    Did you know that without logging in you can browse the off topic subjects by clicking the archive link at the bottom of the Front Page.

    https://www.videohelp.com/forum/archive/

    Then just select the off topic forum

    https://www.videohelp.com/forum/archive/f6.html

    That's it. You can browse all you want.

    Maybe this is how those guests show up at times in OT like I once asked here

    You may have solved the mystery. But they can't post unless they log in. I suppose Baldrick could just remove that forum from the archive page. At least 'Closed topics' isn't there.

    Yeah, you don't want some of those things, especially some of the older and dirtier topics, showing up on a google search!

    Nope, it's static pages and doesn't submit any information to the forum database.

    Another thing that had surprised me was that, from the forum archive, when I clicked on the "original link" that the post had come from, it let me into the OT forum. Then I remembered that just before, I had already opened another browser window and had logged on so that is why it let me in. I then logged off and tried again and this time it asked for a login. I thought I found another hole but it was ok

    At least the OT will be blocked in the forum archive too.

    Ok Now I tried it again:

    I can still view all OT archived topics without logging in. I realise that this is not the forum itself but it does make OT viewable to all.

    Now , when I log on in 1 browser window and then in another browser window access the forum archive I can see OT topics but if I click on "Click here for the original forum topic." it asks me to log in even though I'm already logged in.

    I didn't think you were going to change this. I thought you meant that OT would be blocked from being opened in the forum archive.

    Did I get that wrong?

    As I put on my best Maxwell Smart imitation:

    Sorry about that chief

    We look for instant gratification don't we?

    Thanks
