Should hidden groups show up in 'Recently Active Groups' if you are a member?

    On my website, I have a recently active groups widget on my homepage. For me (as Admin), I can see hidden groups in this and use it to access them. However, non-admins who are members of the hidden groups say they can only access them by going to their ‘My Groups’ page. I have yet to test this myself with a test account.

    Is this how it should be, or should hidden groups show up for them as well in the main list of groups and in the recently active groups widget?

    No, hidden groups should not be seen by regular members but can be seen by Site/Super Admin.

    Thanks. That means what is happening is correct then. A bit inconvenient that members of the group can only get to it by going to their ‘My Groups’ first or with the group URL.

    It would be good if hidden groups were shown in the normal lists to people who are members of them, but I suppose it isn’t set up like that for efficiency reasons.
