Can anyone just find out a way to do this for SMF 1.1?

twostars

Sorry, but I tried what I was told and it didn't work.

I really, really thought it would. I'm thinking I'm so tired I'm confused. If you could tell me which permissions to set that'd be great. :)

As in Post count groups below the post count have these settings: blah blah
Post count groups with the required post count and above have these settings: blah blah

Sorry guys  :-[

I have a mod for this, working for any version of SMF.
More flexible, you can choose which groups can see which boards.
I'm not sure if I ever released that mod, I'll have to check it out.
I will update all my mods in the next few weeks. Thanks for your patience.

Sounds great, but does it control who can see and who can access... because I want a membergroup to be able to see the board, but not be able to get inside it.
They need a required post count to get inside ;)

You can set who can see on the board index and who can actually access the content of the board.
PS. here's a screenshot
This is the board settings. I added a second column of checkboxes, where the second one is the "visibility" box. The first one is the normal access. As you can see in this example, the "Guests" (Visitatori) can see the board, but can't access it. The second checkbox is optional, meaning that if a user has access to a board it will be always visible even if you don't check the 2nd box (ex: Art Director).
Hope this illustrates better the idea.

I applied unknown's mod from page 1 of this thread on my site hxxp:www.ps3hax.com [nonactive] for a SMF 1.1.1 site, and now guests can see the Forum index of boards, but not enter the ones where I have taken Guest permission off in Board settings.  Nice.

Would love to have guests  (and Googlebot) be able to see Forum index and to see Topics inside a board, but not to see the individual posts inside a topic for a chosen board.  That would give googlebot and guests a lot to see, without the total info.

Rudolf, let us know when we can test your mod, looks impressive (need english controls please).

cheers everyone.

Rudolf

maybe tonight... ???
I'm finishing up another mod, then turn to this

How do I allow guests to view the threads in the message index but not be able to read them without registering? All I want them to see is the subject. Been searching for the answer for almost an hour and I give up so I'll just ask.

Have fun.

The readme file doesnt state how to use it. I'm sure its a great mod but I have no idea how to configure it.

That feature is not implemented, and it wasn't supposed to, but I added to the mod. I'll update the package in a day or two, and release it.

And I'll review the readme file. I don't remember what I wrote and what not. I'm talking about the readme.html in the package.

I have a question, i installed the mod and now i want to deny some board rights to my "Trail member" group and "Rookie" group, i want them to see the boards but not entering.

But when i set the permissions for a board and then try it with a test account i can still enter the boards ::)





Why is this happening?

Rudolf

Because The trial member is also a Regular member.
So it has access.
The access and visibility is the "sum" of all the gruops the member is member of.
I will update all my mods in the next few weeks. Thanks for your patience.

Got it to work, i set the regular members to "see" board but no access then also set the "Trail member" to "see" board but no access ;D

Thanks for this mod.

justafishermen
