Have a slight problem but not sure if its a problem or its only happening because my forum is still empty with no members (I'm still adding some finishing touches before I start inviting people to join up). For some reason my forum's Info Center (the part that appears at the bottom of the front page) appears different if I view it a a guest as opposed to if I view it as a member. I basically want all the same information to appear for everyone so that guests can view the info in detail as well as registered users. This is what it looks like at the moment (i.e guest v registered user):


"Users Online"
When viewing my forum as a guest I cannot see the different categories of user that populate my forum (i.e. admin, male, female, child... and so on). Yet if I log in as a member, these categories suddenly appear

Viewing the forum as a guest looks like this:

Users Online 1 Guest, 0 Users

Whereas viewing the site when logged in as a user ("MisterGreen") looks like this:

Users Online 0 Guests, 1 UserUsers active in past 15 minutes:
MisterGreen
[Administrator]  [Global Moderator]  [Male]  [Female]  [Child]  [O.A.P.]


"Users Logged In Today"
When viewing my forum as a guest the 'Users Logged In Today' part also appears to be stripped of valuable info

Viewing as a guest looks like this:
Users Logged In Today Total: 2

Viewing as a member looks like this:
Users Logged In Today Total: 2 (Visible: 2, Hidden: 0)
MisterGreen, MissBlue


So basically I want all guests to be able to view the exact same info in the Info Center as a registered member does. Is there a setting or something that can change this? Thanks in advance!

Sorry I tried copying the forum screen and adding as a screenshot to make it easier to understand but that seems to have created havoc with the formatting on here so I've had to type everything out


To summarize I want guests to view the exact same info in the Info Center as registered users see (ie the different categories of user, the usernames of the people who were online etc)


Thanks in advance!

Check under Admin -> Permissions
Then modify guests.
And give them the "View Who's Online" permission
