    Description

      If a course has Visible set to "Hide", then the link from the Navigation block to a user's forum posts will throw an error.

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Create a course with a forum activity (simple forum is fine).
      2. Enrol a student in the course
      3. Log in to the course as the student.
      4. As the student, post in the forum activity.
      5. Enrol a teacher in the course
      6. Log in as the teacher.
      7. Set the course's visibility to hidden (e.g. Course Settings->Visible->Hide). Save your changes.
      8. From the course's main page, in the Navigation block, under current course, click "Participants"
      9. From the participants page, click the student's name (to get to the student's course profile)
      10. In the Navigation block, under current course, under the student's name, expand Forum posts, and click "Posts"
      11. You will be presented with an error forum/notenrolled
        With debugging on, the error gives this information:

        forum/notenrolled

      13. Repeat steps 8, 9, and 10.
      14. Note that the teacher is able to view the student's posts.
