The 2.0.1 version should work on 2.0.2 :)

Just click "Advanced" in the Browse Packages screen, and enter "SMF 2.0.1", then click Save and install.

Try this:

In Themes/your_theme/BoardIndex.template.php, find:

<p>', comma_format($board['posts']), ' ', $board['is_redirect'] ? $txt['redirects'] : $txt['posts'], ' <br />
', $board['is_redirect'] ? '' : comma_format($board['topics']) . ' ' . $txt['board_topics'], '


Replace all of that with:

<p>', ($board['passwd'] && !$context['user']['is_admin'] ? '-' : comma_format($board['posts'])), ' ', $board['is_redirect'] ? $txt['redirects'] : $txt['posts'], ' <br />
', (($board['passwd'] && !$context['user']['is_admin']) ? '- ' . $txt['board_topics'] : ($board['is_redirect'] ? '' : comma_format($board['topics']) . ' ' . $txt['board_topics'])), '


Sadly, you'll have to do that in all themes :(

EDIT: Fixed a bug in which guests would get "1" displayed.

Oh of course, I should have said "If it's not in that theme, it's under  the default theme", my bad :-[

Glad it worked though :)

Nice mod, but how to resolve this error?
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '.unapproved_topics, b.unapproved_posts FROM smf_boards AS b LEFT JOIN smf' at line 6

: Hi there. Well I installed the Passwd Protect mod to my forum/site but I dont know how to use it, I was reading Installation Instructions for 2.0. And all I see are codes. But I dont know how to use them. Where am I suppose to put the code? In a post or something? I don't understand how to use these codes or what I'm suppose to do after the Psswd Protect package is installed in my site. D

Hi Mishqa,

You can set a password for a board at Admin > Forum > Boards > (the board you wish to set a password for) > Modify (on the right).
Now regular members have to fill in that password when entering the board :)

Okay I think I got it now, I can only provide one password to all?  is there a way to hide certain post from the members who have the password to protected board? See I have consultants on my site and the board that is protected is for members who need to communicate with my consultants in a confidential way? Is that possible for a member to creat a topic and hide it from the other users on the board? Did I explain myself?  :o

From what I've seen, yes.

No idea, you could use the Approving system to mark topics as unapproved and then hide them from the members.

And how do I do that?  :laugh:
First, go to Admin > Core Features > tick "Post Moderation" so the On switch is green. Save.

Go to Admin > Forum > Boards. Go to the board you have password protected. there should be a new switch that says something about approving topics, tick that.

Then, unapprove any topic in that board you don't want certain people to see.
