XF 2.2 Notice when clicking link in widget?


I have notices setup for Users that need to upgrade to use a forum. If they click on the forum Node they will get a Notice with a link to a post in a forum they can use where I have made a post explaining how to upgrade to use the forum they are trying to get into. See pic 1 is the node and pick 2 is the notice.

I have made a Widget that has links to 100's of tutorials in posts in the tutoials forum but when users click on a link in the Widget that takes them to the notice in Pic 3. They do not get the notice that is in Pic 2.

Is it possible to have the users see the notice in Pic 2 when they click on a link in a widget?

Thank you for your time.

Assuming you're linking to threads the users can't see, then no. We don't include any details about the forum a non-viewable thread might be in (that'd leak some information), so you wouldn't be able to match a thread to that forum.

At best, you'd need to adjust the widget so it just links to the forum itself for users without access to the threads. (There are a couple ways you could do this, but you could do a different widget for users without access with different content.)
