External Data Provider Usergroup Setting 1.0


About this hack:
This hack allows you to set what usergroup external.php gets permissions from. This is a great hack for administrators who don't allow guests to view their forum. Using this hack you can set what usergroup it should get permissions from. I'm sure your users want RSS feeds!

Administrators who allow guests to view their forum but with barley any permissions, this hack will also help you.

Ever heard of RSS feeds? vB outputs for your forum but using the guest permissions. This hack lets you use any usergroup.

Thanks Abe. I find that you are quickly taking over my board's plugins. Your hacks are very useful and well supported. I have donated in the past and will do so again shortly. I just would not feel right not donating to you since the number of your hacks I have installed are more than all other hacks combined. Thank you very much.

Nice hack. It could be even better if instead of setting which usergroup it used it looked for the VB cookie and used the permissions based on the user registered. You used to be able to comment a line out in external.php to make it do this but it's not possible anymore. If you don't have a VB cookie i.e. your not a registered user it just basis the permissions on a guest login. This hack would be awesome if it could do that - No pressure though... I would donate if it was made to work like this for sure.
