Hi,

As I needed for my job kind of a private forum, I've hacked the forum code a bit (in a different way than the previous thead...Smile.

Here is what I propose:

*** Registration isn't granted automatically (say after email confirmation) but now, needs a moderator's authorization. Mechanism: once the confirmation email is received and the confirmation via the given URL done, a authorization email is sent to all moderators. This email contains info on the new user and an URL, similar to the confirmation email one's. To grant authorization, a moderator only need to go to this URL. I think this way was easier than a registration queue as proposed in the suggestions forum.
-> changes made:
. add an authorization key (auth_key in fud_users table) to the DB.
. change emailconf.php, users_reg.inc, admuser.php... to play with this new key.

*** bug fixes: can't access forum with anonymous viewing set to NO with a user whose registration isn't complete anymore.

*** restricts view of "Logged in users list" to user with completed registration.



Work may need to be done to modularize this stuff using the control panel rather than XEmacs.


In attachment, a patch file.
to apply patch:

$ tar xvfz forum-v1.2.4.tar.gz
$ cd forum_install
$ patch -p1 < ../forum-v1.2.4-privateforum.patch

Pierre.

Thanks for the patch, small note the security bug that allows non-confirmed users to see posts in forums where anon viewing is disabled has been added yesterday to the CVS tree.
It affects the following files:
thread.php,msg.php,tree.php,showposts.php,search.php,selmsg.php

New modification:

Somebody asks me to add some code so that an email is sent to the user when his registration has been granted.

Done. So here is a new patch against the v1.2.4 forum release.
to apply patch:

$ tar xvfz forum-v1.2.4.tar.gz
$ cd forum_install
$ patch -p1 < ../forum-v1.2.4-privateforum-3.patch

Somebody asked so here is my answer:

Only the last patch is to be applied as every patches is a diff with the 1.2.4 release.

to install the patched version:

1- download release 1.2.4
2- untar it
3- download ths last patch
4- gunzip it
5- go to the forum_install dir
6- issue a "patch -p1 < forum-v1.2.4-privateforum-3.patch"

You're now ready to perform a normal install: cp the install file and install the forum from your browser.

I'm guessing that this patch does not work against the current release of FUDforum. Is there an updated patch? I need the ability to moderate registrations with the current release of FUDforum.

Has this functionality been included in the recent version yet?
If not, can this patch be safely applied to the current version (fudforum2_20030106)?

thanks!
I am pretty anxious to be able to use this.
