Not Supported Uses Plugins  

This mod is made base on the request from this thread

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=108975

This is a crude work so it requires a couple permission settings to get to what you are looking for.

Currently, vb 3.5.x has the forum permission that either allow or disallow member/guests from viewing certain forum. I found out that we could enhance this feature by allowing viewer to browse the contents of these forum. However, they cannot view the content of a thread title. Once they click on the title they are prompt to register.

This hack will work on

printthread

showthread

archive/index.



Upload

bitfield_groupcantreadcontent.xml to includes/xml

request.gif to archive

request.gif to images

Import product through admincp



Permission Setup

To allow guest to view the content
  1. Forum permission : Allow them the view in whatever way you like
  2. Usergroup permission: Leave the Can Read Thread Content to NO
  3. Forum Manager : Set the Can Read Thread Content to YES
To disallow guest to view the content
  1. Forum permission : Allow them the view in whatever way you like
  2. Usergroup permission: Leave the Can Read Thread Content to NO
  3. Forum Manager : Set the Can Read Thread Content to NO
I will try to give as much support as my work schedule permitted.

Strange - It also stopped registered users from viewing threads as well.

Without this addition, your forum will show up as private and the forum will appear empty.

3.5.x has a "Can View Thread Content" permission. Setting that to NO will allow the user to access the forums, view thread titles, but not view thread content.

So, this plugin isn't needed....

I tried that and it gave me this picture. How do you setup the forum the show the title without the ability to view thread content?

You have some other setting affecting it I would guess.

You can see it work here on my site, using just the built in vBulletin settings:

No need for that attitude, if you don't find it necessary, just move on to the next thread.

Thanks Paul

pixelpunk,

I use this mod because it give a little message to guest instead of point them directly to login page. If you don't find its useful, then perhap other mod will suite your needs

Even though this feature exists, it would be nice to allow search engines to see the threads without guests being able to...
