Conceal a forum from a unregistered user/Download doesn´t work anymore
May 19, 2017 04:21PM
Hi,
I hope someone can help me out:

I changed the settings of one forum to "No read" for Public Users to conceal it. Suddenly the download doesn´t work correct anymore for the registered users in this forum. The download actually works but all the downloaded files are only 8 or 9 KB large and cannot be opened.

Info:
We have registered and unregistered users of our forum. Usually the public users can read/download everything but not write, reply etc. I wanted to conceal one of the forums from unregistered users.

The general settings of all forums are:

Public Users (only read)
Registered Users (read, reply, edit their posts)

I only changed 2 settings for this forum:
- From "Use default forum settings" to No, I want to customize this forum´s settings"
- Unchecked the "Read" checkbox for Public Users.

Thank you!!
Simone

have a look at what is written in these 8 or 9 kb files, e.g. with a text editor.

Hi Thomas,

good idea, thanks.

It´s only HTML of the actual Phorum page where the file is linked as download. .. Phorum Header, no content within the body section and the usual Phorum footer. Nothing about the name of the file etc.

The only interesting part is
< div class="attention" >Read permission for file (id 205) denied.< /div >
although I´m a registered user and allowed to see/download the file.

May be the combination of hidden/not hidden für Public/registered user AND user groups with additional restrictions to see/not allowed to see some forums...is too complicated.
Sorry, only registered users may post in this forum.
