I am running a private forum for the youth group at my church and would like to further limit info that is available to visitors that are not registered.
On the front page of the forum, the one you see before you register, it contains a sticky that I placed there that only guests see describing the nature of the site. Below it are some other fields: 'Who is online'; 'Birthdays'; 'Statistics'. I would like these features to be available to the registered users of the site but not visible until you are registered and logged in.

How do I make this so?

Thanks

Permissions>groups permissions>guests
You can go advanced and look in the profile tab for
Can view profiles, memberlist and online list
and set that to no.

That blocks a lot of that info off in one go.

Thanks for the responses. I made the suggested changes that I were present under the profile tab(not all were). However, I still see all the fields I mentioned before as being visible before login. I cleared my internet cache and deleted all cookies before viewing the page again.

Any additional suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks.

Ah yes I was thinking the online part of that was the box at the bottom but in fact it just stops guests clicking the words 'who is online' to see more info about who's there at that time.

In that case you'll need to MOD the code a bit......I'll see if I can find a topic on it......

EDIT
Try this

Kevin,

Thanks, that helped out a lot. I'm still trying to figure out how to hide statistics in the same situation. I have posted a reply in that topic that you pointed me to. But basically my code doesn't match up with the example given.

Code: Select all

<br clear="all" />

<table class="tablebg" width="100%" cellspacing="1">
<tr>
	<td class="cat" colspan="2"><h4>{L_STATISTICS}</h4></td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td class="row1"><img src="{T_THEME_PATH}/images/whosonline.gif" alt="{L_STATISTICS}" /></td>
	<td class="row1" width="100%" valign="middle"><p class="genmed">{TOTAL_POSTS} | {TOTAL_TOPICS} | {TOTAL_USERS} | {NEWEST_USER}</p></td>
</tr>
</table>

And I don't know how to apply what they said to code that looks like this?


Thanks again.

Looks like you're using subsilver. That topic is for prosilver but the principle is the same.

Back up the file before you do it cos I'm not a great coder :)

You need to look for

Code: Select all

<!-- IF S_DISPLAY_ONLINE_LIST -->
	<br clear="all" />

	<table class="tablebg" width="100%" cellspacing="1">
and replace it with

Code: Select all

<!-- IF S_USER_LOGGED_IN and S_DISPLAY_ONLINE_LIST -->
	<br clear="all" />

	<table class="tablebg" width="100%" cellspacing="1">
