In progress forum permissions

Post by rimzie on January 26th 2012, 9:56 am

I have set my forum for "members" only but im still getting "guests" visiting? why is this?

www.yellowbadgesuburban.forumotion.co.uk

When people visit my forum, i have the option to log in or register? so I dont understand why guests are viewing?
Thanks

If you're sure your permissions are OK, it can be users that are not recognized by the forum, it happens sometimes...

if you are visiting a forum. . . and you are not logged in, you are considered a guest. . .

so maybe if they aren't really viewing your forum, they've just opened it. . it will show in there..

you can visit this

"YOURFORUMNAME".com/viewonline

to see what they are doing. . .

Very Happy

Guests are counted in the Who's Online area, but that does not mean they are exactly looking at anything you have that non-members can see.

When I visited your forum, all I saw was the log-in/register page.
