AGE & GENDER BOARD FILTER MOD
By Eliana Tamerin (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=profile;u=30373) || Originally by Senkusha (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=profile;u=949)

This mod is written for 1.1.5. It may work on older versions (no guarantee), but it will not work on any 2.0 versions. An upgrade to 2.0 is not yet planned.

Warning
Installing any modification is a risk to your forum. Please backup BOTH your database (structure and data) and files before attempting to install. You have been warned.

Known Conflicts
Introduction
Restrict entrance into a specific board by profile-set age or gender. Users are restricted from editing their age and gender after it has been set (only admins can after that). Ages over 80 default to 0 for the purposes of this mod.

Also, please note that this mod will restrict guests from entering the boards you modify with the age/gender options. This also means that seach engines will not be able to access these boards.

How To Use This Mod
-Install the mod
-Navigate to Admin CP > Boards > (Board you wish to modify) "Modify"
-Enter minimum age and maximum age or select gender you wish to restrict
-Click "Modify"
-Users are now allowed into/restricted from the board you just modified based on their minimum age, maximum age or gender

-To require the gender and/or birthdate fields on the registration page:
--Navigate to Admin CP > Registration > Settings
--Check/uncheck the options at the bottom
--Save

Regarding Upgrades
When the mod version is upgraded, I will try to provide upgrade packages for earlier versions. However, because the number of supported versions may become overly strenuous, I will only guarantee upgrade scripts for the past two versions of the mod. I will keep the changelog accurate to make it easy to figure out whether you have a version within that timeframe or not. If an upgrade script is not available, you must uninstall the mod prior to installing the newest version. You may need to update each board's settings after doing this.

Notes
This is the first mod of Eliana Tamerin, taken over from another coder. Please keep that in mind as you request features or ask for support. However, feature requests/suggestions and support requests are always welcome. Patience is advised.

I need that modifications on my some sites . Thats taking time , doing it manual thank you for that. But i read your plans for 2.0 if it can be earlier it would be better.
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Eliana Tamerin on June 20, 2008, 12:53:38 PM
I basically just put that so I wouldn't get 200 people asking me for a 2.0 version or when it would be out. I'm sticking to what's there, but I won't say that a 2.0 version will never happen. It's just not planned at the moment (primarily because Beta4 is going to introduce a lot of bug fixes, and that means code fixes, so I'd just have to start over again).

Hello,

Looks interesting and I'm going to consult with my Admin Team about implementing it.  And if I understand correctly, guests won't be able to look at any boards with age restrictions because guests can't say how old they are, yes?

Very minor nit... the text string about setting the minimum age has the word "minimum" misspelt ;).

Thank you for making it available.

Cal
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Eliana Tamerin on June 21, 2008, 12:46:33 AM
Thanks for the interest, Cal.

To answer your question, guests will not be able to see any boards you set age or gender requirements on (because guests have no profile information so they can't set their age or gender). Nor will spiders, so if you're concerned about getting those forums indexed by search engines, then don't restrict them.

And thank you for pointing out the misspelling, I'll chalk it up for a fix for the next version.

is there an option to force the restrictions to apply to mods/admins also?
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Eliana Tamerin on June 21, 2008, 10:53:46 AM
Well, that sort of defeats the point of being an admin. Admins have "god" powers over the entire forum, so restricting them would contradict that.

I can probably put in an option for it, but why? You won't be able to see the specific boards there either, then, if you're an admin.

Nice mod and would be useful for my forum, but I'm getting this at the top:

Quote
// Start Age and Gender Filter Mod $txt['min_age_title'] = 'Minimum Age to View Board:'; $txt['min_age_desc'] = 'What is the mimiumn age for viewing access for this board?'; $txt['gender_title'] = 'Gender Restricted (only):'; $txt['gender_desc'] = 'Which gender is this board restricted to view / post?'; $txt['gender_block_disabled'] = 'Unrestricted'; $txt['gender_block_gender_set'] = 'Unknown Genders Only'; $txt['gender_block_girls'] = 'Male Only'; $txt['gender_block_boys'] = 'Female Only'; $txt['gender_block_gender_unset'] = 'Male and Female Only'; // End Age and Gender Filter Mod

What do I need to change to make this go away?

