I would like to ask a permissions questions please, not sure how it goes but will try.

I currently have a user group / permissions for over 18 that part is fine for those members logged in and wanting to join that user group, now to add this so that guests or normal members can view this user group if they choose to select the agreement is fine.

But what I think I would need to do then is set those groups now to be viewed by guests / normal members then overlay this mod to the top is that correct ? if not I am thinking even if a guest or normal user select this it would not allow permission to see based on the pre set user group levels.

That part I think is fine as I can set the groups to guests / members with this mod on top, but my next question is with updates based on user groups in the side bar, currently to see adult updates you need to be in that group, but now if above is correct and I will need to set the forum permissions to guest / member then will these updates become visible to all or does the permission set of this mod restrict those updates from showing in the side bar unless they have accepted the agreement.

Thanks
Pete

Hello,


thank you for your message, but I must say I don't understand it well about you're asking:[list=1] [*]new option in this mod, [*]bug [*]something else.


[/list]




OK I am sorry for being unclear, First I have purchased this hook and it is brilliant and works well, my question relates to the overall board permission settings, and in particular the inclusion of things like latest posts in the side bar etc.

To explain this further if i have a forum that is set for example with adult content / 18+ material and to apply your hook I would place the restrictions on what would normally be a visible forum for guests / users and such with the allow latest posts updates set / and other hooks mods with permission settings these updates would be seen as a latest post as an example.

However once you apply your hook and restrict that forum to a I agree permission then what should happen with the permission settings is that any latest posts from that forum / s or permission settings per say should not be seen unless they have agreed to the permission setting, where at which point if they have agreed they would be viewable.

Currently this is not the case and if I have a restricted forum using your hook the latest posts are still seen in the various apps / permission settings, yes I understand that I could probably switch those updates off on those forums but by doing that I would loose the promotional benefit of latest posts / topics etc in the side panel.

I am not sure if it would be easy to add follow permission settings to the hook but if it can be in the next upgrade that would be great. / as it is now you can have the forum restricted before permission is granted but content is visible through the latest post / topics.

Will check it (hope soon) and if it would be possible in quite fast I'll add it, but can't promise you anything now. I'm very very (very!!) busy with other things..

Thankyou - I Have one more question that I hope you can help me with please - I noticed by accident really tonight in checking visitors online that the google bot was reading one of the posts that was included into the permission zone ? so does this also not block the google bot permissions as well ?

This in my mind should not happen as now forums that were originally intended for those over 18 and including not having google bots read and list the information google is reading this stuff as a guest ? it seems even though a guest must accept first the bot / search engines do not seem to have to have permission ? is this correct ?

This works only when the visitor is in restricted group, due to this code:

if( in_array( $this->memberData['member_group_id'], explode(',', IPSText::cleanPermString( $this->settings['dp3_fei_groups'] ) ) ) )



So if google or any other bot won't be in any of mentioned groups then will be able to view any forum.

I can add option to disable access for bots - just let me know.

? given that it is meant for a restricted 18+ forum that option if it were available would be a great addition but low stress and happy when you next update, with or with out it is a great hook.

Thanks for your support

Hello,

I just contact you because I have noticed that your mod is only adapted to the forum, and I'd like to know if it would be possible or if it is already planned to adapt it to the gallery ?

Best regards,
Atsuki.

Hello,
for now no - there is no any description about other IPS apps. Maybe in future, but my time is very (!) limited now to any new options for my paid apps. Only support and bugfixes have high priority (as always).

Hum, I see... So I suppose you wouldn't do that, even if it includes another purchase from my part ?
Eventhough you can't do these modifications, would you have an idea about how I could proceed ?

Why joke? I don't know where it would be exactly.. I'm working on other upgrades for my paid mods, so this new request must wait.




This is a paid mod / and I really can not roll out and use it while giggle can read the information as I want to list escort services and other 18+ related adult services that should not be read by any one without correct permissions.

I asked nicley when the suggested update would be done and sorry if I misread the reply, it is just not a reply I would give any client asking a proper question hence I thought you must be joking, a reply "when it is ready" really does not let me plan ahead in any way.

I prefer to just move on, if it get s updated thats good, if not I will look at another way to achieve this, thanks for your reply.

Just an update here, with the help of some people a bit more knowledgeable than myself we were able to make some checks and despite my initial fears that the giggle bot was getting and reading this information, we have now seen that this on the surface this is not the case and the giggle bot is met with the please confirm page meaning that giigle can not read behind these permissions.

This is my error in thinking that giggle could see behind the wall and in that I openly apologise for any confusion caused and thank dawPi for a great mod.
