Fingers of Fury!

In looking at page views for recent threads, I thought they seemed REALLY high as we are a very small guild.  I went to a different computer where I wasn't logged in and had no cookies enabled and discovered to my shock that if someone clicks on the main forum header, they can see the recent activity AND click on those posts - even posts that are clearly in the Member Only area that we have set up.

So non-members are reading our private guild chat.  I was able to remove the option for recent activity on the home page, but not the forum page.

HELP!  How do I fix this?

If your private member only forums are showing up on your Recent Activity section when you are not logged in, you need to raise their security setting above Rank 1 (Public).

Recent Activity will not display any posts if the person viewing does not have the same rank or above what the forum is set at.

Anything set at Rank 1 will be seen by anyone, regardless of site membership.