Your language file didn't edit properly. Open your /Themes/default/languages/modifications.english(whatever else it is, might be utf8 or british, etc).php and move the ?> to the bottom of the file. Save and reupload.

I have both male and female admins so not seeing it wouldn't be an issue.  However in my case I would like to make two boards.  One 'The Boy's Room' and one 'Girl's Only'.  They wouldn't be truely one sex or the other if admins could constantly peek in and see what the other sex was saying.  I want a place for each sex to be comfortable talking amoungst themselves without feeling like whatever they say could be seen by the other sex.
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Eliana Tamerin on June 21, 2008, 10:06:24 PM
Well, in Load.php, this is the code you'd have to edit:
Code: [Select]
if (!$user_info['is_admin'])
{
$user_info['query_see_board'] .= ' && b.MinAge <= ' . (int) $age;
// Add condition for Unrestricted Genders, then qualify based on 0 (Unset Gender), 1 (Males), 2 (Females), 3 (Boys OR Girls, no UNSET genders!)
$user_info['query_see_board'] .= ' && ((b.gender_sel = -1 || b.gender_sel = ' . $memberGenderType . ') || (b.gender_sel = 3 && ' . $memberGenderType . ' > 0))';
}

If the conditional is removed, then it applies to admins as well as members. Something like:

Code: [Select]
$user_info['query_see_board'] .= ' && b.MinAge <= ' . (int) $age;
// Add condition for Unrestricted Genders, then qualify based on 0 (Unset Gender), 1 (Males), 2 (Females), 3 (Boys OR Girls, no UNSET genders!)
$user_info['query_see_board'] .= ' && ((b.gender_sel = -1 || b.gender_sel = ' . $memberGenderType . ') || (b.gender_sel = 3 && ' . $memberGenderType . ' > 0))';

I'm currently working on version 1.1, which will fix a few bugs and include a new feature: "Maximum Age to enter board" (so now you can restrict to a certain agegroup).

Just working out the last few little bugs and kinks, especially with the install/upgrade/uninstallation. I don't want to force you guys to uninstall, because it does go a bit screwy, and I'm trying to figure out a resolution to that.

BTW, if you have uninstalled and your members can't see your forums, just modify them and save without changing any info. That should work.

Cool! ...  if I install this....  how would I do this? (in index.template.php)

...  if age is under 14 ...

don't echo ' <a href="here.html">some link</a>';

or, would there be a simpler way of me of just doing that?  :p

This seems like a VERY useful mod - and I am anxious to give it a try!

Thanks!

Thanks for using my mod, MaxiPes.

For 1.1, I'm adding in two more language strings:

Code: [Select]
$txt['min_age_zero'] = '(0 to disable)';
$txt['max_age_eighty'] = '(80 to disable)';

I'd love to include the Czech language, but I don't want it to be incomplete.

Thank you very much, Eliana.

I used this mod a "few versions ago" (lol), but it didn't worked with 1.1.5. Now it does!

That's a great find to "adult boards" and other stuff... lol

Excellent Mod

Just incase anyone asks, on my forum i had this scenario:

Boards disappeared to users.

This was rectified simply by editing each board and clicking modify to save it.

The board would then appear.

Everything works perfectly.

Installed on: www.voguefm.co.uk

A happy customer :)

Post by: Lady Night Owl on June 27, 2008, 12:26:43 PM
I love this mod, thank you Eliana!

One thing I would like to suggest for a future release is that the date of birth be required on the registration form (if possible), not just a check box that says "I am at least [##] years old".

Of course, I'm thinking that this would ideally tie into the user profile. For now, I've added a custom profile fields and forced this info to be entered.

Maybe that should be a separate mod... :-\

Post by: Kat9119 on July 01, 2008, 01:31:26 AM
I would love to install this as I would like an adult forum, however I have a few questions first, and I know that the coder isn't around, so I'll just post it and wait for an answer ;)

1 - Does this have it so that all members are forced to update their age? Meaning, as soon as I installed this, perhaps there could be a message that states a member cannot use the forum without updating their birthday? That way all members have to answer it. If not is there a way to do it?

