Ideas for viewing page by members only

Post by zoobie » Sun Jul 20, 2008 9:26 am

I'll try here...move if you must

I'm about to update from 2 to 3 and would like to use the db for allowing members only to view a regular php page on my site that has lots of videos on it.

Does anyone have any clever ideas on how this would/should work?
Is there a way to see the page but once the mouse is clicked, first show the login?
Or another creative way?
Not too versed in db's...

Thanks

PS - anyone know if the album addon is gonna work in 3?
PSS - which forum do I ask here for some db coding assistance?
Thx

"use the db for allowing...." is a strange way of putting it however if you mean using the phpbb authorization system to restrict access to your extra page, then that is certainly possible with phpbb2 and phpbb3.

no MODs that worked in phpbb2 will work in phpbb3 period.
phpbb3 has some built in things that were MODs in phpbb2, like attachments, subforums, etc..


again, "db coding" is a strange way to put it.
exactly what are you wanting to do?

If your ultimate aim is to add something on to phpBB3, then you should be asking in the 3..x "Support" or "MOD Requests" forums.
The Knowledge Base contains solutions to many common problems!
How to fix "Doesn't have a default value" and "Incorrect string value: xxx for column 'post_text' " errors.
How to do a clean re-install of the latest phpBB3 version.
Problems with permissions? Read phpBB3 Permissions
