Let guests see only topic lists

Post by dionyson » Thu Apr 19, 2018 1:50 pm

I'm using phpbb 3.2.2 and is there any way for guests(and/or not logged in users) to let see only forum and topic lists?

I want guest users log in or resister in order to read each post in a forum.

I searched for this board and read some articles related to my concern, but they're out of date and didn't work.

I'll appreciate any suggestion for this matter by anyone who can get things done. :)

ACP> Permissions> Groups forum permissions> Guests> **select your forum**> select read only access
Apply permissions. Then deny guests access to the rest of the board.

Knowledge Base - phpBB3 Permissions

Edit: Looking at this again, this isn’t what you need. Are you talking about the whole board and you want guests to see the structure of forums and topics but not be able to read any topics or posts?

Try setting the forum to Read-only access for Guests. but then using Advanced permissions, set Can Read forum to No. Note, the Role will now say "No role defined". That is normal.

Edit:

Tested. That does what you want. Can see the topic list but not read the topics.

I met only general sql error message through this way.

However, thank you for your reply, anyway.

Dear, stevemaury

It works perfectly for my another site to which I want actually apply what I want, although it still doesn't work at the former testing site I tried.

Thank you so much!
