I`m only glad to help.

Look at the 3 last sentences in my previous post. That is incorrect, regular members can`t view the boards. Check both boxes for all the other groups you want to let inside aswell as the guests (of course, my mistake! Sorry..)  I only recently discovered it myself.

LOL no problem. Just this morning I received an email from one of my mods saying she could not get into the site. I don't know what I did wrong. I think I messed things up, this is why I think I need to restart everything just as if I am starting the board. Somewhere along the line I got messed up with this. I really appreciate your help though Iron IC. I probably sound like an idiotic not getting this stuff. lol

Give a link to your forum and PM me with the username and password of a temporary admin account.
I will update all my mods in the next few weeks. Thanks for your patience.

Well I am having more problems now even though Rudolf helped me so much. For some reason my mods can't view certain boards or even post in the ones they should be allowed to. I don't know what the heck I am doing or not doing. My mod also tells me all her pm's are gone plus the only board she can view is the admin/mod discussion board. Any suggestions?

Have you enabled it at Features and Options? If so, uncheck the box there, and se if it gets better

Thank you all for your help. Rudolf was kind enough to correct my idiotic mistakes. lol Now the board is running the way it should. I have another question to ask though so bear with me please, I have changed the rankings in the membergroups, and now want to make it so that certain membergroups can only view certain boards. Where do I do the changing of this and how do I do it without making another mess of my board, lol. Thanks!

At your admin''s panel in your forum, go to Boards and click Modify at the end. There you should have all the membergroups, at access and visibility uncheck the boxex for all the other membergropups but the membergruop that you want to give access, that you don''t unchechk the box, and click save at the end after you are done. That should take care of it. Hope this helps

When you say to go to boards and click Modify at the end, are you referring to the board that I want only certain membergroups to view?

After you go to the boards in the admin'' panel, then you can choose that specified board that you want only certain membergroups to view. In short yeas, that''s what I meant

I have tried the mod, and it works as expected :-)

There is one issue. I noticed new errors generated in the error log when i create a new board.
Code: [Select]
http://localhost/v2/forum/index.php?action=manageboards;sa=newboard;cat=1
8: Undefined index: memberGroupsView
File: C:\xampplite\htdocs\v2\forum\Sources\ManageBoards.php
Line: 474

and

Code: [Select]
http://localhost/v2/forum/index.php?action=manageboards;sa=newboard;cat=1
2: in_array() [<a href='function.in-array'>function.in-array</a>]: Wrong datatype for second argument
File: C:\xampplite\htdocs\v2\forum\Sources\ManageBoards.php
Line: 474

at ManageBoards.php:
Code: [Select]
$context['groups'][(int) $row['ID_GROUP']] = array(
'id' => $row['ID_GROUP'],
'name' => trim($row['groupName']),
'checked' => in_array($row['ID_GROUP'], $curBoard['memberGroups']),
'view' => in_array($row['ID_GROUP'], $curBoard['memberGroupsView']), //-View Only Boards  MOD-[line 474]
'is_post_group' => $row['minPosts'] != -1,
);

Mod still works, but error log filling up whenever i create a new board.

Quick Question: Is there a way to disable this so guests can not click on the title to the side of it

I'd like to know that too....i can set permissions so that guests can see only the board forums but not the threads....however, if they click on the "LAST POST" link on the right hand side, they have access to read that thread....how do I disable that??

I see nothing wrong with the latest posts.
It won't show the posts from the boards you can't see.
I will update all my mods in the next few weeks. Thanks for your patience.
