Anonymous users can only see categories after registering?


I’ve categories set up as my first item in the top menu

When an anonymous user visits the forums they can’t see the categories I’ve set up, they only can after registering

So how can I make them visible for anonymous users?

And I can’t seem to be able to delete the latest tab from the top menu, I think that’s a new bug?

You should set properly category security options, take a look at “everyone” permissions
In my example people can read and reply but not post new topic


That’s what I currently have but still it doesn’t show


changed category because I think it seems like a bug

Do you have login required enabled?


No, here’s a screenshot. And, here’s a link to the forums


I found out why they weren’t showing, it’s because the main categories had no topics in them.
Still can’t remove the latest tab from the top menu, it gives me an error.

Removing latest is not supported.


Thanks for responding, any chance of adding it?
I’m making the forums for an Arabic audience and trying to make the forums as simple as possible

No, there is no chance of adding that. You can hide it with CSS, but you are breaking core functionality.

I think there’s a regression there - that’s supposed to have a custom error message.
