Thread: News module displaying hidden threads...

  1. #1

    Default News module displaying hidden threads...

    Hiya,

    I do not know why it is doing this but I have setup the news module to display threads from various forums..

    Several of which require permissions to view them, but the news module seems to be ignoring the permissions and is displaying both public and private news on the front page... to everyone even unregistered users.

    If a guest clicks on a news link, only then does it say enter your username/password.

    Any ideas why this is? the Apply Forum Permissions radio button is set to yes.

    Did you make sure that the 'Initialize Forum Permissions' option with the news module was enabled as well? And can you post a link to your site?

    I'm not really sure what else could cause that then. If you'd like to submit a support ticket via the Members' Area here though I'll be glad to take a look at things for you.

    For anyone else that may be having a problem with permissions in their news module, the download package here has just been updated to include a fix. Please download the files from here again, replace your modules/news.php file with the one from there, and that should take care of the issue.
