Solved How to restrict "regular" members to view Administrators' posts in their profiles?

Post by Poser on April 14th 2016, 10:34 am

disclaimer: sorry if this is deemed not fitting in this forum. admins may move it to the most appropriate board.

As I was creating my forum today, I made a forum which is only visible to the Admin. My purpose for that is to make privacy for the Admin whenever we discuss things about our members (in this case, I have a group of teachers as administrators in my forum and our members are our students). However, when I made a test account to see a regular members perspective, it seemed like the administrator's posts maybe invisible to their perspective, but when they go to (Name of Admin)>Statistics>Find All Messages posted by (Admin), everything can be seen explicitly. They can even go to the private board where the Admins posted the posts.

With that hopefully explained in detail, how do I restrict these regular members (in this case, my students) to access that in the Admin's profiles [(Name of Admin)>Statistics>Find All Messages posted by (Admin)] ?

P.S.
There are just some things that we need not to reveal to our students but discussed between teachers. I hope you understand.

Hello,

This sounds like an issue where you have 'can view the forum' unticked in the permissions, making it invisible in general, however, you probably left 'can read the topics' ticked and that is why they can read any topics within the section and even access the invisible forum this way as well.

If you untick 'Can read the topics' for members in the section permissions, this should solve your problem. Wink

Check the permissions for that section in the administration panel. Also make sure that you are in advanced permission mode. Click the link below the permission box sections.
