Go to ACP > Permissions [Tab] > Groups permissions > Guests > (user permissions) click on Advanced permissions
And set each option within each tab to No.

This should disable their ability to use the search function.

For the other pages, open faq.php and index.php
Add the following code:

Code: Select all

if (!$user->data['is_registered'])
{
    login_box('', 'LOGIN');
}
right AFTER you see...

Code: Select all

// Start session management
$user->session_begin();
$auth->acl($user->data);
$user->setup('viewforum');

// and for faq.php...
// Start session management
$user->session_begin();
$auth->acl($user->data);
$user->setup();
That should do it :D

Dude, I just posted that... it’s controlled by permissions (the memberlist and the search) in phpBB3, NOT configuration. :roll:
You have to go into Group Permissions > Guests > User permissions > Set all to NO!.

Most topics here are answered by other users - that is the norm.

You might get a mod/admin to reply, but they too like the other users to assist where they can - so they can concentrate on the software itself.

You actulally had one of the more experinece regular members (not like me) post an answer for you - a good one - you should be greatfull to have had such a good reply.

BTW - it was just the answer I too would have given you - so you have now had two users give thier recommendations - which happen to be the same.

actually, there is a way to do what you want without playing with permissions.
the only problem is that the text displayed to guests is a little awkward.
the "trick":
ban the anonymous user, and in "Reason shown to the banned" write something like:
"This board is for registered users only. If you are a registered user, please log in. I you are not, please Register"

guests will see something like this:
* Board index
* Change font size

* FAQ Register Login


Advanced search
Information

You have been permanently banned from this board.

Please contact the Board Administrator for more information.

Reason given for ban: This board is for registered users only. If you are a registered user, please log in. I you are not, please Register

This ban has been issued on your username.
