Indeed Smokey. I have come across many posts/topics here where the users were asking for such a thing.

This module works nicely within the forum. However, it does nothing to lock down post information revealed via RSS or SSI.

I suppose that doesn't make the tweak inherently unsafe, but that is very incomplete as a security feature. It should really be underlined in the module description to be sure administrators don't think their forum content will be safe.

doesnt say a thing on rss, just topics forum-side.

however, i might look into that, at the moment I am a bit busy.

if you would like to contribute to this mod, please stop by my site.  ;)

thank you for the imput.

if you wanted, for security sake, if you were to disable guest viewing by boards, you accomplish the same effect.

Thanks!

Post by: Grayside on March 22, 2009, 05:56:52 PM
I was fair brief above, but I will say that this functionality I've truly wanted for a couple years now, so I appreciate that you've posted it.

I probably won't have time to pursue it myself, but you never know.

Good thing I read thru the posts here  :D - I was going to tell you that your demo isnt working because I can see all the threads on your site..lol. You might wanna remove your demo link from your post so that people wont keep going to it thinking the demo will be there. :)

whats the difference between your mod and this one?

Post by: Smoky "Rider" Blue on March 26, 2009, 10:35:41 AM
my mod effects the entire site.. not boards you can pick and choose from, like my buddy Depreciated.  O:)

as for the demo, once i get things straight from the mods i inherited from Babjusi, the demo will be straightened back out..

personally, i did this as a favor for a friend and thought the mod could be usefull for someone wanting their site shown, but member viewing only.  ;)

Post by: divecall on May 08, 2009, 09:41:16 AM
Nice Mod.

But there is a Way, to enter the Forum anyway:
When a guest click on "View the most recent posts on the Forum", the Guest can see the last pages full with postings.

Exist a way to hide this ?
Title: Re: Do not enter
Post by: Smoky "Rider" Blue on May 08, 2009, 12:41:42 PM
if you want help with this mod, you will have to find it on my site. :)

Thanks man, this is exactly what I've been looking for.

But the problem is that I want only some specific topics not to be available not the whole thing.

Hi, seems to work fine with RC2 except if the user clicks on the recent topics from the info centre at the bottom and then it lets guests read the posts.

I have it on RC2 and the above doesnt happen to me :D

Have you tried the parser?

Can you explain in more detail please.

Errors on install etc.
Title: Re: Do not enter
Post by: simon36 on March 22, 2012, 04:56:09 PM
In /sources/recent.php add is_not_guest(); as the very last line to prevent guests reading the recent threads link at the bottom of the page.

Hello

Great mod !
But I have a problem :
My bots can't read topics...

I set bot as Members...
I don't want to set them as Moderator...

Can u help me please ?
Title: Re: Do not enter
Post by: Arantor on May 08, 2012, 12:13:00 PM
You cannot have a method whereby spiders can see topics but guests can't. Even if you did somehow manage it, you can get penalised by Google for hiding content from guests but showing it to search engines, as one tech Q&A site discovered a bit back when it tried to charge people for the solutions to things but the answer was visible if you viewed it with your user-agent set to Google.

How does one configure this mod.

To install I had to emulate to 1.18, then fix the errors, then installed.
However, it's done nothing.
Title: Re: Do not enter

Have a look at your forums error logs and see if there are any errors.

A mod for 1.1.x isn't going to work properly in 2.0...
Title: Re: Do not enter
Post by: TheListener on May 14, 2013, 11:33:13 PM
Quote
2.0 RC1

is on the compatible list but as the mods rather old I'd look elsewhere.

 :)
Title: Re: Do not enter
Post by: tMicky on May 14, 2013, 11:41:05 PM
You are right, I'm getting lots of errors with this mod.
I am looking for something similar for 2.04.
Title: Re: Do not enter
Post by: Arantor on May 14, 2013, 11:43:02 PM
You mean, you want to stop search engines visiting your posts? (Because search engines are treated as guests)
Title: Re: Do not enter
Post by: tMicky on May 14, 2013, 11:48:33 PM
I want guests to see the topics in the index, but not be able to read the actual content, without registration.
I don't have SEO or anything like that, so I am okay with spiders not indexing the site.
Title: Re: Do not enter

Good luck getting people to join if they can't see anything actually worthwhile.

@Old Fossil: That mod won't do what tMicky is asking for. That makes the board visible, not the list of topics.

Try This one (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=610)
Yes, this is what I wanted. However, because I have the "New Layout for Last Post Info" Mod installed, trying to manually install the mod, led to a template error and crashed the forum  :(

I tried this similar mod - "View/Enter Board Permissions" and it installed nicely, but the problem is guests can only see the index, they can't even click on category to see the threads within.

Title: Re: Do not enter
Post by: Kindred on September 18, 2014, 04:46:40 PM
really?   I would not expect it to be able to install cleanly nor work correctly given the many changes since RC1
Title: Re: Do not enter
Post by: Arantor on September 18, 2014, 05:01:37 PM
The 2.0 version doesn't seem to parse with 2.0 RC1 but if it's anything like the 1.1.8 version there's nothing theme related so yeah, it probably would work without changes.

If anyone wants to take over this mod.. will be happy to give permission.
Must be fluent with smf, and never charge a dime for it.

I am not active here, and I do miss my friends, RIP, Crip and Babjusi, Jade Bryan, and Ich, just to name a few.. Currently working too much, as usual and I probably will not respond to posts here..
But if you need to reach me, send a pm, and when I can catch back up I will.

If I have any other mods here, same applies.
I send lots of hugs and yes all is well. Life happens! :)
Too many projects and never enough down time. <3

Rock Lee, I appreciate your interest, but if you can not publish this mod on this site, I can not allow it.
I do hope you understand, but I want to have this mod available for everyone.
Thank you for the offer tho, and it is sad, your offer so far, is the only one I have gotten.

hmm..

Thank you for future ideas Kiriakos GR... :) Hopefully someone will cruise this thread and help out.

I am unable to carry it on..
I would appreciate it if someone can take this mod over, that can have it published here, and further the dev on it.. again, please only respond if you can fill the requirements.. a very special friend of mine helped me out with it.. and it is with that same spirit I am willing and hoping this mod will continue.

My English is not so good so I may not fully understand what are the rules or steps to follow in this site (I had some mod`s rejected, although I hope to send them back to see if I get them but it's not the case), There is a problem and I respect your decision. I will also try to continue helping with either code or translations and I hope someone will follow it, truly fulfilling your expectations!

I hope the big family here is all happy once again and back to coding!
I see some new things.. but a ton that need to be updated.. gee!



Just wanted to say I am very pleasantly surprised my mod still functions on 2.0.15


Not sure if I am hanging around this time.. but I did want to say hello if I happen to still have friends here..
Funny how life can get in the way a bit..
