In a whisper, you can hover over the eye icon and it will say:
this post is a private whisper only visible to moderators
Even if people are not and are visible to other non-staff users.
- Enable whispers and give access to a non-staff group.
- Make a whisper
- Hover the eye icon and look at the text
This isn’t true, at least not in my experience- whispered posts aren’t visible, even as a “hidden reply”, to users without access. I just tested it to make sure; a topic with one whispered reply shows no replies (it doesn’t even show the infobox that gets added with replies) to a non-moderator
You can now use
whispers allowed groups to make them available to more than just staff users, but @not-ethan has found a description that hasn’t been updated to match yet.
This commit should fix this. Now, the whisper tooltip is dynamically filled with the value of
whispers allowed groups (if configured).
