Thread Blocker by BOP5 - Block usergroup access to specific threads
Mod Version: 1.2.0, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 22
Released: 26 Aug 2011 Last Update: 11 Dec 2012 Downloads: 94
Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

Version 1.2.0: Added blocking by thread prefix
1.1 - Added block by userid
1.0 - Initial Release

I know the best way to control access to threads is via built in permissions and promotions systems however some times for special circmstances there are just certain threads you want to block from certain people- maybe from guests for example. What this mod does is make it easy to block some specific threadids from usergroups you specify. Simple and effective. The users without permission will see an error message saying they don't have access to that particular thread.

1 Plugin and 1 Global Phrase: bop5tb_noaccess - This is the error message others will see when attempting to view a thread.

Working on vBulletin 3.8.7- 4.1.5 and should work on all VB 3.6.x and up including all 4.x versions.

Demo (on VB 4,x forum- but same code):
Blocked Thread: http://www.qapla.com/mods/showthread...ew-this-thread.
Unblocked Thread in same forum: http://www.qapla.com/mods/showthread...la-Demos-Forum

I have a football game thread each Sunday which can slow the forum down to a crawl since hundreds of people are posting and refreshing it. My members complain so I'm trying this today to see if blocking guests to the thread helps keep things running smoother. I'll post the results.

UPDATE: This worked very well. No complaints of server load issues from my members and many guests decided to register. For anyone who has a forum with a very active thread which slows their server, this is a must.

Nice Mod.

It'd be Nice Also to be Able to Specify for Each Thread the Usergroups that Can't Access, (Of Course Admins and Moderators should be Able to See All the the Threads Always).

Adding an Option on the Thread Info for the Usergroups (Separated by Commas), and Perhaps Adding an Option for the Thread Starter (and Admins and Moderators) to Edit those Usergroups, that Way for Each Thread this Block can be Also Specified Individually.

My Best Regards.

Nice idea, but its just and only working for the first time. After that the specified usergroup(s) are blocked for all threads, even when you delete the given thread id in the configuration. Then you have to disable the whole modification for giving them access to all other threads as well.

I've been using this Mod for a long time, never seen this issue.

The issue, i think, is vbseo?

Someone using this with vbseo installed?

Did you only just now start using this with latest update? If so you may have indeed found a flaw in the updated version.

Here's the original product attached, see if this works for you. The update had to do with thread prefix IDs, and maybe VBSEO isn't compatible with that?
