Will the member who started the topic be able to see and respond tho the unapproved topic if I do that? So that the member and I can post back and forth with out anyone being able to see it.

See I would like to have a confidential conversations with certain members who decide to use this password protected board. I would love it if these guys can talk about "personal" stuff to consultants with out feeling uncomfortable about others in the psswrd protected board being able to read them as well.  :laugh:

Well, if you want the whole consultants thing, password protected boards (unless it's one per person) won't really solve that for you.

Moderation will go so far (it will mean only moderators see all of them, while otherwise users only see their own) but it does mean people must not approve topics.

On the other end of the scale, SimpleDesk will achieve what you want (and be more rugged and reliable at it) but I suspect it's a lot more complicated than you want it to be.

We'd like to be able to password protect boards from everyone - admin, global and regular mods.

How would we go about this?

Um, why?

The big thing, though, is that password protection is not really a measure of security, it's only as strong as the people who are being trusted not to give the password out. Experience suggests this is surprisingly low.

Oh, it's not for anything major.

Admin A, Admin B and Admin C all work together, but we'd like to be able to exclude each other from mini-plot boards; eg

Board 1 is for Admin A and Admin B
Board 2 is for Admin A and Admin C
Board 3 is for Admin B and Admin C

We just want to easily make it difficult to view the boards, without having to screw around with membergroups and stuff. It'd just make life that little bit easier.

Is there any way to increase the session time? I plan on having quite a few passworded boards but it may prove annoying if I have to keep entering the password several times a day.

Hi,

I have a problem with the above. modification. I installed, I set the password in the departments and now I can not see the board / thread, as it receives this message:
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '.unapproved_topics, b.unapproved_posts, t.approved, t.id_member_started FROM ' at line 6
Modification uninstalled manually and with machine and nothing (after the first re-installed the automatic installation of thinking that something will). Removing went 100% correct code agrees with what is proposed parser, the board removed in a xxx_boards. When you add a query on the phrase "passwd" in phpMyAdmin there is nothing interesting except (I think) this (column data type text and not the value of the function below):

In addition to this are the logs (and pretty acp) in phpMyAdmin.

This mod is not working with Tapatalk.  How can i hide a category in tapatalk or make it work with it ?

UndergroundVol

Well I tried what I thought would be an easy mod to try first since I had it on my site before transferring to a new server. Gonna have to copy and paste cause the snipping tool and print screen doesn't work here at work. Also, I was wondering if it might be a good idea to delete the two mods I have downloaded and start from scratch, in case there were some changes made to it due to the move? TIA

hi,

i got a group call 'premium member' group

thanks

Hi everyone,

I stumbled upon the following problem:

I change the board passwords on a regular basis. But members that never log out of the forum, never need to re-enter a password... The boards just remains accessible for them, even if they didn't provide the new password. Does anyone have an idea how to force them to re-enter the password after it has changed (or just after a day or so)?

Thanks in advance.  :)

please help

error no enter board

QuoteYou have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '.unapproved_topics, b.unapproved_posts FROM smf_boards AS b LEFT JOIN smf' at line 6

anything works fine  :'(

Cache the password as a cookie on the user's browser, and check it before allowing them to access the board.  If password doesn't match, prompt for new password....

I use this on my 2.0.18 system and it protects child boards as well (as long as you set the password)

I had to install it without using Emulation mode.
