Forum has Changed?

mmpol
Recently, the forum that I use has changed. It is no longer searchable without logging in - and the searches now only reach back through the year. Has something happened with Nabble's policy?

What is the forum URL?
Can you please take a print screen from the forum so that we can check it?

Nothing has been changed in our policy, for now.
In the screen shot that you sent to us, there is someone logged in and the name is "harry kendall thaw" and the search field is visible. Is that correct?
Do you have a screen shot when no one is logged in?

This post was updated on .
Do you remember if it was something like the screen shot  below?
See that in this forum nobody is logged in.

When logged in, I am identified as being logged in.
It seems that all of the past posts have inadvertently been marked "private", though you can still access them manually, if you access specific users and look at their posting history.
You are no longer able to easily search the majority of the archive, though.

Leaving aside the search issue...

Reporting that when logged out all you see if a login screen and when logged in everything is marked "Private" indicates that the "View" permission has been withdrawn from those in the "Anyone" group and that you need membership of further groups to see the material.

How does one get out of the "anyone" group?

You can't!
Once someone has entered an email address into a Nabble forum it stays in the record.

Similarly, a Forum Administrator has no way of removing anyone from the "Registered" group.

Both supplying an email address and then confirming a user controls that address (which lifts a user into the "Registered" group) are entirely in the hands of the user and not controllable by a forum Administrator.

In exceptional circumstances I have seen Nabble staff remove a user from a forum, but normally there is no reason to do that.
