AgeLock v3.5
Mod Version: 3.5b, by stuie_b (Coder) stuie_b is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.x Rating: (9 votes - 4.78 average) Installs: 83
Released: 13 Feb 2010 Last Update: 08 Aug 2011 Downloads: 438
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Re-usable Code Is in Beta Stage  

Age Lock is an all-in-one Forum locking facility that works off the users age instead of there permissions
It gives you the ability to keep those Under 18's out of your adult section


Change log
+ Added support for CMS (Blog locking is there but not usable (99.9% sure blog locking is prob. pointless, since all users would be able to age restrict posts))
+ Enable/Disable Guest Viewing of age locked forums
+ Moved Age Lock core from outdated hook (global_start) to new (global_bootstrap_init_start)
+ Removed defunct Error message
+ Added abillity to re-enable Date of Birth Editing for all users
+ Fixed Bug where Date of birth editing is still disabled for users who are exempt from Age Lock
+ Reworded Default Age Lock Messages
+ Added support for multi-level forum locking using parent lock state (instead of parent-->forum, now parent-->forum-->subforum-->..)
+ Removed over zelus agelock checking (No more queries to get lock state)
+ Removed vb 3.x support

3.5a Fixes
+ Fixed CMS bugs (missing table prefix)
+ Updated template edit to work with Vb 4.1.5

3.5b Fixes
+ Really fixes the CMS bugs (Sorry )

Please be aware although support is provided it is limited. This version is in beta so expect bugs!

enjoy

Uninstall all previous versions before installing latest version!

There is NO update code from previous versions to this!

This is pointless because what happens when someone lies about their age and they gain access to an 18+ section of someones forum?

Atleast with permissions you have to vet them first using join requests for access to an 18+ group before they can view 18+ forums.

Firstly Permissions offer no extra form of protection either, seeing as you have no idea who they are anyway not to mention the level of extra work involved for the admins to "vet".

Secondly, The idea is to remove the legal ramification from the site admins, yes users can and will lie about there age but it works on the basis that you trust your members. it's impossible for you to prevent people signing up with a fake bday unless you required proff of there D.O.B, however it helps to cover your back by providing a service which attempts to prevent under age users viewing adult material.

On a side note if you dont need the mod fine dont use it but dont go around calling mods pointless, at the end of the day you may not need it but someone else may, i wrote this mod a while back and 100+ installs dont seem to show it being pointless!

It is actually a great hack. something which I wish I had in some of my mods (vbtube etc.)

Is it possible to have a usergroup ignore the age permission?

Currently the only user group that is exempt is the admin's/mods, I've added that option to list of features for the next update,

Just what I needed. Tagged for future use. Sure, members can change their age but this is the internet we are talking about. How many people using your board will most likely sign up with their real birthdate? I think this mod is great and offer extra protection for mature area.

Installed, great mod thanks.

The plus side is when a member signs up they are more likely to post there real age then discover they need to be 18 to access that section.

With Adult sections you can never be 100% sure your letting in over 18's only, but as long as you are seen to be trying that is what is important.

Hell of a hack! requesting to integrate with DownloadsII. Tagged.

Can we have it like this please?
+ Minor will never see any adult corner. Any post or thread or forum. Not even from any search.
+Lets have an option under "Quick Links" for adults like, "Switch on/off Agelock". So that Adults also get chance to switch it ON in front of any minors from there family and later they can go back to switch it off.

I guess your right but i already pay for a facility that age checks people using their credit card details if they choose to enter 18+.

It's a pricey plugin but you cannot lie about your age then, after all i wouldnt want my kids to lie about their age and then see something they shouldnt causing a whole lot of problems.
