Solved "Closed" forum but lots of guests

Post by forthepot on January 25th 2014, 11:36 pm

Hello. I help run a community of about 35 users - we have a system whereby new registrations are not allowed (unless we know who is registering and allow them) - and no boards are open to non-members.

What is odd, though, is that we often show 10-20 guests, when they surely can't see anything except a login page. Could it be that they can see the forum and read posts?

They will only see the log-in boxes and a message that says, "You are not connected."

Fair enough, thanks. Odd that there would be that many people looking at nothing.

Since this thread appears to be solved, thread is moved to archives.