2 - Does this restrict mods who are underage? I have two moderators who are under 18 that I wouldn't want to get into the adult area.


Of course, I'm thinking that this would ideally tie into the user profile. For now, I've added a custom profile fields and forced this info to be entered.

Maybe that should be a separate mod... :-\

Isn't there already a way to force a user to enter a birthday when registering? If not, how did you get this Age Mod to work with your Custom Field for age, so that the Age Mod reads the Age Field?
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: [SiNaN] on July 01, 2008, 05:02:21 AM
Have a good holiday Eliana. ;)

Let me try to give answer until Eliana is back.

1) Okay, let's force them.

Load.php

Find:

Code: [Select]
?>
Replace:

Code: [Select]
function checkAge()
{
global $ID_MEMBER, $context, $db_prefix;

if($context['user']['is_guest'])
return false;

$request = db_query("
SELECT birthdate
FROM {$db_prefix}members
WHERE ID_MEMBER = $ID_MEMBER
LIMIT 1", __FILE__, __LINE__);
list ($birthdate) = mysql_fetch_row($request);
mysql_free_result($request);

if((empty($birthdate) || $birthdate === '0001-01-01') && $context['current_action'] != 'profile' && $context['current_action'] != 'logout')
redirectexit('action=profile;u=' . $ID_MEMBER . ';sa=forumProfile');
elseif((empty($birthdate) || $birthdate === '0001-01-01') && $context['current_action'] == 'profile')
echo '<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold;">Please fill in your birtdate profile area.</span>';

}

?>

index.php

Find:

Code: [Select]
loadPermissions();
Replace:

Code: [Select]
loadPermissions();

// Did they select their age?
checkAge();

2) It restricts. Even if the user is a Global Moderator or the moderator of that board.

3) Let's force the users to enter their age while registering too.

Register.template.php

Find:

Code: [Select]
document.forms.creator.regSubmit.disabled = isEmptyText(document.forms.creator.user) || isEmptyText(document.forms.creator.email) || isEmptyText(document.forms.creator.passwrd1) || !document.forms.creator.regagree.checked;
Replace:

Code: [Select]
document.forms.creator.regSubmit.disabled = isEmptyText(document.forms.creator.user) || isEmptyText(document.forms.creator.email) || isEmptyText(document.forms.creator.passwrd1) || !document.forms.creator.regagree.checked || isEmptyText(document.forms.creator.bday1) || isEmptyText(document.forms.creator.bday2) || isEmptyText(document.forms.creator.bday3);
Find:

Code: [Select]
<input type="password" name="passwrd2" size="30" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" />
</td>
</tr>';

Replace:

Code: [Select]
<input type="password" name="passwrd2" size="30" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" />
</td>
</tr><tr>
<td width="40%">
<b>', $txt[563], ':</b>
<div class="smalltext">', $txt[566], ' - ', $txt[564], ' - ', $txt[565], '</div>
</td>
<td>
<input type="text" name="bday3" size="4" maxlength="4" value="" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" /> -
<input type="text" name="bday1" size="2" maxlength="2" value="" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" /> -
<input type="text" name="bday2" size="2" maxlength="2" value="" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" />
</td>
</tr>';

Register.php

Find:

Code: [Select]
loadLanguage('Login');
Replace:

Code: [Select]
loadLanguage('Login');
loadLanguage('Profile');
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Lady Night Owl on July 01, 2008, 01:24:54 PM
It works!!! Thank you SiNaN! You're brilliant! The only very very small glitch is the tab order - when you go to tab to the next field, it skips the birthday one altogether and goes right to CAPTCHA. Other than that, it's perfect.


Of course, I'm thinking that this would ideally tie into the user profile. For now, I've added a custom profile fields and forced this info to be entered.

Maybe that should be a separate mod... :-\

Isn't there already a way to force a user to enter a birthday when registering? If not, how did you get this Age Mod to work with your Custom Field for age, so that the Age Mod reads the Age Field?

As far as I know, you can only set the minimum age in the registration settings - but, it doesn't make a person enter their birthday, it only makes it so they have to check a box that says "I am at least {whatever age you specify} years old." If they don't check the box, their registration can be rejected.

