Private requests in Google Analytics

I'm trying to wrap my head around this oddity. Seeing if anyone here can shed light on this.

Our Community is private and requires members to login to our application in order to access it. In Google Analytics, this typically shows up with the following page:

[our community]/private/requested?=[page they are trying to access]/&type=community

However, I am also seeing several page views requesting this page:

[our community]/private/requested?=[our community]/topics/search/show&type=community

The portion in bold is uniform across all GetSat communities and shows all posts. My question is this: how can someone access the page to view all posts if they've yet to actually access the Community, which is private until they log in?

Any help in clearing up this question would be appreciated. Thanks as always.

Nm, I found it! If you reach the page to sign into our Community, the search box in community header is visible. From here the member attempts to do a blank search, which prompts the above page. Wanted to share my findings. Thanks all!
