Hi bantu,

I don't know if I missed it, but is it possible to set the permission who is able to use your MOD in ACP?
I have a user & group admin who sees the overwrite module but when he clicks on the link he gets a permission denied message. Is it possible to hide the link to the overwrite module for admins who are not allowed to use it?

Regards
Wolfgang

Hi Wolfgang,

since you can change the board settings there as well, it also requires permission to manage the board. It should not display if there is only one permission available. If it does, it's a bug or something that should be fixed. I'll look into it.

From the xml file.
Requires the administrator to have the “Can manage users” (a_user) and “Can alter board settings/check for updates” (a_board) permissions.

Hi bantu,

then it's not a bug because there is more than one link available in the menu for my manage user & groups admin. It's just ugly because it shouldn't be displayed at all.

Have a nice Sunday!

That's okay for me. Can you please tell me what I have to change when I want that my User & Groups admin can use your MOD, too?

Try replacing

Code: Select all

if (!$auth->acl_get('a_board') || !$auth->acl_get('a_user')) 
with

Code: Select all

if (!$auth->acl_get('a_user')) 
in root/includes/acp/acp_overwrite.php

Regards,
bantu.

Hey there, I'm currently running 3.0.2, I installed this MOD, and everything appears fine, however, I can still override the time settings through my UCP... does it ignore Admins and Founders? Also, the values don't seem to "stick," as in, when I revisit the module, they all revert back to the default value. Any ideas?

This is how it is supposed to work. It does overwrite the user settings only once.

Ahhhh... I see! Hmm... Is it possible (or is there a MOD) which forces the use of a specific time zone? I need all of my users to use UTC/GMT, any idea where I could find something like that? A search through both the MOD release and MOD DEV forums turned up nothing.
