Private Forum posts showing for everyone in Latest Post section of footer statistic
Hi. I have a private forum for admins, which works great. Normal users don't see it when they're logged in. However, the recent replies widget (the one on the right of this page) does show the posts in those forums. How do I prevent those replies from showing up in the recent replies feed.
Thank you .
good pint, this is definitely widget bug. We're going to fix this asap.
We've tested this issue dozens of times and didn't found. It seems you do something wrong. You one make the parent forum (category) private but all child forums and subforums still allowed access for guests. Please edit all private forums one by one and make sure they all set "No Access" for the usergroups you want to restrict all accesses.
Ok, thank you, we'll check and fix this as well.
I'm getting this exact same fault, private forum post title is appearing in the "latest posts" section of the stats at the foot of the page.
My moderators forum (staff) has its post title listed in the "latest Posts" in the stats section at the foot of the page. This happens if its the latest post, this is not good.
I've checked and doubled checked all my settings they are correct. Also flushed caches.
For now I've had to disable the stats. Please advise as this is a show stopper for me.
And you are seeing this when you are logged out? Try viewing via incognito browser session just to be sure.
The widgets show content as per user so if you are logged in and have access to a forum it will show you that content.
Yes I was logged out.
Its nothing to do with widgets, the "recent posts" widget on the side bar thankfully is not listing moderator thread titles.
This is to do with the "latest post" info that's contained within the statistic module at the foot of the page.
I've tried with multiple browsers and sessions from multiple sources and accounts. I even logged in as a ordinary user under a test account and saw it for myself. The example attachment above showing the statics bar with moderator thread title in, was viewed as a guest!
It was not me who first spotted it, thankfully one of my ordinary members e-mailed to say was I aware ordinary members could see moderator thread titles? He said when he clicked on the link it took him to the post but stated he did not have access permission to view the thread content. At least that bit works, but I really don't want moderator threads titles being displayed in the statistics "Latest Posts" section.
As far as I can tell Its definitely a bug
Ah okay, sounds like a bug and more problematic than the widgets because you can remove those temporarily.
Hopefully a fix in the next release, which should be soon. It's been days away for a couple of weeks now.
If the stats are important to you, could you try custom CSS to not display the page element that generates the recent post in the footer?
Try this, it gets rid of that whole line but works until there is a fix:
Hi Sam, you're a star, that worked.
Its a shame it took out the whole line and not just the latest post part as its lost the latest user registration notification. As you say temporary fix until the dev's provide a bug-fix and I do hope they will.
the forum s/w really could do with a split topic tool, can't believe its not included, pretty fundamental requirement, but that's another topic I guess.
Once again thanks for your help.
