Age based premissions for registering and viewing forums
Mod Version: 1.00, by Xoligy (Member) Xoligy is offline
Developer Last Online: Mar 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.4 Rating: (4 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 123
Released: 10 Jan 2007 Last Update: 10 Jan 2007 Downloads: 487
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Is in Beta Stage  

This is based on this 3.5 plug-in. Although it uses the same hook locations and similar phrases, I ended up recoding it so none of the original code is used. To install simply download and install the XML file via the Plugin & Product manager. You can then alter the registration requirements via the vBulletin Settings option and the minimum age to view a specific forum by editing it using the forum manager - again it should appear near the bottom.

New features:
  • Updated for vBulletin 3.6.4 (should work on 3.6.x)
  • More accurate (the previous only checked month and year).

Original features:
  • Specify minimum age required to register.
  • Limit access to forums based on age.

Disclaimer:
Because users can lie about their age, this many not fulfil the legal requirements for adult content. I accept no responsibility for how this is used.

You're free to do what you like with this code, although credit is appreciated, it's not required.

Don't worry, I have it fixed on localhost, I just need to add the guest cookie idea before releasing an update.

I've uploaded the XML via the Product & Plugin menu, do I also have to upload it to my includes/xml folder?
If not, where are the config options for it in AdminCP?

No you don't.

How does this affect crawling from the search engines? Does the age restricted forums get indexed as well?

Presently the forums are hidden from the members below x years of age.

Can you please modify so that the forums can be shown to the members but they should get the "underage message" when they click on the link.

Switched from AgeLock to this mod because your mod hides the forums from people who can't access them, which, IMHO, is a very good thing.
I do think, however, you should:
1) Have an option to filter the other way, and only let people with a *maximum* age into a certain forum.
2) Have an option to choose whether forums which one cannot access due to age are hidden or displayed but generate an error on click.
