When the newest thread in the whole FTA area is in the private forum, the main forum index displays "Private Forum" in the newest-thread column. It happens all the time. I'm assuming it's because, unlike the Pub, nonsubscribers can't even see the thread index in the private forum.
Shouldnt be able to. The way I understand it is the only people who can see the thread titles from the main area (front page) are those authorized. Just like only moderators can see posts for the staff area on the front page
edit: I see what you mean now. I posted in the WUT area and went in under my non-staff account and noticed it said "Private Forum". So if the last post was in the private forum then it shows that for some reason and it shouldn't...We will get that changed.
