPlus Hosts can set folders so that only some members have access. Look in Controls, Content and Roles, Manage Folders. Edit specific folders and set Read Access to Some Members

After that  click on a member's name to open the Profile, or find the name in Set Privileges. When looking at Set Privileges of a member it will list the limited access folders to check off for access. Make sure that's set for yourself as well. 

When making changes in folders it may take logging out, closing browser, before coming back to see changes.

let us know how it goes ...

Hi Gunter,

Thanks for helping me with this. I'm not sure if I did it right or not? Here's the link to my forum.

I see two folders set to Some Members, and you have access to those.  No one else has access so far?

Thanks Kid and no worries. Just re-acclimating myself here again. Just started my forum a few days ago. It's great to see you again as well!

I'm a DelphiPlus member and a moderator for a new forum.  I tried setting up a Staff folder (private) for me and the host, however one of the posters said they can see the folder and can post in it.  What is wrong with the set up and how do I make it private for only two of us?  Thanks

Members logged in when you made the change may not see the difference until after a logout or after clearing their browsing history.

It's best not to use limited access folders like this for a day or so for sensitive posts.

If the forum allows guests you can always visit without logging in to see what others see, or use another account to check as well. Another browser comes in handy for this.

I can check more if you post a link to the forum.
