Private Forums being displayed to guests in newsfeed | Forum

Mark Feb 20 '12
Ive set up a private forum and only the user roles listed can access it via the forums page, it does not show for guests for e.g.

however if i create a post in the private forum the content is displayed within the newsfeed to all users including guests, this means that they can read the content of the forum post as it displays an excerpt in the newsfeed activity, if they click it they get an access denied message but the newsfeed needs updating to support the private forums/groups feature

same goes for the latest forum posts widget, it display private content to you regardless of your user role.

Allowed to reproduced your report for the latest topics widget only, with 1.3.1

Would you provide us with screenshot of your private forum settings and newsfeed widget where you find an activity from private forum?
