Not a bug Not able to access privacy policy and help on force log in.


Active member
Hi I've noticed a problem that I don't think should happen.

When the usergroup Unregistered / Unconfirmed has the 'General Permission - View' set to no they can view the terms of service but not other help pages or the privacy policy. It is very important that all users prior to registration are able to access this page and in my case the remaining help pages. The contact us page is also inaccessible.

I do not want to change the setting as it is a private members only forum, however, the I'd like to apply the same settings that the 'Terms and rules' page to the privacy page although I do not know what that is.

Please can you provide me with a temporary solution and update the privacy policy in the next release?

Kind regards,

Note that no privacy policy is offered by XenForo. You can create a page which is what I assume you've done, but then it will follow all the other standard permissions. That's expected.

As a workaround, you may want to take your privacy policy out of XenForo or put it with the terms itself.
