Rcent Topics Permissions

Post by dart »

Hello,
How can I set 'recent topics' to show for guests.
I have gusets & Anonymous set to view recents but is only works if logged in.

Hi
In the ACP, click on the green cogwheel for this module, there you can set the permissions for this module.

If the guests have no permision to read topics you can see also no recent topics.

That is the point - guests are configured in permission to see topics - but the recent topics is not visible to them.
Only if logged are the recent topics visible.
Guests are not logged in.
The portal is visible to guests - but not recent topics in the portal.

You must give the guests the permission "Can read forum".
Alternate:
If you want guests to see Recent topics when they only have the "Can see topics" right, then you need to do the following:
Open: root//ext/board3/portal/modules/recent.php
Find 4x: f_read and replace 4x with f_list_topics

I replaced the 4x f_read with f_list_topics and is still not showing for guests... I waited a few hours to see if all refreshes but unfortunately not.

Go to ACP/Permissions/Group forum permissions select guests and Select a forum, click on "Advanced Permissions" and set "Can see forum" and "Can see topics" on the Actions tab to yes.
