Thread Blocker by BOP5 - Block usergroup access to specific threads
Mod Version: 1.2.0, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Dec 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 22
Released: 26 Aug 2011 Last Update: 11 Dec 2012 Downloads: 95
Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

Version 1.2.0: Added blocking by thread prefix
1.1 - Added block by userid
1.0 - Initial Release

I know the best way to control access to threads is via built in permissions and promotions systems however some times for special circmstances there are just certain threads you want to block from certain people- maybe from guests for example. What this mod does is make it easy to block some specific threadids from usergroups you specify. Simple and effective. The users without permission will see an error message saying they don't have access to that particular thread.

1 Plugin and 1 Global Phrase: bop5tb_noaccess - This is the error message others will see when attempting to view a thread.

Working on vBulletin 3.8.7- 4.1.5 and should work on all VB 3.6.x and up including all 4.x versions.

Demo (on VB 4,x forum- but same code):
Blocked Thread: http://www.qapla.com/mods/showthread...ew-this-thread.
Unblocked Thread in same forum: http://www.qapla.com/mods/showthread...la-Demos-Forum

O.k, just to confirm: That did the trick. So the plugin with the prefix produces errors with vbseo.

I really can't see how VBSEO could be causing an issue, it sounds more like some sort of caching system if anything. But I can't test with VBSEO so will wait if someone else can confirm or debunk.

it might be a bug somewhere as i do not have VBSEO installed at all , nor any other SEO thingy, don't need it anyhow due to the nature of my board. the new version directly thwarts all set usergroups to see any thread whatsoever.. even when prefixes aren't set, nor single userid's.. just a single thread and a single usergroup still will block the guests as well as any usergroup below the initially set one.

the old version i found in your post max did the trick for me as well, as i need to block very few forums for very few usergroups, but in light of me setting up a complete set of prefixes i might have a use for blocking those as well.

don't get me wrong.. it is no biggie using the older version that work perfectly but with the single user/ prefix options there as well the possibilities become way more 'flexible' if you will..

good mod.. installed the older version on my testsetup pending deployment on the live board.. VB 4.2.2 PL1.

if the kinks will be worked out of the updated product.. you got another 'installed' ticked!

ow on that note,, mind if i have a friend of mine look at it and hit you or BOB5 up with the corrections? (if any could be worked out ofc..)

cheers!

You can block by userid or usergroup- and add multiple threadids to block, but it is the same threadids for all users/groups being blocked.
