Solved Guests shouldn't be able to see the forum index!

Post by JulesofColorado January 28th 2018, 4:46 am

Hi. I have the settings set so guests should not be able to see anything besides the portal. However, it looks like they are viewing the forum index. I have posted a screenshot below of the special rights settings and also the users online and you can see it shows guests are viewing the forum index. It also shows Yahoo! I also have each forum set so guests cannot see anything besides the portal page. This is alarming to me that they are seeing our index. Can you explain why this is happening please?

Here are the screenshots:

Special Rights: Can you also please explain what it means where it says Warning: Level 'Guests' includes Guests, Members, Moderators and Administrators?

Here is a screenshot of the Who's online list. I have blacked out my members names and IP addresses.
