BoardPassword Mod
Jan 16th, 2011 at 5:12pm

I installed Yabb 2.5 on my new site. I tried to install the BoardPassword mod that worked great on Yabb 2.1. It fails to install, most likely because  a lot of the code has changed.
I need one forum to be password protected. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Bob B.

Hi,

It hasn't actually been updated for YaBB 2.5, but there is a version YaBB 2.4 here:

http://www.boardmod.org/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1240071053

There wasn't really that many code changes between 2.4 and 2.5, so it should be easy enough to get working.

Thanks. Just tried it and got 3 errors. I think I can find the code it is looking for but not sure how to change it in the mod itself.

I guess I could go into the forum code and make the 35 changes required....yuk!
Would be nice if the next version of yabb incorporates this mod in the cod.

You could just open the .mod file in a text editor and replace the code which can't be found.

If you can't get the mod file working, then that would be the way to go. It doesn't take as long as you might think.

You can always make a feature request. Smiley

Thanks for all the help guys and for including it in a future update.
Guess I should have requested it a few versions back. Smiley

Another one I need is board template mod. This allows you to have different templates for each board.
Any chance of adding this on the next update?
