Fixed help pages

Affected version
Overview / first page shows
  • smileys
  • bbcodes
  • cookies
but the pages itself also show
  • terms and rules
  • privacy
both link to /help/something, but call the startpage.

Is there a way to hide all of these pages or some for guests?

It is no big problem, while we can switch off the pages.
But if there is an option to show/not show these pages (in options, not in help page overview), it should work.

I can't say I understand what you're reporting. These links are only displayed if you have the options set to indicate that there is a privacy policy or terms pages. If you set either option to indicate that you don't have these, they won't appear in the help section.

What should i say. I have forbidden that things and they still where there. Not on the first, but the other pages.
Then i have deactivated them in help section, now they are gone. So i am happy.
With the next client and the next board, i will remember that and show my steps with pictures.

Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XF release (2.2.5).

Change log:
If a custom privacy policy or terms URL is selected but not provided, ensure that they are never shown as accessible help pages.
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.
