In progress Guests view hidden forums

Post by Festina Lente on June 2nd 2012, 4:36 pm

Is it possible that guests can see hidden forums? In ACP I adjusted that some forums can view and write only members but sometimes in Who is online guests just watch the forums that I hid. How is it possible?

Perhaps they're not viewing it but they just visited the 'You do not have permission to view this forum' screen.

Links to you forum would be good and give me a name of a forum that you have that is hid and i will see if i can see it
as far as i know once its hid no one can see it unless your part of the forum.

As a guest I can't see the forum I hid, my friends also can't see it. But sometimes some guests just watching that forum when I look at the Who is online...

Then there is a bug as no one can see that unless there logged in i would not worry about it Wink

It says that but guests are not seeing anything but the log in page if that section is only viewable by members or staff.

Hi,

It is NOT bug, and is quite correct, they HAVE loaded that URL, but are denied permission to view it.
