for those getting Column 'topic_password' cannot be null [1048], you need to add the posting.php edit into your Appform's code

for example: after the $data = array( code, insert your mod edit here..
so it becomes:

Code: Select all

$data = array( 
    // General Posting Settings
    'forum_id'            => 2,    // The forum ID in which the post will be placed. (int)
    'topic_id'            => 0,    // Post a new topic or in an existing one? Set to 0 to create a new one, if not, specify your topic ID here instead.
    'icon_id'            => false, 
'topic_password' => 0,  //topic password edit
 
same goes for functions_posting.php edit

Hello,

I notice in the administrator area, by default the topic password is off for all forums. I'm wondering if there is a way to change this so that the default is on?

Yes it is. before running install_topic_password.php you need to open it and edit

find

Code: Select all

array(FORUMS_TABLE, 'forum_allow_topic_password', array('USINT', 0)),
replace with

Code: Select all

array(FORUMS_TABLE, 'forum_allow_topic_password', array('USINT', 1)),

Hey Kamahl19,

Thanks for the quick response. I've already installed the mod. Can you tell me where might find it in code?

Nowhere.

You can uninstall and install again or just run a SQL command in your phpmyadmin to update table

Installation successful but password protection not working

Post by AzMandius »

Hello,
I love a lot the idea of this mod, have installed it successfully, i can see password field in acp and front-end, i can set a password to a topic, yet when i try to access the password protected topic thread i can do so freely, without password. Please see this topic, it is protected with a password: http://webdev.zz.mu/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1#p1

Am i missing something? Is there a way to check what's wrong?

Thank you a lot.

I believe the OP of the topic and admins (and I think moderators) can access it without needing to enter the password. If you try going to the topic using another account, like a test account, you probably will have to enter in the password.

EDIT: Seems like something went wrong (not sure what), as I could access the topic...strange.

Hello again.
Since no one has any idea about my issue (or not willing to have) i regret i have messed my freshly installed board's code with this mod, and i would like to completely uninstall it, including removing any trails left from the SQL command i have run upon installation. How do i reverse that SQL command?
Thank you,
Regards

I don't want to just post this, but no help came from PM or Email. :?

The Topic Password Mod works great, EXCEPT for one thing ... The RSS Feed, just shows the topic content in the feed when logged in as a standard member. Therefore anybody can read the post without a password.

I added also ACP module with 3 options: Admin / Moderator / Topic author does not need the password to access the topic.

I will probably also add the list of all forums so you can enable the MOD for multiple forums with just one click. Now, you have to do it for each forum separately in Forum settings.

Any more ideas?

Those all sound great. I, for one, cannot think of any more ideas. I hope the new version with these features comes out soon.
