Solved Closed to guests but guests still viewing?

Post by BravoSix November 7th 2020, 6:29 pm

So my forum is currently closed to guests. When you land on my forum page you're encouraged to register or log in. I just had a guest on the forum and when I look at my Admin CP it shows the guest viewing one of my forums, instead of viewing index page. I double checked my permissions and guests for that forum have been unchecked.

So how is this possible??

I do have it set correctly, which is why I'm puzzled that they're listed as browsing a forum they can't actually see.

It could be a member who has not logged in looking at that forum.  He/she could have bookmarked the forum.
