2 questions please ... URGENT

Post by jbdean »

I have searched and searched and not found what I'm looking for. It might be here, sure it is, but I just can't find it. So, please excuse this if it's a repeat.

I need to know that if someone comes to my board and they are not already a member, will they see the 'log in page' first? I think that is a yes, but need to be certain.

and

How do I remove the FAQ, SEARCH, MEMBERLIST, USERGROUPS, PROFILE, YOU HAVE [NO] MESSAGES, & LOG IN links from the top of the log in page only (not from the other pages)? I asked this earlier to remove only the MEMERLIST but the direction I received resulted in a big mess up on my board so I'm back to the regular design. (Not sure if I did it wrong or not but it still messed things up, so I'm asking again).

The reasons I'm asking this is that on my old board (not a phpbb) I have some trouble makers that I want to be sure do not get in to the new board and do not have access to info that only members should have (those links). I don't want to have to moderate the sign ups as that's a lot of hassle for 2 trouble makers but if I can set it this way I'll feel secure. They keep using different isps so banning an ip # isn't a sure bet at keeping them out.

Thanks!

There are a number of thiings to note here...

When you first get to your forum, you will see the index, it will have a log in at the bottom (but that can be moved/copied to the top). See This.

As set up, phpBB will allow access to memberlists, profiles etc.. There is a MOD you can apply to require a log in BEFORE you can see them. Check the MODs section as there are a few in there that will achieve this. I have done this to mine...

To remove the links you will need to edit the overall_header.tpl, BUT this may affect the whole board. (bit new at this too - learning :wink: )

However, if you have 2 people whom you know are trouble, you can block them in phpBB via the Admin Control Panel - user Admin - ban control. You can use an IP address if youknow them... :D

Hope this helps some...

Good Luck. . .

What is the MOD called? I've looked in MODs and can't find one that blocks this info.

Thanks, again. :)

MODs for Access

Post by CTCNetwork »

Hi,

I think the one I used is guest_permission_1.0.2 available Here.

Does much the same thing though... :D

Note:- It is a phpBBHacks MOD so you will get support on their forum for it.. :D

Good Luck. . .

It's not just that I don't want to see their posts, I don't want them to have access to my bb or the user's info. They may be just two ... but they are like a tornado when they begin to post their junk.
