Flagged content can be shown


(Lapsax) #1

Flagged/hidden posts can still be viewed by quoting the post, and pressing “quote entire post”.


Invisible topics are not invisible
Flagged Contented that is Temporarily Hidden is still visible
Flagged Contented that is Temporarily Hidden is still visible

They can also been seen if javascript is turned off. (how a search bot would see the page)

@neil we should suppress flagged/hidden content from the JS-off results – and make sure that the quote load checks this as well for next week.

Ok, I’ll look into this case next week.

Linking to the hidden post will also display the full text, if the link is pasted on a new line.

I fixed the leaking of hidden posts in these scenarios:

  • crawlers and no-js
  • rss feed
  • when quoting a post
  • when replying as new topic
  • when viewing edit history

Remaining work is @TechnoBear’s case of pasting a link to a hidden post.
