All the topics in the 'Newest Forum Topics' block on the frontpage link to threads that are unauthorised for me to access, since I'm no modorator - I'm thinking this looks a bit shabby for new users who try and use this block to read new content.

I'm looking into it. It's been annoying me too, but since we haven't had much restricted topics I didn't hurry with it...

I'm on it!

Probably, but that would require the module to be modified directly. I'll first check for upgrades on the module which might have fixed these known issues.

I checked for the new version of xtracker module and there isn't one yet. So as a temporary solution I've modified the query in a module directly. It's a rather dirty hack, but it works and I hope the new version will resolve the issue so I can just overwrite this with it and be done. Smiling

Thanks
