Not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but this happened after upgrade to newest discourse version.
Before, users could set their featured topics to any topic, also to restricted categories.
Now, when trying to set a featured topic that’s in a restricted area (Eg members only), it will give the error “not permitted to view the requested resource”), and that topic can’t be saved as featured topic in the profile.
Well, the user setting the featured topic is permitted to view that resource… so they should be allowed to set it? and if anyone clicking in the profile tries to see that topic, I think then it should display that message if they aren’t permitted to view it?
So I wonder whether this is on purpose like this or it’s a bug?
