Updated by BirdOPrey5

This is a quick update of the vBulletin 3.6 mod by netwind: Thread Passwords (VB 3.6)

It is marked Re-Usable Code.

NOTE: Confirmed bug affecting all attachments. See post #20.

By request I have updated this to work on the latest vBulletin, VB 4.1.12. It should work on all 4.x versions.

There are NO new features, it is a simple update so it works with 4.x

I will not be providing official support for this mod- truth be told I'm not sure how it works, only that it does in my quick tests.

This is the original description:

This hack allow protect thread by password same way as forums.
Administrator and moderators can change password, can appoint thread masters.
Thread masters can only change password.

All thread content are protected by password : attachments,printable version, archive,
search results. Instant subscription letters will not contain message.
Please "Mark as Installed" if you use it.

Yeah, I can imagine that would probably happen. Keep sensitive info out of the preview area.

Great module! One question: is there a way to add the password and Thread Master fields on thread creation, instead of having to post the thread, then go back and edit it?

Probably and I encourage people to try adding this feature. It is "Re-usable code" so anyone can make additions or changes to it.

Thanks, I'll give it a try in a bit. Unfortunately, I've run into a more significant problem. With the module enabled, all attachments on my entire forum break. They appear to upload properly, but they do not display at all. No thumbnail shows, all that is visible is the mouseover text with a link. Clicking the link opens the window where the attachment image is usually shown, but it never loads and eventually returns an error. I have tested the module with and without the template edit, and the error is there even without the template edit, so it appears to be something within the module files themselves. Do you have any idea which section could be causing the conflict?

Confirmed.

Immediate work-around is to disable the "thread password" plugin on the attachment_display hook.

Disabling this will allow users who do not have the password to the thread to see attachments in that thread if someone gave them the URL of the attachment- this may or may not be a problem for you.

I don't see an immediate long-term solution, I will try to work on it when I get a chance.

Excellent, that did indeed fix the problem. I feel a bit silly for not checking the plugin list, that one was rather obvious once I saw it. :P

That feature really isn't much of an issue for how I plan on using the system, so I'm perfectly happy to run it without it. If it can be fixed later, that's great, but if not it's still a great module without it.

I had to take this out.
Reason being, that with this installed it made all posts with images, even Threads without having a password, showing as 'broken' images (you know the images which show a little broken icon instead of the picture).

As soon as I took this modification out the images within posts were showing fine again.

Update to my post
I just read the above 3 posts so I see you know about it.
I will leave it not installed for the time being though.

if you can't find this code in your SHOWTHREAD template:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

You probably have a custom style- you will need to look for code like it...

earch for "show_printable_version"

Question, what usergroups can access the password threads without having to give the password... Admins of course, but, what about mods and supermods?... Is there a way to edit this?...

Thank you...

By the way, the mod has been very useful =P...

Admins, super-mods, and mods of the forum the thread is posted in should have access.

I don't use this mod and have uninstalled it so I don't have any more info.

I just install it on my test forum (4.2.1).
I uploaded the file, imported the xml and change the template but when I click on
Setup thread password appear this message:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Any idea? Thanks in advance!

Great mod, thanks!

Is it possible that every user, including super-mods etc., has to enter the password? This would be great!

Thank you.
