But he open a topic here before i said yes. So i do not know about the error's. In the last 3 day's i make a rehack of this one. Here is the link

Why dont you just turn off category for a forum?
You can still get in there and post btw as long as you remember the URL.

This hack hides the forum from people that aren't allowed in it but the members with access see it on the summary page like any other. I happen to think that's pretty slick.

Okay, I just finished hacking the files it works great on my test server. When the instructions say add behind, they mean add after.

It works great!

[code][/code]What it means, is that if the user can access ANY special forum, he can see this forum. You should make a check if there is THIS forum.

I have a test user at my test board that has access to two private forums and he can't see the hidden forum. What am I looking for LK?

Clarification LK...Are you strictly speaking of private or hidden forums? Examples:

A: You have 2 private forums. You give a user access to private forum A but not B. With this code you posted the user will be able to see both private forums A & B?

OR

B: You have 2 hidden forums. You give a user access to hidden forum A but not B. The code you posted the user will be able to see both hidden forums A & B?

I'm assuming you are speaking of "Hidden" forums strictly.

One thing I just noticed is that the forum and threads show up in the PNTF under "most popular topics within the past 30 minutes:" even if I'm logged out.

Okay, this fixed it;

ubb_pntf.cgi

find this twice;

if( (&GetForumRecord($in{f}))[6] =~ m/private/ ) {

replace it with;

if( ((&GetForumRecord($in{f}))[6] =~ m/private/ ) || (&GetForumRecord($in{f}))[6] =~ m/hidden/ ) {

public_pntf_summary.pl

find this;

if(($vars_forums{$number}->[6] =~ m/private/) || ($vars_forums{$number}->[3] ne 'On')) {

Replace it with;

if(($vars_forums{$number}->[6] =~ m/private/) || ($vars_forums{$number}->[6] =~ m/hidden/) || ($vars_forums{$number}->[3] ne 'On')) {

Find;

if((&GetForumRecord($number))[6] =~ m/private/) {

Replace that with;

if( ((&GetForumRecord($number))[6] =~ m/private/) || (&GetForumRecord($number))[6] =~ m/hidden/) {

I would like [email protected] or LK to look at it and make sure that I didn't miss anything if they could.

Edit: apparently you can't move threads to the hidden forums.

One prob I've had is that the hidden forums keep disappearing.

when i go view my PM's or goto recent visitors, when i click to go back to the front page the forums are gone.

The only way i can get them back is to open a new window and log back in.

Any ideas?

Anyone else that's running this having a problem with the hidden forums "disappearing" for users who have permissions to access them?

I login, the forums are there. I close my browser session, open a new browser session and go to the forums. I'm still logged in, but my hidden forums are no longer visible to me. The only way I can seem to get them back is to go into my Control Panel and clear the forum cache.

I wondering if this might have anything to do with my using UBB Accelerator. When I installed the mod, I went over it 3 times with a fine-toothed comb just to be sure I got it all right, so I'm damn confident that it's not something I overlooked. However, I suppose that's not impossible either. wink

I'm running 6.3.0.1 and installed the mod from [email protected]'s page for this version of UBB.

http://vvvcentral.com/forums

Edit: I just disabled UBB Accelerator for testing purposes. I want to see if this problem continues without its use.

Okay - it's not the UBB Accelrator in and of itself. I disabled (as mentioned above) and people are still having trouble with the forums disappearing.

I've disabled caching to see if that has anything to do with it. Does anyone have any ideas at all?

Seems to work fine with caching disabled.

I don't have the first idea on how to rectify this.

Because the forum is hidden think of it as an invisible forum, one that doesn't exist. If the forums show up in the drop down search or move option users who do not have access to the hidden forums will know they exist.

I think however that you can go into your CP and move the topics under Maintanence. In there you should be able to see every forum created. I think you can also take out the Search and drop down codes from the Hidden Forum hack so that your users can see the forums.

I think this is one of the most useful hacks made. I'm surprised that people aren't all over it. PHPBB and other PHP boards offer hidden topics right out of the box.

All links don't work. Is there anywhere else that this script is available?

Will Infopop ever offer this as an out-of-the-box feature?
