When a category setting restricts a user from creating a topic
and the category setting banner text is set to display a banner,
then the banner is displayed at the top of that category.
However, it also displays at the top of
/categories if the user moves immediately there from the restricted category.
Steps to replicate:
Create a category with security permissions restricting some set of users to “see”
Add text to the
Banner text when a user cannot create a topic in this categoryfield.
Save the category settings.
While logged in as a user who would be limited to read-only permissions for this category, browse to that category and view the banner.
Now navigate immediately to /categories. You can do this either via the navigation menu or, in the case of our configuration, by clicking our community icon to return “home”, since our site is set to display categories by default. The banner remains in place, giving the impression the message applies to all categories.
