Hey guys,

 

We have recently been testing WPForo and it appears to be great, but despite checking over all of the settings and configuration (along with guidance from previous threads in this forum), our forums aren't able to be viewed unless you're logged in (the categories/forums do not display - only the forum title).

How can we resolve this so all categories, forums and posts are publicly visible, please?

Hi @walesupdates 👋

I'm just a user, not a mod/support, but you could try checking >

1) User Groups / Roles at:
mysite.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=wpforo-usergroups

2) Forum Accesses (click 'Standard Access') at:
mysite.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=wpforo-accesses

It is a bit complicated - hope that helps !

Hey,

Thank you for your reply - much appreciated!

 

It appears all those settings look fine as far as I can see - so the forum is then fine for logged in users, but if a user isn't logged in - no forums currently show

aah yes, OK - under Forum Accesses, click on: Read only access (This access is usually used for Guests usergroup)

@walesupdates ... oof, yes!

I'm out of my depth now, so we'll need to wait till the mods return after their New Year break. It's very likely to be something simple!

Good luck, and best wishes.
