    I'm playing around with forums as we're going to be adding these to our Sitefinity site soon.  I've noticed for some reason when I am logged out of Sitefinity and I browse to the forum as a completely anonymous user I am still shown the "New Thread" link, and the "Reply" links.  Why is this?  Those features are locked down to authenticated users only.

    This is a major issue because the links don't even fail gracefully: the "New Thread" link points to some invalid URL which displays a 403 error, and the "Reply" links seem to redirect to the previous page.

    Hello Nick,

    This is the default behavior of our permissions. The best approach for you in this scenario is to redirect unauthenticated users to a custom login page. For information on how to do that, please click here.

    Additionally, if you do not approve of this option, you can configure a custom page redirect for the 403 status code as shown here.
