My forum is private by invite only.
I see guests show up and one of them was viewing one of the forums.
There should be no guests at all, as it is private.
What am I not understanding here.

Thank you.

Could you provide your forums link for us to take a look?

It seems to be all correct.

My only thoughts are that one of your members logged out while viewing a thread and its shown them as guest viewing that thread.

Everything looks completely hidden though so what I've said above is only a theory.

OK--I didn't know that could happen.
So as it is, no non-member can get past the portal?

I have another quick question: Thank you in advance.
Can a regular member (non-admin/moderator) edit someone else's post?

That would be correct, all I can view is the logon page.

Unless they've been given moderation powers, they cannot edit anyone else's post other than their own.

Thank you very much--take care.

Please don't double/triple post. Your post need to be separated by 24 hours before bumping, replying or adding more information. Please use the edit button instead.

Since this thread appears to be solved...
