If I may be allowed to answer for Al, I think what he means is that in the
Random Bits from the Outside World section the "Other Stuff" is currently only accessible when one is logged in. In other words it behaves as though it was in the La Kiva secured area.

The "Newsworthy" section goes away as well when logged off.
This may be how you designed it to work but I thought only the La Kiva section worked that way. Al please jump in if that's not what you meant. :crossedfingers:

Ah, that makes it a bit more clear. It does appear to be set up that way. Whether that was done on purpose is something only Vista Grande can answer. The Newsworthy forum is currently blocking "regular members", so only Golden Eagles (and Moderators, etc) can view it. One guess as to why the Other Stuff change may have been done on purpose is to cut down on all the spider traffic.
