I'm using PP 4.7j with PHPNuke 7.1 (i.e. phpbb2.0.6)
so i've been trying to set up the "member's gallery" category to be only visible to a registered user. to that end i've a usergroup called "user" that i setup as a "closed" group ... meaning only registered users ought to be able to see it. as well i configured the "member's gallery" category to only allow access by "users" and "Admin"
problem is that anonymous people can still see this gallery and it's thumbnail contents ... although they can not view. i wanted to avoid this ... and think i'm configuring something wrong ... any thoughts?
still curious about this topic? Haven't moved anywhere since 1 initial response. Problem is that i can't seem to figure out why an anonymous user can see all photos (note: i do not want to enable option "require users to be registered to view photos" ... speaking of which even with this option enabled an anonymous user is still able to see all the thumbnails in a category that he is NOT even supposed to see).
Let me give you some details:
usergroup name? | Anonymous | Admin | moderator | users
admin access? | no | yes | no | no
mod access? | no | yes | no | no
allow uploads? | no | yes | yes | yes
allow comments? | no | yes | yes | yes
require moderation? | no | no | no | no
allow edit own photos? | no | yes | yes | yes
allow edit own posts? | no | yes | yes | yes
allow albums? | no | yes | yes | yes
my sub-category titled "Brasil" has these usergroup "access permissions" configured:
1. These checked usergroups can view images in this category. (only "Admin" is checked)
2. These checked usergroups can upload to this category, unless a usergroup's overall upload access is disabled. (only "Admin" is checked)
3. These checked usergroups can post to this category, unless a usergroup's overall posting access is disabled. (only "Admin" is checked)
and yet when an anonymous user opens the gallery they are able to see the thumbnails and photos for everything in that category?
i tried using member "ablums", thinking that then an anonymous user shouldn't be able to view a member's photos ... the only way that i could prevent an anonymous user from viewing was to add passwords to categories.
What usergroup id # is the anonymous usergroup? It should be group #1. If not, you'll need to modify the /forums/postnuke.php file line 250 to match that group id number.
photopost.usergroup table lists the "Anonymous" user as group_id=1, whereas in the nuke.nuke_bbgroups table there is no "anonymous" user! I don't think that having no user in bb is an issue, since when i click on the "Refresh usergroup" link, it always ensures that i have the default "Anonymous" and "Admin" users for photopost.
