[ABD] Topics only visible to original poster

Post by kinerity » Thu Dec 04, 2014 11:02 pm

Extension Name: Topics only visible to original poster
Author: kinerity

Extension Description: An extension for phpBB 3.1.x that allows topics to be visible only to the OP and users with the correct permission.
Extension Version: Beta

Requirements: You must have this pull request merged into you phpBB installation for this extension to work. It is slated to be included in 3.1.3.

Extension Download: http://www.acsyste.com/op_only_topics.zip

I commented out the code I plan to use for the search if I can ever get the event I need included in the code. If you're feeling adventurous, you can add the event yourself and remove the relevant comments from the listener file. See this topic.

Interesting...
I'll take a look at it later.

Thank you for creating this. This is a much needed feature. Too bad there can't be a properly supported MOD version though....

When is that 3.1.3 release happening? Any idea?

What does this mean? I thought MODs are no longer? Extensions replace them now, no?

No, that's not true as 3.0.x is still supported. My main board uses 3.0.12 as I had decided long ago that I won't bother upgrading to 3.1.x - I have too many MODs (not to mention too many of the MODs I like still have yet to become extensions). I just wished there was a MOD version of this extension, one that's supported (as the current one doesn't seem to be supported)

If it makes you feel better I used the 3.0.12 mod version on my board before updating and it worked great. Supported or not.

I c... While yours is a permission and a forum-wide option. In my version, it is only a permission. I guess that, if the permission is not on for the forum, all the rest is ignored for that forum.

Security faults:
Careful mate! You are still too incomplete!
  • You don't secure the MCP.
  • You don't secure the UCP.
  • You don't prevent e-mail notifications.
  • You don't prevent internal notifications (when mentioned, for example).
  • You don't prevent bookmarking
  • You don't prevent post quoting
  • You don't prevent post PM quoting
  • You don't prevent post reporting
  • You don't filter log viewing
You also have other incomplete actions:
  • viewtopic: The user can guess the topic exists because, in some configurations, the notifications login box appears when the user tries to access.

Can you elaborate on the UCP and other points? I can see the issue with the MCP (any moderator regardless of permissions will see it).

How did you test this? If I try to access a topic as a guests, I get a "You are not authorised to access this area". I can't prevent people from guessing topic_ids. :?

There was a small problem with the zip file I sent out (it had other extensions I'm working on :lol: ). Please either remove them or download the new zip.

brunoais has advised me that he is working on the same extension. I don't see the point in having 2 extensions that functionally do the same thing, so I'll abandon this one.
