So I am a complete newbie with regards to running a forum. I am looking at running a small forum around 200 members if lucky. Can design and get it filled up pre-launch? If so how.

Thanks for your help

Most forum softwares allow you to close your forums only allowing admins to view them. You can add content prior to launching.

You can even use .htaccess that way nobody even sees what you are doing only people with login and password would be able to see anything.

I’ve previously thrown a ‘coming soon’ index.htm file on the root to cover it up and divert to a Twitter or similar page.
