View Full Version : How to BLOCK select categories from showing
November 11th, 2013, 12:04 AM
I want to HIDE selected categories from my users. I assumed selecting ONLY "ADMINISTRATOR" for "These checked usergroups can view images in this category." would mean that all OTHER than the ADMINISTATOR (ADMINISTRATOR FORUM USERGROUP) would be blocked from seeing the selected categories and only the ADMINISTRATOR would be able to see them.
However if I log off and view the gallery as a GUEST I can see all those categories that I selected "ADMINISTRATOR" as the only usergroup able to "view images.."..

If you edit a category and only administrators can view it then when viewing the index you should not be able to see it and likewise even if you know the category id and go to it by tryping the category url in the browser you should get a message saying you do not have permission to view it.
make sure your truly logged out as I would think personally you were not logged out.

If i UNSELECTED ALL usergroups in the "These checked usergroups can view images in this category." then the category will be HIDDEN.
However if I select "ADMINISTRATOR", it will display to ALL including GUESTS.. If I LOG OFF where the admin link dissappears and all the logged in features are no longer available
"Profile", "Upload photos", "My Photos", "My Albums", & "My Favorites".. It still displays which shouldn't because the only usergroup is ADMINISTRATOR and if you are not logged in, you aren't anything except perhaps a guest.
It's tied to phpbb if that helps.

That sounds to me like your usergroups are not aligned correctly to your forum.
