Well, i downloaded the 0.2 version. Wich version did you use? It works fine with me. All pretty and such, but any user can access the posts simply by clicking the options to view recent posts. So, or didn't install it correctly in my theme or there's a major security flaw in this mod.
I used the 0.2 version as well. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Download it here:
http://mkportal.thevnchannel.com/passwdBoard_0-2.zip [nofollow]

In Themes/[YOUR THEME]/languages/Modifications.english.php

add this to the end of the file:

$txt['passwdBoard1'] = "Password for this board";
$txt['passwdBoard2'] = "Leave blank for no password";
$txt['passwdBoard3'] = "Please enter the board password: ";
$txt['passwdBoard4'] = "Enter Board";
$txt['passwdBoard5'] = "This board is password protected and you have not provided the correct password during this session";
$txt['passwdBoard6'] = "Board Unlocked";


In Themes/[YOUR THEME]/BoardIndex.template.php

find:

// Show some basic information about the number of posts, etc.

add before:


if ( !$context['user']['is_admin'] && !$context['user']['is_mod'] && !isset($board['moderators'][$context['user']['id']]) && $board['passwd'] && !in_array($board['id'], $_SESSION['board_access']) )
echo '<br/>
', $txt['passwdBoard3'], '
<form style="display:inline" action="', $board['href'], '" method="post">
<input type="password" name="passwd" />
<input type="submit" value="', $txt['passwdBoard4'], '" />
</form>';
else if ( $board['passwd'] )
echo '<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/icons/quick_lock.gif" style="vertical-align:bottom" title="', $txt['passwdBoard6'], '" />';


Install the mod, and you should have the option to pasword protect boards.

However, don't forget to check that error i mentioned.

This mod needs a TOTAL UPDATE, I mean it should be able to do the following:

- Protect Child Board
- Work with current version of SMF

I know you can use member groups and such but that is just a HASSLE. So what if passwords are leaked THEY CAN BE CHANGED :D WOW.

Some ppl would LOVE this ability.

Jade Elizabeth

is this going to be made available for 1.1.3?
can we make mods non exempt so that only admin can access the boards without a password?
do the topics show up in the statistics and the recent posts??
