Members receiving notification emails concerning sub-forums they don't have access to
On our forum, some sub-forums are restricted, and only administrators have access to them, other people have "no access" rights.
When these "no access" people want to manage their subscriptions, they don't see these restricted sub-forums in the list, and thus can't check them to receive emails from them.
Up to this point, everything is normal...
...BUT, when these people check every forums they can access to receive emails, they ALSO receive emails concerning the restricted sub-forums!
I checked the wpforo_subscribes table in the database, the records concerned have the "type" field filled with "forums-topics". Is that normal?
Thanks for your help!
Thank you for letting us know.
The issue will be fixed in the next version.
This is a serious issue for us, because unauthorized members can see private messages.
Do you intend to correct this soon?
I have same problem. Sofy answers on 15 November 2019; "Issue will be fixed in next version". I have installed wpForo Forum 1.7.0 on 03.02.2020 but issue is not solved. Please check, this is a serious problem for us.
Kind regards, Theo Duncker
Hi Martin, thanks for your comment. But I did set the permission for each category incl. sub forums. The Usergroup 1 with permission for only Forum 1 indeed sees only Forum 1 and don't have acces to other Forums. So far everything is ok. But when a member of Usergroup 1 subscribe to all new posts and topics he receive notifications also for restricted Forums.
Kind regards, Theo
