Hello,

I found out that Google is indexing https://www.clubedohardware.com.br/forums/startTopic/

The problem is, this URL should be available for users without the proper permission (e.g., logged in users). We have anonymous post disabled in our community.

I checked and your website also has the same issue: https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/startTopic (try opening it in an anonymous tab to see).

I can partly solve this by adding a rule to robots.txt, however I believe this is a bug: IMO the software should thrown a permission denied error or ask the user to log in.

Cheers.

This depends on the settings of the community.  Some individuals allow posting from guests, or have it so that someone can START posting a topic, but be forced to complete the registration before the post actually appears.  

As a result, it would not be good to just “default block” that path.  🙂
