We have wpForo with private subforums and these permissions are set bij usergroups.

The Recent Posts widget - show topics of the private boards - even when you are not logged in.

There is no access to these topics but i would be nicer if non registered or logged out users don't see these topics at all.

Is there a workaround?

Hi @lantaarntje,

Please navigate to the Dashboard > Forums > Forum admin page edit the forum you need (the forum where the topics are located) and make sure you set "No Access" to the Guest usergroup and check again.

Hi Alivina,

The No Access is set on those boards

In Forum Access you can see that Only STA Members - private group has access to those forums.

In Logged Out you can see private topics are shown when you logged out.

In Deleted Forum Cache - you see the topics are not shown but mentioned as Anomynous posts - this is also not correct.


Hopefully this will help 🙂

Thanks in advance.

This is either, cache issue or permission configuration issue (edit the No Access and make sure all is disabled and edit all forums in the topic forum three and set all them No Access to other usergroup).
