Hack Description

This is a cutdown version of the user authentication and access control system I use on the non vB pages on my website.

This uses the vB 3.5 login system to log you in and out. It allows you to move between your forums and other pages on your site while remaining logged in.

It allows you to do things such as restrict pages by usergroup, display different content depending on a user being logged in or not.
For example, you can have banner Adds displying to non members only, and/or let members access to specific content.

Ive cut it down to the bare minimum that it needs to work, no fancy stuff such as avatars, PM's, or even formating.

I will try and offer support, but work and family commitments mean I dont have much free time.

This code is a mix of my own, and pieces I have used from other hacks that are floating around.

This script has been confirmed as working on
  • vB 3.5.x - All Versions

I am getting the error

Line: 469
Char: 1
Error: Expected '('
Code: 0

And I think I narrowed it down to this line:

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

It has to be this though
onfocus=if (this.value == '$vbphrase[username]') this.value = '';

Does anyone know what that does?

Well, I have removed the line, and no problems. I would like to know what it does though.

I cant see how the script causes that error.

I think that there is something else on your page, that in combination with the script produces that error.

Note for people having problems with Paths.

Put the following code on a page all by its self.

Name the page something like findpath.php and place in your forums root directory.
browse to the page and it will display the exact path to your forums root.

If I do the above, I get the following: /home/racett56/public_html/forums

I think I'm having path problems. Can you post up a little tutorial on directorys and the chdir command?

I can get the page to load without any errors but it never shows me as "logged in". It always presents the login prompts as if I'm not logged in. If I use the prompts to login, the vB welcome screen briefly displays then shows the login prompts again.

1st, in the file login_inc.php ensure that you have changed the 4 paths so that "www.yoursite.com" refers to your domain.

Then on the page you want to include the login use this code:

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

Note: This assumes on the 4th line that you have placed the file login_inc.php in your websites root directory (that is where you would have index.html or index.php)

Hope this helps.

The file with the access control code in it is located in '/home/racett56/public_html/rtdb'. I simply added the three lines to the begining of an existing non-forum related .php file.

The login_inc.php is located in '/home/racett56/public_html'.

The forums are located in '/home/racett56/public_html/forums'.

I changed everything to what you suggested and I still get the same thing as before. The login prompts appear at the top of the screen when accessing the .php file. If I fill in the prompts and hit 'Log in', the vBulletin welcome screen appears for a second or two. Then it takes me back to the exact same screen with the login prompts at the top. It seems like this $vbulletin->userinfo['userid']!=0 is false even after I login.

BTW... thanks for the fast response!

If I move the access controled file to the forums directory, it works fine. What do I need to change to get it to work from another directory?

I fixed it. Here's how:

AdminCP -> vBulletin Options -> Cookies and HTTP Header Options -> Path to Save Cookies

I changed the 'Suggested Settings' dropdown from '/forums/' to '/'

I keep getting

Unable to add cookies, header already sent.
File: /home/shadowl/public_html/v3/index.php
Line: 17


I've tried clearing cookies, cache etc, nothing changed, any ideas?

You need to remove all lines or spaces before these block of code.
It must go at the very top of the page.
