We have a self-hosted Discourse running on the latest.
In the past, posts that were hidden due to multiple user flags or due to a Moderator agreeing with a user flag were still visible to users if they hit the “Show hidden content” button.
Now, however, it seems users can no longer do that. A hidden post is inaccessible.
- When did this change in behavior go in?
- Is there a setting we can use to control this behavior?
It is very important in our community that the content, though hidden, be accessible to those who want to see it.
i think this has been changed not long ago, and is no longer possible by regular users. by default only staff can view the posts hidden by flags now.
