  • Private sub-forum and last post by problem

    I have a forum that has a private subforum. Users who do not have access to the private subforum are getting confused with the last post by info shown at my forum home page. If the last post by info is from the private subforum, that is the last post info shown even if the user can't see the private subforum.

    If you turn Access Masks on under Options they shouldn't even see the forum listed which would alleviate the problem.

      tube, this is how my forum looks like

      Forum1
      Forum2
      SubforumA
      Forum3
      SubForumB (private)

      Only subforumB is privat and hidden to regular members. But when looking at the main forum display which includes Forum3, the last post by date shown to ALL members is the one coming from SubForumB.

      Btw, access mask is turned on.

        Modify the viewing permissions of this forum:

        Admin CP -> User Groups and Permissions -> Modify Forums -> SubForumB ->

        ...then edit the file permissions of all groups you don't want to view that forum. Make sure you choose 'Use custom settings'.

          I don't think that would help...sounds like he's already done that.