This Age Mod doesn't work with the Custom Field mod as far as I know - what I did was create a custom text field requesting the date of birth, chose the option to make it a required field and set it so that only I (the admin) can view/edit it.

But, SiNaN has posted a fix for that so I deleted the custom field. Woo Hoo!
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: [SiNaN] on July 02, 2008, 03:08:27 AM
Ahh, sorry. Just forgot the tabindex. After you make the changes in the Register.template.php, do this:

Find:

Code: [Select]
<input type="password" name="passwrd2" size="30" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" />
</td>
</tr><tr>
<td width="40%">
<b>', $txt[563], ':</b>
<div class="smalltext">', $txt[566], ' - ', $txt[564], ' - ', $txt[565], '</div>
</td>
<td>
<input type="text" name="bday3" size="4" maxlength="4" value="" /> -
<input type="text" name="bday1" size="2" maxlength="2" value="" /> -
<input type="text" name="bday2" size="2" maxlength="2" value="" />
</td>
</tr>';

Replace:

Code: [Select]
<input type="password" name="passwrd2" size="30" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" />
</td>
</tr><tr>
<td width="40%">
<b>', $txt[563], ':</b>
<div class="smalltext">', $txt[566], ' - ', $txt[564], ' - ', $txt[565], '</div>
</td>
<td>
<input type="text" name="bday3" size="4" maxlength="4" value="" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" /> -
<input type="text" name="bday1" size="2" maxlength="2" value="" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" /> -
<input type="text" name="bday2" size="2" maxlength="2" value="" tabindex="', $context['tabindex']++, '" />
</td>
</tr>';

Fixed the message above too.

What about forcing the users to enter their age, have you tried that?

Post by: Eliana Tamerin on July 02, 2008, 02:03:36 PM
I caught a wifi signal so I'm posting to say that I fully intend to include a registration field on the next version of the mod. I've also got permission from JayBachatero to use his GenderonRegistration mod code in mine. So 1.2 should have both registration fields included. And SiNaN, if you'll let me, I'll include that code to remind people to update their gender and birthday fields when the mod is installed.

Post by: [SiNaN] on July 02, 2008, 02:10:11 PM
Of course Eliana. They are yours. ;) But you could make changes a bit cause I've -myself- found it annoying as you cannot do anything other then logging out until you define your birthday. :P

Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Eliana Tamerin on July 08, 2008, 04:55:10 PM
I've been spending my last two days trying to code this properly, and I decided that I wanted to eliminate the need for setting the birthdate altogether (to allow people to retain the ability to set their birthday but not their birthyear). So I'm working on that, which is why there's no release now.

However, version 1.2 will have registration fields for gender and birthdate (neither required, unless I can't figure out the code I'm trying to write). I would like it also to feature a one-time reminder for setting birthdate & gender, if I can write that properly. We'll see.

Planned changes for 1.2:

I'm a little confused about the next version.

Please correct me if I'm wrong:

You're saying that you're making it so that the birth date isn't required at registration?

I'm not too concerned about the gender either way, but the birth date is another story. I just think it would be easier if the birth date (at least) was required upon registration.

Perhaps the code can be written to allow the admin to turn off whether this is a required field or not (ideally, this would probably be in the registration settings)? That's just an idea though.

I've added this as a feature in the next version. You can turn on/off the requirement in Admin CP > Registration > Settings.

Still working on the reminder. The thing I'm struggling over is whether to make a variable in the session, so the user is reminded only once-per-login, or whether to make it a field in the member table, so the user is reminded only once ever and then never again.

Anybody have any suggestions? If not, I may wind up making some configuration settings for it, because I can't decide myself.
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Lady Night Owl on July 13, 2008, 12:43:10 PM
Phew! Thank you :D

I think you should go with making configuration settings for the reminder, that way the admins can decide and set it the way they want it according to their needs.
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Eliana Tamerin on July 13, 2008, 01:24:10 PM
I've decided to push back the reminder feature to 1.3. It'll take a lot of work, and I want to get this version out to you guys. Since I fixed the bug related to the unset birthdate, forcing users to set their birthdate isn't a huge priority anymore. I'll include the reminder feature in version 1.3 for sure, though.

