Visibilty of this forum

Should this forum be visible when not logged in to the forums (i.e. for Guests)? it isn't at present which feels wrong as it is linked from the public community blog.

Re: Visibilty of this forum

Good question Jelv. I think it should be available to all. Will look into that now.

Fixed.  A problem with inherited permissions from the parent category. Smiley

Re: Visibilty of this forum

Please excuse me asking,
I see that I am going to be migrated in less than four days time, Wed 12th
OK I use the forums, but dont very often go to the home page.  What happens to some one who uses e-mail regularly, but not the forum or rarely the home page.
I have had absolutely no notification of any change due to take place, is the migration meant to be transparent? 
Yours Worried

We're a bit behind with the schedule so it's unlikely you'll be migrated then TBH.

We're considering emailing everybody once they've been moved across. The change is pretty much transparent from a functional perspective. There's more detail in my blog post here if you haven't read it already.

It's the bit under “What does this mean for me?” that explains things.

I was migrated along with several others - and apart from being told by PN - I would never have noticed - if I hadn't looked at the email headers.
No problems at all.

Re: Visibilty of this forum

Do we still have a problem with permissions? It's important that *everybody* can see this forum. It's linked to in the notification email I'm sending to people Sad
