Re: Private forum


Hi SG Admin,

Being an administrator automatically gives you access to forums that regular members don't have. The forum you are referring to is private and hidden to regular members, but now you've gone and announced here that it exists. emoticon

Re: Hidden forum


It is hidden. I checked it two days ago before I responded here. As I said, you're only seeing it because you're an admin, and regular members can not see it.

Please create a test account, make it a regular member of the board (you'll need to change membership method to "invite only" so you can do this), and look at the board while logged in to the test account. In case you have trouble doing this, I took a screen shot of what regular members see, and will PM the link to you.

Re: Hidden forum


I received a PM from jenn about this with more information, and I think I know what's happening. For some reason, someone who has had access to that forum for a while has suddenly noticed it.

Please go into Security > Advanced Security > Fine tune mod/admin forum > See members, and remove anyone from that list who shouldn't have access to it.

Re:


i think there's still confusion. we know *we* can see these forums. what is happening is we're getting PM's from regular members who shouldn't be able to see these forums yet they are.

(and btw, i'm not certain the first post in this thread is correct. i don't think the other admin changed the setting by mistake. i really think it changed on its own.)

Re: Private forum


Hi Jenn,

Did you look at the member lists for those forums and see if these regular members are on those lists?

Re:


the person who could see it was Rhiannan. she is not on the mods list so fine tuning that forum doesn't help cuz i can't remove her if she's not on the list. emoticon

and the person who could see the pics forum is Tapir, and she is not on the list for that forum.

Re: Private forum


What is Rhiannan's screen name? There is no one with that name on our system.

Edit to add: Feel free to PM the screen name to me if she would rather you not post it here.

Re: Private forums


Also, you said in PM that you had the Pictures forum set to "use forum's memberlist" (I assume you meant "use board's memberlist") at one point. Are you sure Tapir can still see that forum, now that you've fixed the security settings?
