Announcements viewable by guests?

Post by Netrilix » Mon Feb 09, 2009 11:38 am

I've been searching for a solution to this situation for a little while, and I've come up empty.

I'm trying to disable announcements and/or global announcements from showing up for guests. I'm looking for a way to do one of the following, any of them will help me accomplish what I'm going for:

-Show announcements to all but one forum [I'll disable it from my Public forum]
-Disable one announcement from showing in one forum [I'll disable this one post from my Public forum]
-Disable guests from viewing announcements in one forum [I'll disable guests from viewing announcements in my Public forum]
-Disable guests from seeing announcements at all
-Disable guests from seeing a single announcement

Any ideas you have would be helpful,
Thanks,
-Netrilix

To disable announcents to not to shown to guests change your Forum based permissions.
Change the following permission in the forum permissions "Can read topic" to no.

Umm...

a MOD?
Are you sure they have it in their phpBB installation?

Forgive me if I'm missing something, which is very possible, but did you add Announcement Centre as a later add-on? Or was it part of the original install? I can't seem to find it in ACP.

If it's a MOD that needs to be added on, I have no problem doing that if someone can point me in the direction of the version that features that ability.

Thanks,
