As designed  Forum statistics ignoring node permissions


Well-known member
I've made a total of 5 threads/5 posts. 2/2 of those are in private nodes. When logged out the forum statistics are still showing 5/5

There is some debate about this, but it was decided that on the average, that was a better approach. The number is cached and used to display to everyone (guests, full members, and admins alike).

If you think a different approach is better, please post in suggestions.
