External Data Provider Usergroup/Cookie Setting 2.2


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!

There is now an option to have the browser look for cookies to get permissions from.

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

This is great! I was just getting ready to implement RSS feeds on my site, but we have one forum, that is restricted to members only, and a couple private forums for various groups. This solves the problem of being able to use those forums in an RSS viewer quite nicely. Thanks!

Does this allow you to add multiple groups? I have several groups that need access.

How would the browser differentiate between them?

It uses cookies now to see if it can get a userid so it can get the users usergroup. If it does not find the cookie then it uses a default usergroup that you set.

How does the RSS feed check for cookies? Does this mean you need to use a browser for reading the feeds? Or can all RSS readers store cookies? Please pardon my ignorance.

Also, a bit off topic here but is there any way to set the RSS feed to send all new posts instead of just new threads?

Dont know about the 2nd question.

As for your first, it will only work if you use a browser I guess like in FF or IE. If it can't get a cookie then it will use the default usergroup you set.

I don't want to show any rss feed for guests or regular members but only for a special usergroup.

Is that possible?

Yes. Set it to look at cookies. Also, set the usergroup setting to usergroup 1 which is guests.

The thing is that I want only one usergroup to get the feed, not any other logged in user or guest.

Could you give me a small advice about how to do that? I am not quite sure what you are talking about.

I already tried to edit the postbit_external though but the usergroup conditional seems not to work there as saving is not possible without producing syntax errors.
