vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (15 votes - 4.73 average) Installs: 69

Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations  

Reason why I wrote this mod

When vB4 gold comes out, I'd like to switch to it, get my forums working first and foremost. While that work is going on, I have content authors that need to create content, but I don't want this done on a live site where my users can see them working. I also need to skin the CMS, etc.

Once things are skinned, content is written, all of that. I want to simply "turn it on" and everything is live and ready to go.

What this mod does
  • Allows you to set usergroups that can access your CMS.
  • If a user is not of this usergroup, they are forwarded to the forums.php page.
  • It will not display the "Home" button on the tabnav if the user is not in the allowed usergroups list as well.
Notes

Thanks


BirdOPrey5, for updating the mod to work with vb 4.2 as well as fixing some other issues. I'm no longer supporting the mod and the code is reusable and I've updated the download to reflect his code/changes.

To Lynne for telling me what I needed to do when I asked the question, but not specifically telling me how to do it (doing it for me). Learning is fun, sometimes.

Since this is Re-Usable code here is an update for 4.2.0.

It also fixes a bug where for me at least it wasn't working with multiple allowed usergroups. Now it does.

I upped the version number to 2.0.

You can install like any other upgrade (allow overwrite = yes).

NO MANUAL EDITS NEEDED.

The OP can feel free to re-edit this code and/or put this in the first post.

Outstanding, thanks for taking this on BOP5, It's great to have this available for 4.2.0! Also, thanks for fixing the problem with multiple user groups. I had gotten around this by creating a CMS-Users usergroup and assinging to it only the people who needed to see it but it's nice that I now no longer need to do that!

I've updated the OP with the new XML and removed the manual edits in the installation instructions. Thanks BirdOPrey5 for updating/fixing the mod as I no longer support it/remember much about vB modding. =)

You're Welcome but Just FYI the one I released is only for VB 4.2.0 and above, it won't work on older versions. I suggest you keep your original version available as well.
