    Exactly as Craig has said ...

    1. Good Idea poor execution
    2. No communication this was even changed or going to be changed
    3. Gives the option if you are going to take away something that we finally got people used to - and then poof its not working and getting a permissions error.

        Thanks for the solution...

        Edit: It works with vb cms comments forum but when trying to access the thread through "what's new", again authorization message is displayed. Anyway, its better now.

          Did you do both php edits? One is the search.php and the other is the forum display.php. I did this and I can say it does now work.

Please release a PHP file so we can put it back and next release create an on off switch in the forum settings.

              *edit* I've just fixed it myself based on what Mystics said:

              Comment out line 317 to 320 in showthread.php.
              PHP Code:
              //if ($thread['forumid'] == $vbulletin->options['vbcmsforumid'] AND !can_moderate($thread['forumid']))
              //{
                  //eval(standard_error(fetch_error('invalid_comment_forum', $vbphrase['forum'], $vbulletin->options['contactuslink'])));
              //} 
              Now open forumdisplay.php, scroll down to line 138.

              Replace the following
              PHP Code:
              if (!$foruminfo['forumid'] OR ($foruminfo['forumid'] == $vbulletin->options['vbcmsforumid'] AND !can_moderate($foruminfo['forumid']))) 
              with this:
              PHP Code:
              //if (!$foruminfo['forumid'] OR ($foruminfo['forumid'] == $vbulletin->options['vbcmsforumid'] AND !can_moderate($foruminfo['forumid'])))
              if (!$foruminfo['forumid']) 
              You will have to do this if you upgrade your forum again or when ever you replace the showthread.php and forumdisplay.php files. Hopefully next release vbulletin team creates an on/off switch for this.

              Do the following edits and it'll be fixed.

                Can someone please help this numtpy.

                Where do I find the search.php & forumdisplay.php?

                I've looked in the search and forumdisplay templates, but can't find that code, so I assume I am looking in the wrong place.

                  The files are located in your forum root.

                    Thanks for that, I feel silly now, but on the other hand I am so new to all this that just a few months ago I would have asked what the hell is the 'forum root'?

                    Anyway, sorted it now and it seems to work OK.

                    Oh, thanks to fogjuice too.

                      I did the forum display.php edit bu I could'nt understand the other one exactly. When a visitor tries to display the forum comment, "don't have access" notice displays.

                      I don't understand why they did this. If vb forces not to show cms forum threads, then what's the meaning of the forum permissions set up. It's so silly.
                      • Can View Forum
                      • Can View Thread Content
                      • Can View Others' Threads
                      Why are those permissions for?

                        Remove the showthread code instead of editing it with a new code as shown above. You can't do it halfway and expect it to work. Not the whole showthread but just lines: 317, 318, 318, 319, 320.

                          Thanks, I removed those lines but now the characters which we use and lack in the English alphabet became corrupted. Its a huge problem for me and it seems vb team play silence of lambs in this issue.

                            That's why it's better to comment it out rather than removing it.

                              Sorry but what does "comment out" mean?
