Creating a hidden usergroup also hides forums to members of that usergroup. Forums visible only to that usergroup are affected.

To reproduce:
(Does not need to be in this order - only these conditions need to be met.)
  • create new usergroup
  • create a new forum
    • set permissions visible only to the new usergroup
  • add members to this new usergroup (check if new forum is visible to members)
  • set new usergroup to "hidden"
    • members of this new usergroup can no longer see the new forum  :thumbs:

Can anyone confirm this?

That is a bug. This should fix it:

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
