Hi again,

we have a forum just for Admins in the phorum 3.8.4a. You have to be a groupmember to post and read there, even if you are logged in as a "normal" user you cannot get into this forums. That's fine.

But if you use the search (search.php) and you search for anything, you will get the results even when you are a normal user! Ok, if you click on these postings you won't get into the forum but even the first lines may be just too much.

That's what I did to the "special" forums:
- added a group
- let permissionlevel to 0 (but even changing it to 6 gives the same results in search)
- added my moderators to this group
- added modder's forum
- set login to "Login required"
- set permission to groups only
- let permission level to 0 but even changed to 1 and "groups and levels" didn't chage something.
- set allowed groups to my moderators.

I also have read docs/usage.txt but this is same as I thought.
So may this be a bug in search.php?

Sounds like a bug yeah.
I would recommend to switch over to phorum5. I know we have had it there and it was fixed.

Ok, but I have nearly 2000 Users and more than half a million postings.
Beside this, there was no possibility to switch the attachments, too.
That was the fact I still use phorum 3...

try it out. the current conversion scripts allow converting of attachments too.
as the data is copied (and not moved) you can try the conversion without any harm to your old forum.

Oh, great to know this. Then I will move in a month, when I finished my study.
