  • Modifying forum permissions...

    For reference... www.mk5gti.com/forums/

    At the moment you should be able to view the Multimedia category and it's 4 sub forums.

    I'd like to make it so that forum is only available to registered users and above. But so that the guest, non-registered, and awaiting confirmation people can see that the sub-forums are there and that they are posts. For some reason, it's either you can see and get into all of them, or can't see anything and their locked.

    Thanks!

    Set the desired permissions for this forum and each Userghroup here:

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Permissions

    Also set this as desired:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Forum Listings Display Options -> Hide Private Forums

      Wow, now i'm confused. Using any of the options in Forums and Moderators section did not do what I needed. And somehow I made the moderators forum private, and I don't know how I did it. Can someone please help!?

      I guess the question is, how did I make the moderators forum Private in the first place?!

      Cramming all this stuff into 3 days dosn't leave me with much of a memory.

        You know, I searched through some of the older posts on this forum and I think I found the problem. You can't make it so that a user can view a post, and then doesn't have the same powers from within the forum itself. Thus, it has to be private... it cannot display the last post, etc. No biggie.

          Well, I'm dealing with this issue again, as I reset the board and decided on a different layout and such.

          Anyways, the subforums in question (at www.mk5gti.com/forums)

          are articles, digital artwork, and videos.

          I'd like to make it so that unregistered, awaiting confirm, and coppa can see the head of the forums, and how many posts etc. and the title of the last post, but can actually go in and read anything or post etc. Just like a topographically preview.

          P.S. - I've been trying different combos of forum permissions etc. and get either they see the forums and it says none and can't access them, or their completely open.

          Thanks!

              Steve, are you sure that's it!? I can't remember how I got it to work last time, but it was fairly easy -- just something I didn't realize I was skipping over.

              P.S. - I wish I could just send you my login and pw, that way you could see for yourself... and probably fix it in like 60 seconds, haha.

                Based on your description that is the closest I can find. Try looking at other posts in the Quick Tips forum. There is no built-in setting to do what you want.

                  Will do! Thanks Steve!

                  P.S. - Is it possible that I can make them say private instead of showing up like they have 0 posts, and 0 threads. Even if they say private it would be better. Thanks!

                    This can be done with template conditionals. Here is the online documentation for using template conditionals:

                      Does everyone agree conditionals are the best way to do this? Thanks!
