Support » Plugin: Private groups » Non-logged in users cannot view public forums

  • I am using your plugin to create several forums that can only be updated by logged in members. I have the posting access control working properly for my groups. The problem is with the settings that should allow non-logged-in users to view but not post in public forums.

    I have the following options set for the plugin:
    + Forum visibility – activated
    + Topic permissions – activated

    Folks who are not logged in get a login page rather than the ability to view but now post in forums with the “Only View Topics/Replies” option set. Visitors who are not logged in should be able to view the topics in the forums that have “Only View Topics/Replies” option set for non-logged-in-users. Can you please help me to solve this problem?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    ok, you only sent me a link to the main forums page.

    can you give me a link to a forum where ‘Folks who are not logged in get a login page rather than the ability to view’

    Hello Robin,

    Thank you for looking at this. The easiest way to see the problem is to do the following steps:

    1) Go to https://n1fd.org
    2) Drop down the FORUMS Menu and try to open the ‘GENERAL INFORMATION’ choice

    You should get a login prompt.

    so the forum general information

    is set to public
    has no private groups set against it

    yes ?

    Hello Robin,

    The General information is an Open Forum with “Public” visibility set. It has several private groups whose options are set to “Create/Edit Topics/Replies (and view all topics/replies). In addition, the non-logged-in users are set to “Only View Topics/Replies”.
