Password Protect Boards

Link to Mod

This modification allows you to set a password on a per board basis.  Users will be required to enter the password on the board index prior to being able to view any of that board's content.

Administrators and Moderators on that board (global moderators included) are exempt from having to enter the password.

This modification does not protect child boards.


This modification was tested using SMF 1.1 RC2.  It may or may not work with RC1.

SMF 1.0.5 is up.  Make sure you grab the correct file.

Thnx!

Haven't had the need for it yet, as the permission-based is sufficient ATM. But it's in my favourites!!

This is a nice mod! :)
But i wudnt recommend it
because passwords can be easily leaked
making use of usergroups for limited access is a better way! :)
Gr8 mod tho! thnx! :)

Thantos

You got the wrong version of the mod.  Use
passwdBoard_0-1_SMF105.zip

Ok I found it, go ahead and delete the line

'passwd' => $row['passwd'],

near 1094.

It was due to the package manager finding two lines like the one I told it to search for.  I'll find a better search to use.

Thantos

I have corrected the problem in 1.0.5 (Doesn't appear the problem was in the SMF 1.1 version).
There is a new package up with the change and its upgradable.

Mike please help.

I downloaded it from you page but then how do I apply it?

Thantos

Admin -> Package Manager -> [ Download New Packages ] -> Package to Upload: -> Choose -> Upload
Apply Mod
[ Proceed ]

THE SAGE

Mike, Thanx.

I did that...But now I want to make one of my boards/sections password protected but I dont see the option.

Where would I find it?

THE SAGE

NEVER MIND!!

Found it!!

Your the best!!!

the only thing that i dont REALLY like about the mod, but I can live with it, is the fact that the password boxes are on the index page, and I have like 6 password boxes, and it is really starting to look cluttered.
