You could create a plugin using hook global_bootstrap_init_start and this code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

:(It works not..

Oh, sorry, I misread and thought you had closed your forum. When you say "closed for guests" what does that mean?

Only registered users can see the forum, on the vb3.8 i have no problems with this option.

I think you'll need to actually edit the external.php file directly. It checks the forum permissions on line 129:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

So, you'll want to modify that to allow the user to see the forum (remove the canview and canviewothers lines?)

This will mean that anybody to can see the feed.

works not i think that was work on vb3.8

It does work on 3.8. Did you try removing the condition there on your 4.2 forum code? You may need to remove this also:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Both are not works on 4.2 pl3

Make sure you comment out that stuff in the if and else area (around line 172). And, probably comment out the stuff around line 191. Wait out the cache and then see if it works.

It ist not my first mod but will not works, will you this do it for me please ?

**edit: File removed as vbulletin doesn't give you permission to redistribute their files.

Lynne 31 Jan 2013 18:36

You may not post a vbulletin file as they do not give you permission to redistribute them.

Just post your code from line 124 to 137 and then from 170 to 180 and then from 190 to 195. You should have lines commented out in all of those areas. After commenting out the code according to what we have talked about here, please post those lines using the code tags and I will see if you did it correctly. Do not post it for me to do for you - try to do it yourself.

First sorry i dont have think, now it works BUT i have forums theres only for the team an now in the feed all user can see this ?

Lynne 31 Jan 2013 19:27

You said you wanted your guests to be able to see all the feeds. So, that is what that code does. If you don't want some forumids to show, then you need to modify the $forumchoice variable to NOT show those forumids (just put a condition around it that if it's forumid x, then it doesn't get added to the array).

Theres many variables of this type in the external.php :(

All times are GMT. The time now is 19:59.
