For a new thread only admins and mods can assign password. Thread masters can change (and delete) password for thread.

Okay, then the problem remains that the box for creating a password and thread master is not there...

is there a way make the member start the thread to put their own password?
I am doing a school forum, and i want the student to create their own study group thread and password protect it so only their group can go in.

I don't think it is possible with this hack. You might have to do it via usergroups and forum permissions and subforums or something like that.

I had to change the template edit in order to make it work.
But with my edit, only admins can set/change the password.

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

Before, add:

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

You must understand, that moderators still can change password by cheating tools.
Template changes not necessary. You must change plugins too.

None of my mods are technically minded enough to do that. Plus, if this mod was INTENDED to make it ok for Moderators to do that, I see no problem.

Cheers..

Maybe your client software does not send cookies ?
It can be browser, firewall, anonymization software.

Input fields in templates are big enough (80 chars), but you can edit them.

Okay, my skills don't extend to following any of the above directions, so I just let it go - but at this point it would be really really convenient to have more than 16 characters, since I use this for a lot of games. So if someone could tell me where I find the table that needs to be altered, I would appreciate it. And, I'll give it a try.

(I can't run sql queries, I have to ask my host to run them since so many people evidently accidentally deleted their boards or something by messing with it themselvse.)

Great mod, Works Fine on vB373.

Also to Protect the Password Change Form you can include the following conditional If so that only admins can access it:

Template threadpassword_form


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

Notice the

<if condition="in_array($bbuserinfo[usergroupid], array(6))">

...

</if>
My Best Regards.

When I move the thread into another forum or rename it, the password still will work, right?

And what if I merge or split threads?

Thanks!
Bruno
