set forum to public but members still can't see

  • Monica


    I’m having problems getting my forum members to see my forum and the latest posts. I had set the forum to private, but that turned out to force members to log in to see the forum (most of my members don’t have one).

    So I set the forum to public. The forum is now visible when I’m not logged in. But now I discovered NEW posts won’t show up unless I’m logged in! The same happened to a forum member who does have a WP login.

    The posts in question are set to public. The site can be found at here.

    Please, I’m looking for any solution that’s not time consuming (I’ve spent too much time trying to get this forum to work already) and I know next to nothing about code, so that wouldn’t be a viable option for me. I hope someone can come up with a solution that finally gets this forum going.

    Thank you.

    I did have a couple of issues with this myself, I turned off the following and it fixed the issue, but I do not know which one helped, sorry.

    W3 Total Cache
    Reset Permalinks

    I couldn’t see new posts with those two turned on for some reason.



    Thanks for the response.

    I don’t have any of those plugins you cited installed.

    I recently deactivated all my plugins to find a bug and removed the troublemaker. So I would be surprised if there was another that was causing problems.
