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 means guests can access pages without having the permission to?

Correct.

I just read your request. You can use the plug-in code for your custom page.

Sounds interesting!

But please answer. I have some forums that I don't want to guests view them, but want to be access to RSS.

This happens since I have to many users using RSS to access to my forum, but when click to see the thread, they will need to register to see the all content of message. Is this possible to do with this hack?

That is how this hack works.

If you let RSS see the title, when a user clicks on it, they will have to log-in to see it.

It seems to work great with user group permission but ignores cookie based permission.

I would really like to get this working this is exactly what Im trying to do.

I have my forum only viewable to members. So I set the usergroup in External Data Provider to a usergroup # that could view all the forums. I went to my rss page and it didnt work, it was blank. I logged in as admin and went to the same rss page, and could see it. So this is not working unless I am not doing something??


Could this because Im using FPS_External Version: 2.00 to generate the RSS feeds and not external.php?
