What Does This Hack Do?

This is an update to my 3.7.x version of this hack.

This simple hack adds usergroup permissions for which Usergroups can view the Forum Leaders page. If a Usergroup does not have permission to view the Forum Leaders page then they will recieve a custom vBulletin no permissions message, and it will also remove the View Forum Leaders link on the forumhome page.

This hack was created because I liked the idea of the request in this thread.

There are no file or template changes at all and is fully phrased.

AdminCP settings for this hack available in vBulletin Options > View Forum Leaders Based On Usergroup Permissions.
Settings that can be changed are:
  1. Enable/disable this hack
  2. Usergroup permissions - which groups will be able view the Forum Leaders page (no usergroups can view the Forum Leaders page by default)

vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with vBulletin versions 3.6.0 - 3.8.8.

For the v4.0.x version of this hack - check here.

Hi all,

It is with regret that after over 4 years (and thousands of hours) spent providing free support for my free hacks released here, as of today I will no longer be able to provide support for free.

This is due to being unemployed for a while, being strapped for cash and unable to rely on the virtually non-existent donations from here to help to pay the bills or put food on the table for my family. I am now providing all support for my free hacks released here over at Wolfshead Solutions via an annual support subscription (for a small fee).

It does not mean I will be no longer release free hacks, I will, but I will just no longer be supporting them for free.

My free hacks have and always will remain free to download and use. And so will updates/bug fixes.

I will be releasing more free hacks, but if you require any support at all for those free hacks, you will need to purchase an annual support subscription over at Wolfshead Solutions to receive support.

I am really sorry I have to do this, but revenue generated by my programming gigs are now my only source of income, and I can no longer afford the luxury of providing free support here, when that time can be spent creating new commercial products, doing paid work requests or providing paid support to pay the bills.

Thank you for the understanding.

Regards,

Mosh.
