1. Even though guests are not allowed to view any boards in my forum, they can still access it via clicking the link "View the most recent posts on the forum. " at the bottom of the website. If they click on this link they could see all the posts in the forum, even though access to guests are disabled in various boards.

How to disable this link for guests? I dont want the guests to see the link "View the most recent posts on the forum. ".

2. Also how to disable the number of posts, topics and number of members for guests.

At the moment the guests are seeing the following
100 Posts in 57 Topics by 106 Members.

But you still want guests to see what boards there are etc.?

No, this cannot happen. If guests aren't allowed to see a certain board, no contents of it is displayed anywhere. Not on a standard install.
How did you excluded your guests from viewing some boards? By unchecking the memberbroup in the board modification page, or by using a MOD?

Taking out that box in index template is not all that tricky, but correctly configured permissions would be a nicer fix.

Completely unrelated.... Why would you want to lock down all boards? I'm curious what the use case for that is. I usually like to leave a few boards visible on my communities so that potential new joins can get a feel of the place and have an indicator that the community is actually active.

This should have come up in a  search:

Its a very simple fix if you are using a mod to view boards but not topics, or the hide contents bbcode.

However, you both seem to have missed margarett's point...   What the OP describes WILL NOT HAPPEN in SMF, unless the OP has alreayd manually screwed up something.

Post and thread titles are only displayed in the recent posts list if the user can see the board that the threads and pists are in. If the user can not access that board, then the titles do not show up in the recent posts.

Ya, That was my fault actually. The child boards were not inheriting the parents permission profile. They had guest access allowed eventhough the parent had not. So Thanks every one...

Marking solved then. Let us know if you have any other issues regarding this subject. :)

I didnt miss 'the' point. It was very clear that it was a fix for mods that ALLOW viewing of boards but not topics.

Obviously, the permissions were set incorrect or a mod is being used to view boards but not topics. There are only 2 cases right?
