Not Supported DB Changes Is in Beta Stage  

I have seen some rules hacks that require users to agree to the rules before allowing them to post, but they have been board wide from what I have seen.

This one allows you to set up separate contracts on a per-forum basis. You can have a special contract for a debate forum and a different one for your sex forum. It's up to you.

THIS IS A BETA HACK. IT MAY HAVE BUGS. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Planned features:
a - an install script to handle the queries, template and phrases. I want to work the kinks out of the code first.

b. - a ticket system by which you can temporarily or permanantly ban members from posting in individual forums if they violate the contract.

I have no plans of integrating this hack with any other ticket systems. I don't use any of the others because we really only have problems in one forum.

It would be cool if you could toggle between the ability to VIEW the forum and POST in it, or have both...

Also I haven't tried this but if it had the ability so that once you clicked that you agree some kind of a flag was set on your usergroups that made it so you didn't have to click "I agree" again, that would be cool as well.

The flag is set Pick. You only have to agree once. I originally intended to hack it so a contract had to be signed to read as well, but I don't really need that functionality. As it stands, I don't see this being a widely used hack; so I don't plan on going into overkill on extra features that I don't need.

Did you know the instructions have a couple of blank fields where the 'Add this template' bit is?

Obviously, I added a template called forum_contract that had the content as per the other txt file, but it could be confusig to others.

I might also suggest adding something to the 'have they signed a contract' line, especially in newthread.php, because guests still get the 'New Thread' link due to the silly logic behind displaying that..

I use

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

Guests don't see it any more. I am also using the hack on forumdisplay.php...it works okay but the redirect sends people back to the Forumhome. *confusion*

I must have forgotten to save the file after I wrote that last bit :blush:

This is a great idea - specially for the sim forum I run where we have different rules for each sim! Definitely will be installing this one very soon!

Is there a way to make it to require them to sign it before even viewing the forum? Before even posting....
