Wow, dirty, but genial :P


Except for the fact that if the first sentence a users sees when viewing your forum is "You have been banned permanenty," they're probably not going to stick around for long ;) At least I wouldn't!

Since it's a private forum, I guess it should be totally unreachable by unknown users. So they're not even meant to see that.

I’m not quite understanding what is difficult with putting the registered users code in index.php and faq.php, which are the only two locations that require it after all other options are set in the ACP. :?

it is not that difficult, but you have to admit there is something elegant in exploiting some existing quirk without modifying a single line of code.
it's a shame that the text on the blocked page is somewhat awkward, but the actual functionality is exactly what the OP wanted, with minimal fiddling and zero code change. not sure if that's how i would do it, but, at least until some modding advice is accepted here, that was the best trick i saw so far.

The code changes are so small, I can’t imagine MOD being made for it... it’s just more of a tip/trick than a MOD.

Not likely cos phpBB3 is feature frozen which means nothing is added to the feature list. But i still cannot see why you would want to block guest from seeing your Faq page. I will explain myself. The faq page is uniform on all phpBB forums (unless you are putting stuff in that relates very close to the operation of your board)

And just another "dirty" hack you can also alter the you are permanently banned messages. Problem only is that you then have an strange messages for people that are really banned permanently

The only solution is add this code

Code: Select all

if (!$user->data['is_registered'])
{
    redirect('ucp.php?mode=login');
}
In page you don't want guest see
