No, don’t use a redirect... use the login_box(); function... that’s what it’s there for.

And yes, that is the solution... so what’s the problem? :?

cant you disable Guest access to certain forums by changing the forums permisions so only people who are aproved or in a user group can get into that forum or am i wrong?

Yes... we already discussed that earlier in the topic.
The only place you *have* to add the login code is in the index and the faq, that’s all.
60 second job at best... probably as fast as setting a config switch.
Most (over 90%) of the boards out there won’t need that extreme of a condition. -- They would just set all forums to registered users only.

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
Is this different in 3.0.5? I have a use to do this where if a user has not registered they are sent directly to the login page. I have added this as prescribed above but I get a blank page when I put it into use.

I copied the top and pasted exactly in the right place in index.php and faq.php.

What am I doing wrong? Or is there something that I am missing?

Look on your server at the error_log file and post the latest messages if any. I'm not sure why it wouldn't work on 3.0.5 or 3.0.6 but we'll have to see.
