  • Members viewing Locked Forums??

    We have a forum that is supposed to be invisible to our members and that no members other than admin and super mods have access to, yet it keeps showing that regular members are viewing the forum. We sent a message to one of the people that it said was viewing it and she did not know what we were talking about. When you go to the whos online it shows that the members are searching the forums yet when you look at our admin forum that is locked it shows them there. Has anyone had this problem and how did they fix it? I tried deleting the forum and putting it back but that did nothing.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I suspect that they are getting the 'No Permissions' page. There should be an icon on Who's Online to indicate that.

      It's fairly easy to check what anyone, other than an Admin, could be viewing in any particular Forum.

      Simply create a new user, with whatever permissions you want to test, and then access your Forums and "see" what you are able to see.

        I know that they are not actually viewing the locked forum because i have asked a couple of them and I also created a test user to see if i could see the forums(which i couldn't)
        I also looked at what they were viewing in the who's online area and it said they were searching the forums.

        I just want to know if there is anyway that i can fix the who's viewing a thread/forum thing so that it doesn't show me people are viewing a thread when they actually aren't.

          In a word, no. It will show whatever is happening.

            I'm having a bit of an issue with the Who's online location. As an admin, I have all 3 location permissions set to yes in the Admin Usergroup, so I should be able to see where a User is. However, For...
