Solved Guests are still in our forum - after lockdown.

Post by Jaimee - ME on January 27th 2011, 9:35 pm

We have a question regarding guests being able to get on our forum. We are a closed, private forum with maximum security.

We have gone into categories/forums and updated all of the permissions and set them to "members" - which from the other threads I have read, should take care of our problem.

However, we are still noticing that sometimes there are anywhere between 1-3 guests visiting the forum, currently "viewing the index".

Security is of utmost concern on our forum. Could someone explain to us why we are still getting "guests" that we don't want?

Sometimes these are identified as bots, and we understand that they may periodically come visit us, but sometimes they are not bots, or at least not identified as bots.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best,
Jaimee

If you made everything viewable for members and up no guest can see but the login page. You don't need to worry.

If it show a guest viewing the index that does not mean that they see anything that they are not allowed to see. Have a member go to your site, do not log on, and see what they can see as a guest.

That's what we did and none of us were able to see a thing - we just couldn't understand why guests were able to view the index.

Thanks again!
