Link to Mod

*****************************************************
 View Only Boards - Modification for SMF
 version 1.1
 © 2007, Rudolf Martincsek
*****************************************************
Make boards visible on the forum index based on member groups.
Does not affect anything else. The access permission is still valid.
There is a setting to allow the view of the board index (topic listing).
Members with no access to boards won't be able to enter the board or the topics - depending on the above setting.

In the package file you downloaded you'll find a readme.html file. Consult with that file for more information.

Have fun!

It installed clean and uninstalled clean so congratulations. :) I don't have any particular need for it but I had a few moments to spare so I figured I would take a peek at it.

I have installed since a few days and works fine without problem.

It's one of most important mods.

Thanks :)

Great mod, maybe I don't know how to set my wish:
I want to show the boards, the topics, but NOT the content of the topics.
Is this possible?

In Admin -> Features and Settings
after "Allow guests to browse the forum"
you'll find the setting Show the message index for "view only" boards

Thanks for the quick answer, exact what I am looking for, thumbs up!!!
Last question, where can I found the text:
The topic or board you are looking for appears to be either missing or off limits to you.
In the normal error language file I found this text, but after changing your mod will say the same...

I like to put a link in the text to pay to get access. Is this possible?

Errors.english.php

maybe you have a custom theme which overwrites the default. Or maybe another language ???
Or it could be the cache, in which case it should appear the new text after a time.

Problem:
checking: Show the message index for "view only" boards to on, will give the error:
The topic or board you are looking for appears to be either missing or off limits to you.
on all other boards, so no normal members can have access, even if I checked both boxes after the member in the board settings.
 ???

sorry, knows the answer: level 1 cache...

this is the exact same thing my mods get. What do I do? I am using the default theme multi colored 1.1.2.

Just check all in the second row to make the topics visible for the normal members.

I'm sorry if this sounds a little dumb but, what do I check in the 2nd row of what?

Hi Avidum,

Go to modify board, and in that setting, check off the left hand or 1st column boxes of those you want to be able to access or actually get into the board. In the right hand column of boxes, you can check the boxes of those you want to see the board listed in the board index on the main forum page, but they cannot get into the board to read or post or anything. They will get that error message.

Hi, Rudolf, could you tell me what the appropriate message would be? I've been getting the above message "Warning, the topic or board you are looking for..."

But when I would expect to. I don' t have a problem that the request to login or register is coming up. I just want to change the message a bit. I haven't been able to find where the above text is to edit it. I looked in the default theme language files, and found a similar text in login.english.php, but not the above quote, so the message can't be coming from there. I looked through a number of other files, couldn't find the text.

It's not my cache and it's not in errors.english.php. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by another language. I use only english in my forum, though I see other language files in the default folder. I couldn't see anything in the azure theme I am using to edit.

I do have a message on their forum, but wanted to make sure I asked you as well, as I don't know if the answer is to be found in the mod or the theme. Someone there said it might be the mod, but here you say it might be the theme.

Would appreciate any help in this! Love this mod! Thanks.

smf 1.1.1/tp 9.7/azure theme

Hi DreamSinger and thank you so much for replying. Please forgive the dumb questions that I ask, I am not an expert in this stuff. Just so I am understanding you correctly, do I go to the admin panel and then to the "boards". TIA

No questions are dumb - they're just questions! I'm learning too.

Yes, go to admin, then boards and then click the modify link for the board you want to work on.  :)

LOL I finally figured that out but when I click both the boxes for the guests for a certain board the board itself is eliminated from the main page. It's not viewable at all. I just want to make the boards and topics viewable to guests but not the posts. BTW thanks, I do appreciate the help. ;)
