Users unregistered viewing protected images?
My user groups are set that only registered members are allowed to view posts. If a guest comes in he sees only thumbnails. Upon clicking on the thumbnail he is asked to register. After submitting all the information, email is sent to him and blah blah. But He/she are able to see pictures after just submitting their info and have not yet verified their email. Is this normal?

Yes because he is registered just not confirmed. He still is not able to do anything. Much like an unconfirmed forum user on a forum. Now he is logged in and has a username
Content visible to verified customers only.

Chuck yet he is able to view full size pictures? How is Unregistered user allowed to do that when Allow only Registered users to view pictures is checked?
The users status is Unregistered in the DB. And shows as such.

He is registered just not confirmed remember the only reason he is unconfirmed is because your using email confirmation.
Unregistered is never registered.

Chuck but logically if a member is required to confirm email to become REGISTERED.
And only REGISTERED members are allowed to view full pictures.
How can unregistered members have that ability?
Is there a mod for this?

Well not really look at vbulletin. We do it the same way as a forum
If I register in vb I can see the threads I just can not post or reply. Much the same way we do it with a user whom registers.
I am not aware of any mods but you can feel free to check out the mod forums.

Any update on this? I'm getting tons of bogus registrations like email@example.com
and so on since i made registration mandatory.
There needs to be a way to block unconfirmed users from viewing full size images. Perhaps a snippet of code to define which vBulletin user groups can view full size images? Chuck?
|Chuck S ||February 10th, 2006 02:33 PM |
well may this in showphoto.php add in bold
Content visible to verified customers only.

I tried it, but it doesn't seem to work. :(
|Chuck S ||February 12th, 2006 07:42 PM |
3 is the uncomfirmed users usergroup add this in bold
get_userinfo( "" , $User['userid'] );
|tommyxv ||February 13th, 2006 12:43 AM |
Cool, it worked! Thanks!

bogus registrations like firstname.lastname@example.org
and the ability for 'unconfirmed users' to view photos is not an ideal situation - just makes it easy work for unscrupulous people to steal photos from the galleries.
Please can this be 'fix' implimented as standard in the next version of PhotoPost and fix the following:
'Unconfirmed users' get the following message when attempting to view photos: "You must be a registered user to view images! To register click on the REGISTER button in the menu above." - This is misleading to users who aren't aware of the difference between 'unconfirmed' and 'registered' users and just leads to unnecessary emails saying 'I'm getting a message telling me to register but I have already registered - what's going on?'

I am sure they will add that, but just add that code above. It works perfectly. I changed that message to:
You must be a registered user to view images!
To register click on the REGISTER button in the menu above.
You must reply to the confirmation email to complete your registration.

If the developers include it in the code then everyone that uses PhotoPost benefits and it's one less bit of code to change in the event of an upgrade (for those that have implimented the change).
What file did you edit to change the message (just want to make sure I edit the coorect file)?
|tommyxv ||November 6th, 2006 02:14 PM |
Chuck, do i still need to add this edit to 5.5? I just upgraded from 5.3.
|Chuck S ||November 6th, 2006 04:45 PM |
This is a hack of course you would add this ;)
