Forums viewable dispite permissions. - KuJoe - 2009-02-21

I have a 2 forums on www.zorums.com that I use for staff but after converting from vB 3.7 to MyBB 1.4 I noticed that these forums and the category they belong to are viewable by both members and guests dispite the permissions I set. The only way to make them non-viewable is to deselect "Active" and "Open" in the settings leaving them unusable by staff.

Because of the nature of the topics I cannot leave these forums viewable so if a support member wishes to troubleshoot please PM me and I will setup provide the necessary information for the Admin CP and database if needed.

When you set permissions, make sure "use group default" isn't checked.

Yup, still not working. Sad

I can take a look if you like.

Fixed. Feel free to close. The problem was that in the Configuration section the option "Forum Home Options" was selected "Yes" but when I selected "No" clicked save, and then selected "Yes" again and saved it the forums are now hidden. Smile
