Check if guest posting is enabled?

Post by clinton4 »


I'am working on a spam blocking script for my phpbb 3 forum and have a question.

In posting.php, is there any variable that can tell my if guest posting is enable or not for the current forum/topic?

I have looked at $config['enable_post_confirm'], but that always give me 1.

The best way to do this is to read the current forum's permissions for the ANONYMOUS user.

e.g. $auth->acl_get_list(ANONYMOUS, array('f_post', 'f_reply'), $forum_id);
This will return an array with the information you want contained within. See docs/auth_api.html in your phpBB download for more information.
