But I have to second the standalone package idea. That sounds like it would open up very interesting possibilities.In reply to: No topics shown to forum participants
Chipping in to reinforce that this is not an isolated issue.
On my forum it happens intermittently with no real indication as to why, and goes on for what seems like several minutes. Its quite insidious.
A user of mine reported that it started right after he posted a topic, so the problem may be related to topic creation. For some reason, it smacks of a recount issue to me.
Well the odd thing is that, though the topic and the forum are public, because it has a parent forum that is private, the topic cannot be viewed without the proper privileges, even though it shows up in the index.
This might just be an oddity with my setup, I do not know.
Anyways, thanks for the help.
Ok, I’ve narrowed down the problem a little more.
The forum itself is not marked private, one of the forum’s parent forums is (in my case, a category).
The problem occurs when a forum’s topics show up in the index even when one of the forum’s parents is marked private.
Note that the topic remains inaccessible when you try to view it from the index (defeating the purpose of displaying it there at all).
So I’m guessing it is still bug, but one can easily work around it by changing all of the child forums of a private forum to private as well.
Just realized topics can be marked as private.
Sorry for being unclear.
I have a _forum_ marked as private but the private forum’s topics are still showing up in the topic index.
Note that the topics themselves are not marked as private (when they are, they are hidden from the topic index as expected).
When you try to access the topic, it cannot be viewed unless you can view private forums.
Looks like a hairy problem to fix properly…
