Hi everyone.

I need some code to hide threads from guests.

That is:

A guest can see the forum titles, e.g. 'Forum A', 'Forum B' - but when they click on the link, to therefore go to the forum and see the threads, they are redirected to that 'You don't have permissions to view' page.

SO - guests SEE the forums but when clicking on a forum get redirected - BEFORE they see threads.

I already have code so that a guest, if clicking on a thread, gets redirected - but can't work out how to do the same for a forum (the step before).

Thanks all

Phil

{
 error_no_permission();
}

Umm.. But why to hide content from guests?

Because they can leech things afterwards? meh.

Also about the problem, do it in the forumdisplay.php (and showthread.php since they can easily bypass it).

if(!$mybb->user['uid'])
{
 error_no_permission();
} 
Where in forum display.php - and do i need to change any of that code?
  • Go to the ACP
  • Click the Forums and Posts Tab
  • Click on the Forum You want to edit and it should bring up a picture like this.

  • Click Set Custom Permissions
  • Uncheck Can View Threads within forum! 
That should do it.
NO, that makes it look like there are no threads.

Does anyone actually know?
