Solved Guest but how!

Post by richard liggins on March 16th 2011, 8:20 pm

As a Administrator of our forum whilst in the admin side I can see that on the odd occastion Guest are able to see what is in the forum (Somehow getting in without me activating them)..

I have to activate all who join our forum so how can this happen !!

Regards
Richie

It might says a guest is looking at something, but it does not really mean he/she seeing anything on the screen. Also a guest could be a member who does not want to appear in the Who on Online? legend.

If you are seeing a guest browsing your forum, it is most likely that you haven't set your permissions correctly. For each forum, I suggest that you uncheck "View the forum" and "Read the topics" in the permissions.

@ slg: if they do not want to appear in the "Who is Online ?" section then they will not appear as a guest, but rather as a hidden user. Wink

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

Important: You can also help the moderators to know if your topic/problem is solved by EDITING your first post and marking the topic as solved. Thank you.
