Okay, this should do the trick according to what your wishes were. You can totally forget worrying about setting Guest permissions for anything. You can revert all Guest permissions back to stock, and this modification alone will do the trick. Give it a shot and let me know if I got it right.

Open up your copy of ubbthreads.php in the root folder.

find:
PHP Code
	 // Does user have to be logged in?
		if (!isset($user['USER_ID']) || !$user['USER_ID']) {
			if (array_get($init, 'regonly', 0) == 1) {
				$fatal_error = true;
				$fatal_error_msg = "FATAL_NOT_LOGGED";
			} // end if
		} // end if 
replace with:
PHP Code
	 // Does user have to be logged in?
		if (!isset($user['USER_ID']) || !$user['USER_ID']) {
			if (($ubb != "newuser") && ($ubb != "faq") && ($ubb != "boardrules") && ($ubb != "login") && ($ubb != "logout") && ($ubb != "start_page") && ($ubb != "adduser")) {
				$fatal_error = true;
				$fatal_error_msg = "FATAL_NOT_LOGGED";
			} // end if
		} // end if 

find:
PHP Code
 if (isset($left_column_data['template'])) {
		smartyDisplay($left_column_data);
	} // end if
	if (isset($smarty_display['body'])) {
		// Need to set graemlin url based on the user's style
		$smarty->register_outputfilter("graemlin_url");
		smartyDisplay($smarty_display['body']);
	} // end if
	if (isset($right_column_data['template'])) {
		smartyDisplay($right_column_data);
	} // end if 
replace with:
PHP Code
 if ((isset($user['USER_ID'])) && ($user['USER_ID'])) {
		if (isset($left_column_data['template'])) {
			smartyDisplay($left_column_data);
		} // end if
	} // end if
	if (isset($smarty_display['body'])) {
		// Need to set graemlin url based on the user's style
		$smarty->register_outputfilter("graemlin_url");
		smartyDisplay($smarty_display['body']);
	} // end if
	if ((isset($user['USER_ID'])) && ($user['USER_ID'])) {
		if (isset($right_column_data['template'])) {
			smartyDisplay($right_column_data);
		} // end if
	} // end if 

Enjoy.

A hack is fine if people are willing to do so on each version change.
But the reason for my post in this forum was a suggestion to get this migrated into a permanent CP option.

Baby steps man, it takes more coding to integrate these things into the CP. I wanted to get this out to him as quickly as I could so he could begin implementing it. Once finals are over this week, I'll have more time to tinker with things. smile

Plus, you don't usually have to re-implement on version changes. I just pull up my copy of BeyondCompare and copy over the changed stock code, leaving my modifications alone.

i still advocate for modifying the stock ubbthreads.php and add some pre and post hooks in, so we don't need to modify ANY stock code at all!

we do the _run and _gpc now, but there should be a way to add in mods to the ubbt-engine...

that would allow easily added features in a ../add-ons directory and not interfere in upgrades..

right now, upgrades cause pain for this reason.. Beyond Compare makes it easier, but it's really something that isn't NECESSARY given a more flexible "ubb=xxx" engine wink

Unfortunately this hack apparently broke captcha, see https://www.ubbcentral.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/223119.html

So back to my original post.
Add this to the list.

Sorry about that. I do my testing on my laptop, and don't have ImageMagick or GD2 installed. I never use captcha on my Website, so I never thought to install either of those locally. Anywho, I made some changes that should fix it. Here are the entire instructions with the changes implemented.

Open up your copy of ubbthreads.php in the root folder.

find:
PHP Code
	 // Does user have to be logged in?
		if (!isset($user['USER_ID']) || !$user['USER_ID']) {
			if (array_get($init, 'regonly', 0) == 1) {
				$fatal_error = true;
				$fatal_error_msg = "FATAL_NOT_LOGGED";
			} // end if
		} // end if 
replace with:
PHP Code
	 // Does user have to be logged in?
		if (!isset($user['USER_ID']) || !$user['USER_ID']) {
			if (($ubb != "newuser") && ($ubb != "faq") && ($ubb != "boardrules") && ($ubb != "login") && ($ubb != "logout") && ($ubb != "start_page") && ($ubb != "adduser") && ($ubb != "captcha")) {
				$fatal_error = true;
				$fatal_error_msg = "FATAL_NOT_LOGGED";
			} // end if
		} // end if 

find:
PHP Code
 if (isset($left_column_data['template'])) {
		smartyDisplay($left_column_data);
	} // end if
	if (isset($smarty_display['body'])) {
		// Need to set graemlin url based on the user's style
		$smarty->register_outputfilter("graemlin_url");
		smartyDisplay($smarty_display['body']);
	} // end if
	if (isset($right_column_data['template'])) {
		smartyDisplay($right_column_data);
	} // end if 
replace with:
PHP Code
 if ((isset($user['USER_ID'])) && ($user['USER_ID'])) {
		if (isset($left_column_data['template'])) {
			smartyDisplay($left_column_data);
		} // end if
	} // end if
	if (isset($smarty_display['body'])) {
		// Need to set graemlin url based on the user's style
		$smarty->register_outputfilter("graemlin_url");
		smartyDisplay($smarty_display['body']);
	} // end if
	if ((isset($user['USER_ID'])) && ($user['USER_ID'])) {
		if (isset($right_column_data['template'])) {
			smartyDisplay($right_column_data);
		} // end if
	} // end if

Tested and verified that Captcha works with this method.

DLWebmaestro:

I opened things up this evening on my board and immediately ran into one more snag with this hack; I think it is probably the last one. I have e-mail verification turned on, and when the new member clicks on the verification link they get a fatal error. I'm back to using the stock code.

I think I know what I would need to add, but I would rather not guess, and the full code in this thread should be fixed anyway.

Thanks again for your work on this one!

Replace:
PHP Code
if (($ubb != "newuser") && ($ubb != "faq") && ($ubb != "boardrules") && ($ubb != "login") && ($ubb != "logout") && ($ubb != "start_page") && ($ubb != "adduser") && ($ubb != "captcha")) { 
with:
PHP Code
if (($ubb != "newuser") && ($ubb != "faq") && ($ubb != "boardrules") && ($ubb != "login") && ($ubb != "logout") && ($ubb != "start_page") && ($ubb != "adduser") && ($ubb != "captcha") && ($ubb != "verifyemail")) { 

Learning as we go! wink

I would fix the full code, but the edit time has long passed.

I'm working on getting this fully CPed down to all the nitty gritties.

I'll definitely be working on getting a hook system in for 8.0. I still have to figure out the nitty gritties, and then we'll need to figure out where all the hooks need to be, documented, etc.

Do we need to send some hand rolled cubans to Rick to speed up the process?

Rick can just go up to Canada to get some Cuban cigars any time he wants. Victoria is so beautiful.

Yes, I went there the one time I was in Seattle, the boat ride there was beautiful too - we must have seen 30-40 whales.

There be whales here. Quoted by Scotty from Star Trek.

One of these days I will make it out there. I would love to see those huge mammals.

I split this unsupported modification from the feature request that it was originally tacked on to; the original thread can be found here
