Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.

Archived category still visible and users able to post [3.0.1]

As per the title, I'm trying to archive a couple of categories and as I understand it per the docs, it should hide them from the main categories list and nobody should be able to post

Archived- This removes the category from the main index and prevents threads in the category from coming up in the site-based search. Archived Categories are still indexed by search engines and can prevent broken links.

I have selected that option as well as 'Hide from the recent discussions page' and it seems to not work. The categories are still displayed on the main home page and people can still post, tested with a regular user test account.

What could be the problem? Have I misunderstood "Removes the category from the main index"?

Thanks!
