Solved Controlling what guests can view

Post by fastone27 on October 1st 2010, 6:02 pm

I am sorry if this is a dumb question, but is there anyway I can only give permission for guests to only view the Categories and forums titles but have to register in order see the topics or post made by the members? I would like guests checking out our forum to see the subjects we are talking about but not what we are saying. I have checked out other sites and they have this feature. I have experimented with this too long....

Thank you for your time.

In the permissions set it as, then can view the forum. But uncheck it for Read the Topics.

In the Forum permission control screen I see the following option for setting permission for the Forums.

"View the forum and its messages "

When I set this to "All" guests can not only see the Forum title but all the topics that have been posted there. When I set this to "members", it does not show the Forum title to guests at all. Am I setting the permissions in the wrong place? Your answer was very confusing because I do not see where I can deny access to the the topics...could you be a little more specific where I do this or direct me to where this is explained in a little more detail. Or just tell me it can't be done.

Again, thank you for your time and assistance.

Support!

Sanket said it right. Un check the box that say view the forum for guest. Not sure how to explain this better.

Thank you.

However, I don't think you are understanding me. I want my guests to view the forum titles but not read the content of the forum...weather you call it topics, messages or replies. I have done what you told me and unchecked the "view and read" box (there are only two boxes "view and read" and "write and reply") on the permission page and that makes the forum titles invisible to guest. There does not seem to be a way to separate view and read. So when I did this, only the categories are visible. On another site I have visited, built on funforum platform, when you click on the forum title you are automatically redirected to a sign in page.

I know I am being persistent but I want to make sure you are understanding what I am asking.

Oh well, thank you anyway.

Support!


There is no way to do this. Sorry.

If you post the hidden tags only people who posted in the topic or are in staff can read the message.

Code:
[hide]content here[/hide]

Hi,

@fastone27 wrote:OK...again thank you for your patience. I where do I post this code. Sorry this may be over my head.

You put your text between the tags, for example
Code:
[hide]This is text that only the following people can see; Sanket, MrMario, Darren1 and fastone27, and anyone else who posts. Need proof? Log out, Bet you won't be able to see it ;) [/hide]

Test it =>

Thank you for your time.

You'll need to set each forum's permissions (in advanced mode)
so guests can see the topic name on the index but can't read it.

Uncheck "Guest Read the topics" and they'll be taken to
"Login or Register" when they click on that forum/topic.
