here what I did:

I did choose a user, then entered the the thread ID like: 738 and the post ID like: 7738 then I did choose: Cannot view anything else on this board.
and specified the time like: 22 then clicked Proceed!

the first weired thing that I got is the next page that showed to me was the smilies page..

and the other thing which is the real problem is that it didn't force that user at all

I even tried with other users ans other threads and posts, I even entered the thread ID only,
and the post ID only.. I almost tried everything, but I couldn't get it to work in anyway..

did I miss something?
or do I have to set something?

any ideas?

thanks


I just installed it now on 3.7.2 PL1 after installing abe's other hack to force usergroups..

I got the same problems.. Proceed takes me to smiles info page and nothing is being forced


thanks


EDIT: Not only that.. but now I lost all my smiles on posting/editing.. they don't show up anymore.. oh well...

tested it on my friend's board and it works just fine..
only one problem, we couldn't translate the error message which is:
The administrator(s) of this board want you to view/read this thread/post before you can browse further through this forum.

we found it and translated it but when showing the message it still in English

and the other part of the message which is:
x seconds remaining before you can view those forum(s) on which the administrator(s) did not want to keep you clear of.
couldn't find it to translate it

how and where can we do that?

thanks for the really nice mod

Translate it directly in the product file , itīs some where at the bottom of the file, and re-import it via ACP.

thanks for the update..

what's new in the 1.22?

and I found that to translate the phrases I must translate them inside the template, not using the language manager..

check the template and see.

thanks again
