How to Deny Guests All Access

Post by jeffamm »

Support Request Template
What version of phpBB are you using? phpBB 3.0.11
What is your board's URL? http://www.sordc.com/members
Who do you host your board with? BlueHost.com
How did you install your board? I used a tool provided by my host
What is the most recent action performed on your board? Fresh Install
Is registration required to reproduce this issue? No
Do you have any MODs installed? No
What styles do you currently have installed? ProSilver
What language(s) is your board currently using? English
Which database type/version are you using? I Don't Know
What is your level of experience? New to PHP and phpBB
When did your problem begin? From install
Please describe your problem. I need assistance with configuring permissions so that guests do not see the content of forums. I don't want them to get any information until they have been verified. It would be a plus to direct guests only to a specific page of general information and nothing else, if that is possible.

I attempted to do this using the "All No" option but I didn't get how to make it work.

Set the permission role for the Guests group for all forums to "No access".
  • ACP
  • PERMISSIONS
  • Group forum permissions
  • Select Guests
  • Tickmark All forums and press Submit
  • Select role No access for all forums

For some reason when I select all forums the page (index.php) loads to a blank screen...

You should start a new topic with the Support Request Template Generator filled out rather than posting in a year old topic that's marked as solved.
