  • Permissions Message

    Hi,

    I just set up promotions for my forum. Is there a way to change the message they get when they try to do something that they don't have permission for? The message they get is:


    you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
    1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
    Basically what I want to do is place a link to the faq section that explains why they're seeing this message.

    Thanks

    Edit the not_logged_no_permission phrase in your AdminCP.

      Thanks Colin. It wasn't that phrase but you lead me in the right direction.

        Chabbs,

        Did you ever figure out what the correct phrase was to edit this?

        Thanks

          Hey Doug,

          Yes I did find the phrase. It's nopermission_loggedin. Search for the variable name.

              Anyone know which phrase it would be for when your NOT logged in?

              I dont see one called nopermission_notloggedin so im not sure what it would be.

              This is the text that I see when not logged in and trying to view the members list.

              You are not logged in or you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
              1. You are not logged in. Fill in the form at the bottom of this page and try again.
              2. You may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
              3. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
              I cant figure out what phrase controls this text.

                I believe this is more than one phrase. Do a 'Search in Phrases' for the specific language you are looking for, then edit the appropriate Phrase.

                Admin CP -> Languages & Phrases -> Search in Phrases

                Note: To edit a phrase, place the new phrase in the available language text boxes.

                  Steve,

                  You were right, thank you so much for your help.

                  Here is where they are if anyone else was wondering.

                  Line 1 "You are not logged in. Fill in the form at the bottom of this page and try again."

                  Is found in the not_logged_in_fill_in_form phrase.

                  Line 2 "You may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?"

                  Is found in the may_not_have_sufficient_privileges phrase.

                  Line 3 "If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation."

                  Is found in the administrator_may_disabled_account phrase.

                  Again thanks Steve, and I hope this helps others out as well.

                  Doug

                    When users are banned the no permission message comes up different for them.
