It is a mod for the User side of things, but obviously it needs to be managed in the Admin pages to create the subforums, and this mod allows you to create Categories and Boards that appear to the end user as a separate Forum, either via the URL or even the domain name, and these separate Forums can have their own Themes as well. However it all shares the same database as your original forum so usernames, passwords, profiles etc are all the same so there is less for you and the end users to manage.
Without this mod if you wanted to limit access to particular Boards based you could set up a membergroup and just give them access to the Board(s) required and then they would see the extra Board(s) as part of the main Forum page, however they would still see the rest of the Forum as it is with the same theme etc. Yes you can change the theme for a Board but that would be a bit abrupt in most cases.
With this mod you are essentially doing the same thing with the Membergroup and Board(s) regarding settng up the access but they get to see the Boards as a separate Forum, without all the other boards they might have access too and with a completely different theme if you wish. In the subForum they see the same stats, who is online, News, menu options etc. relative to the membergroup access they have, but with just the Boards you have chosen for them to see.