So the complete list of changes in 1.2 is as follows:

The new version will be up as soon as I figure out one last change, how to update the 1.1.1 version to 1.2.0 to fix the bug. Should be up sometime today.

EDIT: AGBF version 1.2.0 has been released. Thank you all for your patience and continued use of the mod. An upgrade package has been made available for both versions 1.0.4 and 1.1.1. This will be the last version where an upgrade from 1.0.4 will be supported, so I will leave 1.2 available for quite a while now. Version 1.3 will only support upgrades from 1.1.1 and 1.2.0.

It's likely that you have another mod installed conflicting with the installation paths for my mod. Look at the instructions for modifying your file here: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?action=parse;mod=1260;attach=61142;smf_version=1.1.5

Try to use that to edit your Load.php. If you can't get it to work, attach your Load.php file to a post in here and I'll see what I can do.

It installs fine for me, but instead of including fields for the birthdate/gender on the registration form, it takes the user to their profile.

There is a sort of note at the top-right of the page once they are in their profile that reminds the user to fill in their birthday/gender, but most people just aren't going to look there.
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Eliana Tamerin on July 13, 2008, 05:41:43 PM
Can you describe that a little more? I installed it on a test forum, and it seems to show up just fine on the registration page. I attached a screenshot below of what it looks like to me.
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Lady Night Owl on July 13, 2008, 06:07:35 PM
I must have done something wrong somewhere...I simply don't have those fields for the birthdate/gender.

Please, see attached.

When I originally went to install it, I had to go back and remove the edits that I made to the register.php and register.template files (from when [SiNaN] helped me add the birthday field a few posts back).
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Eliana Tamerin on July 13, 2008, 06:11:06 PM
You still have SiNaN's trick on your Load.php and index.php files. Remove that, first of all.

As for the register page, it's possible it simply didn't get edited properly. Try using the parsed instructions (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?action=parse;mod=1260;attach=61142;smf_version=1.1.5) to manually edit the file. If it indeed is edited already, let me know, because that would indicate a serious problem with the mod.

Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Eliana Tamerin on July 13, 2008, 06:18:47 PM
Yeah, my upgrade script did not account for anything that SiNaN provided for codes. If you added his codes, you should remove them (especially on Reigster.template.php and Register.php), else you will get errors. Only clean installs of my mod is supported in the upgrade. Any tweaks should be reversed.
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Lady Night Owl on July 13, 2008, 07:05:30 PM
Got it! The problem was entirely in my register.template file. Mind you, I don't know exactly what that problem was, but I know that I ended up butchering the file ::) so I took a clean copy from a 1.1.5 install package since no other mod has made changes to it, then I entered everything from the parser and it's all good. All the right fields in the right places.

:D
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Eliana Tamerin on July 13, 2008, 07:14:22 PM
Glad you got it solved. Can't say what the issue was either, but since you got the issue resolved, I won't worry about it.

If anybody else has bugs to report, please let me know. Just remember that if you installed SiNaN's code, you'll need to reverse those changes before updating to 1.2.
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Lady Night Owl on July 13, 2008, 07:52:38 PM
Good grief. :( Now I can't click on 'register'. All the fields are there - no error messages in the log, I just can't click on the register button when I test it. I've got all the boxes checked and fields filled in.

Edit: This is also on a test forum with no other mods installed.
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Eliana Tamerin on July 13, 2008, 09:16:16 PM
Confirmed bug, thanks ladynightowl. I had hoped this was only on my forum.

It has to do this line in Register.template.php
Code: [Select]
|| isEmptyText(document.forms.creator.gender)
As for now, I will advise everybody to go to Admin CP > Registration > Settings and disable the option of "Require Gender on Registration?" That will allow registrations to continue until I find a solution to this bug.

EDIT: I used the wrong check statement. Let me go find the right one to use, then I'll zip up 1.2.1 with the fix.
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Lady Night Owl on July 13, 2008, 09:35:05 PM
You're welcome.

