Solved "View posts since last visit" Problem

Post by pinkshades05 on August 16th 2010, 6:33 am

I have been wondering how certain members have been able to post in boards they don't have access to. I am running a Harry Potter forum and certain members of one house are posting in another house's common room. Then we finally got the answer: everyone can see all of the posts that are posted and post in them (regardless if they have access to that board or not) by clicking the "View posts since last visit" and sometimes, the "View unanswered posts." This is very frustrating because it definitely prevents certain boards from being private like they should be.

Is there any way to solve this issue? I've done a search and haven't found an answer yet to this particular problem.

Hi,

scratch
Is this occurring to just 1, or more users?
Could you please provide a URL to the specific forum?

Hi Darren,

This is occurring to everyone on the site. I have had friends check and have made a new account to check and so far, we can all view boards that we don't have access to (like the staff room).
Here is the URL: http://hogwartsportus.forummotion.com/forum.htm

Please check the Forum Permissions control if all members can view, read, and write to that forum... if it is.... then everyone can see all of the posts that are posted and post in them regardless if they have access to that board or not.

I just checked our permission for the staff room and only the staff member groups have any of the options checked (view, read, write, etc). And in the staff member group, there are only staff members. No one else has the permission to view, read, and write posts in the staff room except the staff groups.

Hello

Please check the presets...

And look for these two options:

* View the forum and its messages :
* Write topics or messages :

If members can view and write topics

Ok, I think that was the problem. My presets showed:

View the forum and its messages : [Blank]
Write topics or messages : Members

So I changed the members to a blank and checked it with a member account and looks like it solved the problem. Thank you!

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
