Hack Support

This hack is now discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates, nor will support be provided as the thread is no longer monitored. You can now check out the 3.8.x version of this hack, as it also works with v3.7.5, v3.6.12 (and maybe even earlier versions).

Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with v3.6.10 and v3.7.x. This has not been tested with earlier versions of v3.6.x, but should work.


What Does This Hack Do?

This is an update of my v3.6.x hack available here.

This simple hack adds usergroup permissions for which Usergroups can view the Forum Leaders page. If a Usergroup does not have permission to view the Forum Leaders page then they will recieve a custom vBulletin no permissions message, and it will also remove the View Forum Leaders link on the forumhome page.

This hack was created because I liked the idea of the request in this thread.

There are no file or template changes at all and is fully phrased.

AdminCP settings for this hack available in vBulletin Options > View Forum Leaders Based On Usergroup Permissions.
Settings that can be changed are:
  1. Enable/disable this hack
  2. Usergroup permissions - which groups will be able view the Forum Leaders page (no usergroups can view the Forum Leaders page by default)


Installation Instructions
  1. Import ms_leaders_ugp.xml into vB using the AdminCP Product Manager. If upgrading then set Allow Overwrite to Yes.
  2. Alter the settings in the Admin CP to your liking.
Note: If you want to change the custom error message that is displayed, you will need to edit the nopermission_forum_leaders phrase, please ensure that {1}, {2} and {3} are left intact, they represent stylevar[right], forumhome url and the current session url respectively.

Uninstall Instructions
  1. Uninstall the product in vB using the AdminCP Product Manager.

Installed! Works great but my question is how many other php files like showgroups.php don't I know about that I consider a huge security hole in vbulletin! That damn file shows all your users to the world. I run a locked forum.

So anyone know what other php files can be directly linked to that show critical information like this?

Mosh,

I have no idea how possible this idea is, but could you add the option of not showing the link at all, unless they're a member of the allowed groups? I find that much more intelligent than allowing them to click a link and then reprimanding them for clicking said link.