You might also be aware that this bug doesn't let the user change their own gender (whether the option to require them to enter it on registration is enabled or not). They are automatically 'female' - strange thing is that it shows in the forum profile info, but not the profile summary.

I guess I'll leave a note for any potential male members for now and tell them that this is not my idea of a joke. O:)

Admins can change it - I just checked - but that could get rather tedious on a busy forum.
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Eliana Tamerin on July 13, 2008, 09:39:38 PM
Thanks Lady Night Owl, I'll check that out. That's two bugs now.

Is this just for new registrants? Or does it happen when people who haven't yet set their gender set it (already registered)?
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod

I downloaded both your Load.php and ManageBoards.php files. Load.php has everything edited properly, but I added in the edits for your ManageBoards.php. You must have a mod like the Redirect Boards mod there, which is why one of the code pieces isn't present. For your file, this is what you will be looking for (although future upgrades should work fine without any further manual edits, since it just looks for the mod code, not the normal code):

Code: [Select]
$context['board'] = array(
'is_new' => true,
'id' => 0,
'name' => $txt['mboards_new_board_name'],
'description' => '',
'count_posts' => 1,
'theme' => 0,
'override_theme' => 0,
'category' => (int) $_REQUEST['cat'],
'no_children' => true,
'is_redirect' => 0,
'count_clicks' => 0,
'target' => '',
'url' => '',

Anyway, ManageBoards.php is attached with changes. Let me know if it still doesn't work.

Nice modification.

Great job, Eliana.

If you allow members to change their gender and age, doesn't that defeat the point of the restrictions? That's like asking a child how old he is, to which he responds, "Seven." If you then tell him, "Oh, well, if you were eight, you could have a piece of candy," are you going to believe him when he tells you he's eight now?

And I'm sorry for taking so long in fixing the bugs. Lady Night Owl, I'm unable to replicate the gender always being female bug you reported, can you show me which site you're using this on so I can test it myself? Have you tried it on a separate test site and found the same bug? And what browsers are your members using when they report this bug?

A link to the site is in my signature if it would help to test it that way. IIRC, this did the same thing on a test forum of mine. Only one member reported having a problem and I believe he was using IE or Firefox (can't say for certain).

From what I can see, the error only occurs only when I force new registrants to select their gender. Otherwise, there is no problem. I just did a test account now and chose male, which worked fine. I do not have the force gender on registration enabled right now since you advised us not to until this was fixed.

To enable users to change their gender and birthdate again, simply remove all edits from Profile.template.php.

Note: I do not recommend this, as this is creating a loophole in the functionality of the mod.

BTW, MaxiPes, what do you need it for, I'm curious?

Eliana helped me so much when I was a newbie here.

Hope this helps you Eliana;

Instead of this code in Register.template.php

Code: [Select]
isEmptyText(document.forms.creator.gender)
use this

Code: [Select]
document.forms.creator.gender[0].checked
The button will only be clickable when the first radio choice is not selected.

Or you can try this:

Code: [Select]
!document.forms.creator.gender[1].checked ||  !document.forms.creator.gender[2].checked
If the second or third radio button is not selected, the button will not be active.

hi,
i've got a blog and i'm having the exact opposite problem as all of you.  i want to age restrict against readers under 18 getting on the site.  i realize people can lie about their age, but i want to install it based just on the principle.  iv'e been looking everywhere, but it seems age restricting blogs isn't really something people are interested in doing. 
probably a stupid question, but would this plugin work on a wordpress blog?  if not, is there anything similar offered away from this site.  does anyone know someone who could write something for me?

thank you

ok have a slight issue with this mod (I am using SMF 1.1.5)

I created a testdummy user who was male.

He could not see the female only forum on the board index, but if I went to it manually then the forum was visable and I could post. Is there a file that did not get edited properly? or is some other setting conflicting?

Post by: [SiNaN] on August 06, 2008, 08:54:09 AM
I think doesn't have anything preventing users viewing the boards with the url. I can suggest this but, to Eliana:

You can add a new function in Load.php as canSeeBoard(). If there is $board variable defined, this function will work. It will get the board restrictions (age and gender) and check with the users. If it doesn't have permission then you know, fatal_error.

