Solved How do I make it so only a guest can see a certain forum?

Post by TheSmallestOpp October 12th 2023, 5:50 pm

So not long ago I created my forum and I basically want it to be private to where someone that isn't logged in or isn't a member and is a guest can't see any of the categories and forums. I made a category that says "If you see this your a guest!" and then the forum attached to it says to register an account to view the contents of the forum and so on. The problem is that it wont let me make it so only guests can see because what members can't do guest can't because the role is higher. And I don't want members to have to always see it because it would be annoying for them and such. How do I work around this?

what if you gather all the members in a group
called "forum members"
Minimum Posts : 1

and then go to that category settings and uncheck the possibility to read view and post

If I do that then anyone who's a member would need to have at least 1 post which some would probably just want to lurk and not have to post anything, is there an alternative to having to have 1 post?

Good morning!

1) AP - General - Categories and forums

If you already have a category (not a forum!) for guests - edit it. If not, create one

Category name: enter the following in this field

Code:
<div class='guest__category'>NAME CATEGORY</div>

NAME CATEGORY - Your title for this category.

Save.

Next, create forums in this section for guests.

2) AP - Display - Colors&CSS - CSS Stylesheet

Insert this code:

Code:
.forumline {
  visibility: hidden;
}

Save.

3) AP - Modules - Javascript codes management - Create a new Javascript

Title: any
Placement: In all the pages
Javascript Code:

Code:
$(document).ready(function() {
window.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function() {
  const logOut = document.querySelector('#logout');
  const forumCategories = document.querySelectorAll('.forumline');
  const userNick = window._userdata.username;
  const adminNick = 'Admin';
  if (userNick === adminNick) {
    forumCategories.forEach((item) => {
      item.style.visibility = 'visible';
    });
  } else {
  forumCategories.forEach((item) => {
    if (item.querySelector('div.guest__category') && logOut) {
      item.style.display = 'none';
    } else {
  item.style.visibility = 'visible';
  }
  });
  }
 
  });
    });

Save.

In this code

Code:
const adminNick = 'Admin';

instead of Admin, specify your nickname ( in quotes) to have access to the guest sections.

Result:

View for admin

View for guests:
