DESCRIPTION

Have you ever wanted your users to be able to define who exactly can view the information in any particular post? vS-Hide Hack Resurrection, a vBulletin expansion, features a set of handy tags that together give your users an opportunity to do just that:

[HIDE-POSTS]: defines the minimum number of posts required to read the content within.
[SHOWTOGROUPS]: defines the usergroups that may read the content within.
[HIDE-THANKS]*: defines that the content within may only be read after the person says thank you by pressing a special button. (Expanded Edition Only)
[HIDE-REPLY]*: defines that the content within may only be read after the person replies. (Expanded Edition Only)
[STU]: defines the users that may read the content within. (Expanded Edition Only)

*(1): The HIDE-THANKS tag comes with a full-featured Post Thank You System. See features for further details.
*(2): The HIDE-REPLY tag can be reversed to HIDE with just one easy switch of an admincp option.

INTRODUCTION

Why "Resurrection"?

The reason is simple: This hack has been written many times by various people, and nobody ever got their version working correctly.
This product presents a professional version written from scratch, and there are no backdoors through which hidden information can be illegally retrieved. Unlike other systems, this one works correctly with the vBulletin Post Cache.

Usage Syntax:

[HIDE]information[/HIDE]
Shortcut code, can be mapped to any of the below ones. By default, it is mapped to HIDE-POSTS.

[HIDE-POSTS=X]information[/HIDE-POSTS]
Information is not shown to people who have less than X posts. Has an alternative syntax: , where X is automatically set to the value defined in vBulletin options.

[HIDE-REPLY]information[/HIDE-REPLY] (Expanded Edition Only)
Information is not shown to people unless they reply.

[HIDE-THANKS]information[/HIDE-THANKS] (Expanded Edition Only)
Information is now shown to people unless they press "Thank You" button.

[HIDE-REPLY-THANKS]information[/HIDE-REPLY-THANKS] (Expanded Edition Only)
Information is not shown to people unless they either reply or press "Thank You" button.

[SHOWTOGROUPS=x]information[/SHOWTOGROUPS]
Information is not shown to people unless they are a member of the X usergroups, where X is a comma-separated list of usergroupids.

[STU=x]information[/STU]
Information is not shown to people unless they are a listed in X, where X is a comma-separated list of userids.

I have 4.1.6 right now. Saw they released 4.1.7.. will download and update. I have to find somewhere the procedure for update.. cause I'm completely new to vB.. I just switched from SMF.
Will try to modify those files, as it's written in 1st post.. at explanations.
Will come back here with some more questions if needed.
Thanks!

hello!

Have question (may be was asked already?) - There is option "Show hidden always" but I want it to work ONLY with [hide] content BUT NOT wit [showtogroups] or [stu] content. I have usergroup which need to get access to [hide] but be not able to see content hidden to other usergroups or users.

Thanks!

to make this plugin work in 4.1.x you need to add a custom bb code 'hide' to your vbulletin config through the admin cp

still need to figure out how to make the toolbar buttons appear, because that seems to have been broken while development of this mod stopped, and development of vbulletin continued aswell. but it definitely seems to work

Also note that we didn't have to hack 0 files for it to work on vB 4.1.7, just import the .xml, add the files from your upload folder, add a custom hide tag (or if you want everything, add all the tags) as a custom BB tag and off you go.

Yes, but the solution requires editing the mod. I think I posted my solution earlier in the thread. I will go back and review my adjustments to this mod that provide a truly hidden message capability. As distributed the mod is working as designed, which seems to be geared more towards quiz/testing with hints and such embedded. Nothing wrong with that at all, it just didn't fit my application.

More info: I went back and looked through my code to find where I addressed this. I also ran a few tests to confirm my memory. In my case I only have SHOWTOGROUPS enabled, and I have the HIDE tag mapped to SHOWTOGROUPS. The HIDE tag has no paramaters, which when mapped to SHOWTOGROUPS causes the strip_bbcode function to fail in replacing the text. to fix this I added a line of code containing the same regex found in the HIDE-POSTS tag. A note of explanation - the SHOWTOGROUPS tag will default to the groups configuration in the control panel unless specific parameters are entered.

In includes/vS_HHR_Engine.php find:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add above that line:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This will allow the system to recognize and properly process the SHOWTOGROUPS tag without any additional parameters. If you are using another tag and the hidden text isn't being stripped, then you need to look in the strip_bbcode function to see what is expected to happen.

On the other hand, before you go to a lot of work chasing all this down, make sure you are testing the quoted reply from a usergroup that doesn't have permissions to see the hidden text in the first place! I'm only saying this because I've made that error myself...

BTW, I do have this running on my test site with vB version 4.1.7 SP1 with my modifications. It appeared to work as intended without my mods. This was a clean install on vB 4.1.7, not an upgrade.

Ok.. this fix doesn't seem to work.