$context['user_see_query'] is just an index which helps in getting the list of the boards that user can see.

Post by: Bulakbol on August 09, 2008, 07:28:10 AM
If you configure a board for unknown gender, logged-in members with gender can not access the board but guests can. With my quick solution, guests can see the board but cannot enter. This will also reject entering a restricted board by url. It is not probably the best solution but works for me.
Sources/Load.php
Code: (find) [Select]
$username = $user_settings['memberName'];// get logged-in member gender id
Code: (add after) [Select]
$gender = $user_settings['gender'];
Code: (find) [Select]
$user_settings = array();// give guests gender id of -1
Code: (add after) [Select]
$gender = -1;
Code: (find) [Select]
'permissions' => array()

I think we should restrict on every page which has the $board variable defined. Just a small Load.php function should be doing the trick. Or the changes you gave should be made in Display, Post, Print and Wireless too.

Hi,

can't seem to get this to work whatsoever. I am ok with PHP and SMF. The files seemed to have been edited properly. I'm currently on version 1.1.7.

http://strictlyreading.co.uk/forums/ is the forum.

Whatever theme I choose (with dummy account), I can get into the prohibited board. I use the karma mod and I can posts that the karma came from. If one was from the prohibited area, I can get into there also.

Any chance that there is a way to restrict from within threads/posts also?

Thanks,

RG

We really needs that this works for SMF 2RC4 now. Because SMF 1.1.12 will become obsolete in the near future, once it is ready for version SMF 2 final.

Perhaps not many people use this mod on their forums, but in my case is vital because my forum is based on genres and ages. Without this mod my users can change the age and change their sex, that is why I have not upgraded to SMF 2RC4.

Description:

AGE & HIDE AGE BOARD FILTER MOD
Version 1.0

By The Wizard
Special Credit to dooie for wighting the Select Box Code

This Mod is a Spin off of the AGE & GENDER BOARD FILTER MOD
By Eliana Tamerin || Originally by Senkusha

This mod is written for 2.0.2. It may work on older versions (no guarantee), but it will not work on any 1.x versions.
Warning Installing any modification is a risk to your forum. Please backup BOTH your database (structure and data) and files before attempting to install. You have been warned.

Introduction:

Restrict entrance into a specific board by profile-set age. It also allows the user to hide their age from other users (This will not affect the Admins as the will be able to see the users age at all times.) It also hides all the users age's in the Calendar while still allowing everybody to know when their birthday is. A very handy feature if you run a kids/teens forum, or have a board with allot of females on it. Ages over 80 default to 0 for the purposes of this mod.

Also, please note that this mod will restrict guests from entering the boards you modify with the age options. This also means that search engines will not be able to access these boards.

How To Use This Mod

-Install the mod
-Navigate to Admin CP > Boards > (Board you wish to modify) "Modify"
-Enter minimum age and maximum age you wish to restrict
-Click "Modify"
-Users are now allowed into/restricted from the board you just modified based on their his minimum age, maximum age

-Hide Age form other users
-User Profile>Modify Profile>Forum Profile>
--Check/uncheck the option "Do not Show My Age" Under Birthdate
--Save

Regarding Installing and Upgrades of this Mod:

As I have said this is a Spin off of the Age & Gender Board Filter Mod so if you don't have this installed you will have to figure out how to create the required fields in your MySql database. I don't know much about Mysql. Also you will have to install the changes by hand as I don't know how to create a version for the package manager. If anyone knows how to do either please post the files. I know a few users would be greatfull.

Upgrades and Support:

I have no plans for a upgrade nor can I offer support. I am not a true programme. I am what you would call a reverse engineer. I take what people create, and figure out what works, or what needs to be changed, or tweaked. Feel free to make changes to my code and improve on my simple design. Just be nice and post your code so everybody can enjoy.

Does this work?

I have tested this design, and everything works on 2.0.2, but at this time I can't make the birthdate select box when you register a requirement. If you can make this happen please post the code for everybody yo use - thanks.

Gender Mod:

I did not need this feature for my board, and so to make things simpler I just removed the code while I was creating a 2.0.2 version. Also I could not figure out how to make some of the gender code work. If you can help out with this I know other users would be greatfull.

