Corin added a topic in Product FeedbackHide forumsHi there, I just noticed that the Show Forum permission when unticked completely hides the forum and its topics which defeats the purpose of the Read Topics permission.
I personally think this is a little silly as people (like me) may want to make a forum with hidden content that they would like to link to externally.
For instance a link to a thread that they have to read before proceeding to make a new thread in another hidden forum.
It sounds more complicated than it is but in the long run I think it makes more sense to have the Show Forum just hide the forum from the board index and stop users seeing the other threads in that forum rather than to block everything.
I hope this makes sense!
