    We're using forums for a pseudo job board. When we mark a thread as "Hidden" it's still showing up on the public site. Is there some permission or setting that we're overlooking? I thought there might be a filter in one of the forum controls, but can't find anything.

    Thanks again for your great support!

    Hi Chip Gallent,

    I marked a thread as "Hidden" from the backend - Forums module. Then accessed a page, where I have Forums control and the thread was not visible. Once I set the thread as visible it appears on the page. I was using latest official release 3.7 SP2

    Could you try to reproduce this behavior on our demo website - demo.sitefinity.com

    Sincerely yours,

    We're still having this same problem. Here's a test link to a page with a forum thread marked as hidden:

    http://chamberweb.atiba.com/Homepage/WorkNashville/JobBoard/JobForum.aspx?mode=singleForum&forum=6feafea9-b727-4b04-a2ce-c4c83c65774e

    Is there a setting in any of the forum controls that we might be overlooking?

    Thanks again!

    Hi Chip Gallent,

    Hidden status of the thread is set from the backend.  Also the hidden applies to the thread, not to a post. You can hide the thread. The live link does not help us. If possible give us backend credentials to the website. 

    All the best,

    Hi Chip Gallent,

    Please open a bug report and give as backend credentials to your website. Also send us the modifications you have made to the forums control. Then we will get back to you in the forum thread.

    Kind regards,

    Ivan - I just checked and saw you replied to this, but my trial account has lapsed and the account for the license is in our customers name. They're still having the problem with hidden threads.

    Thanks.

    Hi Chip Gallent,

    Could you set up a sample project where you can reproduce this problem and send it to us. You can provide an external link from where we could download the project and its database and we will set it up locally.