In short my spin off is not as elegant as other mods, but it gets the job done. I hope you all enjoy.

Attached is a text file that lists all the changes that need to be made.

Post by: Arantor on March 17, 2017, 01:51:10 PM
Even though you have a number of people pointing out why it's a bad feature (and why it's never been updated)?
Title: Re:Age & Gender Board Filtering MOD
Post by: DeveloperMcD on March 17, 2017, 03:55:43 PM
Yes, even with the limitations.

I run a message board of very conservative, religious people. The "women's forum" is more of a ladies-only bingo night than a women's locker room or slumber party. In other words, stuff men wouldn't want to hear or participate in. None of the male members on my forum would want his permanent account to be set to "female" so he could sneak in and hear how various housewives like to decorate their homes!

Also, my forum is rather small. We're talking about a few thousand members. It's harder to live a lie in a small town than a large city.

Long story short, I've had this feature on my site for a couple years, and "it works" for those in my niche. I've been working on migrating to SMF for a week now, and I got pretty much everything else set up. I seemed to remember there being a male/female board Mod, but I forgot that the (only) Mod was obsolete and ancient.
Title: Re:Age & Gender Board Filtering MOD
Post by: Arantor on March 17, 2017, 04:04:41 PM
The honest reality is that if you want that specific plugin, you'll probably have to pay someone, and it probably won't work properly, or build it yourself, or find some alternative.

I'd still suggest using groups and letting people opt into them rather than keying it to the gender field.
Title: Re:Age & Gender Board Filtering MOD
Post by: DeveloperMcD on March 17, 2017, 04:39:15 PM
Ok, I implemented something by hand which does MOST of what I need.

1. Most of this mod is the "manage boards" code, changes to profile, etc. and basically housekeeping for the new fields. I don't need this.
2. A bunch more of the code has to do with age and age ranges -- again, I don't need this.

I got it working so women see all boards (plus women's only) and men see all boards (plus men's only)
However, if I bookmark the men/women forum, and try to access it from the other gender, it is allowed.

I need to add this restriction, and then I should be good.

It’s also a really bad idea since 1) users can lie, 2) users can just change these things once they have added them and 3) what stops a user making another account to see the content they’re not supposed to see?

true, would need to find a way to make it so they can't adjust it after it's been set
and well if found that they had done so, then ban them :D
I'm trying to set up a religious forum and need some forums set for women only and some set for men only.

I mean I guess I could do as someone suggested and just create user group and set permissions that way but that's more of a hassle ;) having to go through and add each new member individually, would be nice to have something like this that is more automated
Title: Re: Age & Gender Board Filter Mod
Post by: Arantor on August 14, 2019, 01:52:42 AM
If it’s manual, it’s harder for people to lie about it. Mind you, I have to be honest in that I have never been very sympathetic to the entire concept of doing this for that reason.

And there's the fact admins can always see both and that someone might just pass information to the others... Which can end up killing the point entirely or just being drama fuel. I've seen this being done (manually) before and it still ended badly. You might want to define the content there with this in mind already. I suppose there might be some use to certain subjects that no one would want to know, particularly.

hahaha yeah, tmi but it would be mainly set for women to talk about womanly issues (monthly issues, body changes after birth, ect), stuff that men don't really want to read about and then to be fair a men's only forum for them to discuss manly ( :laugh: ) issues that women don't really want to read about... and so that they can ask honestly without fear of the other gender judging them or saying something, well rather stupid...

Ah, makes sense. That'd certainly fall into one of the "don't wanna hear about nor make drama about" zones. At least if your forum doesn't have immature members. Could always add a minimum post limit to cut off people registering just to see something, as well.

If it’s about that, make the boards opt in with joinable groups.

you got my hopes up for nothing  :laugh: searched for joinable groups but it's not updated for 2.0.15 either, I'll try to manually install it and see if it works, thank you for the suggestion :)

Why would a mod be updated when it’s literally a core feature? Go make a group, select that it is either freely joinable or that people have to request to join, use member then to restrict board access.

That doesn't do what I talked about - that just expands what the core does already to allow choosing on sign up (as opposed to joining groups after registration)
