Sorry to hear that, it sounds like you will need to restore your forum from backup
I would like to restrict guests so they cannot sign up to the forum without having a valid membership.
I have removed all the ticks from the guest privileges but I just tested it myself and I can still sign up and view everything as a guest.
How do I avoid this from happening please?

I guess the issue is that, I would like to stops guests from being able to sign up and access the forum content.
How would that be possible please?
Or maybe set the forum up so no-one can get access without admin approval.
You can disable registration and remove privileges from guests in the ACP
@PitaJ Thanks. Removing privileges didn't seem to do much as I tried signing up as guest and could still access everything.
If I change registration to "admin approval" does that mean that no one can sign up and access the forum content before they have been approved?
@Rasmus Can you send us a screenshot of the privilege table for a category of your choosing? Removing the viewing privileges from guests will cause the category to no longer show up on the index (nor will it be accessible).
Untick these three:
Did you do that for every category?
@PitaJ Yes I have removed all guest privileges.
