Old Support Topics - Bug? Can't Change Vote To ALL In Forum Permissions

IP v53a

No matter which Forum-Permissions apps I use in the ACP I can't get any forum permissions to accept individual AUTH settings to change vote permissions from "REG" to "ALL" (Guests) in any forums?

I really do need permission for Guests to be able to vote in some forums - Can someone help me with this please?

far as I know it is not possible to vote by visitors.

This issue is from the original phpbb ....

Damn!

I'll have to check phpbbhacks and maybe see if there's something that I can use - Or try to find something else that is free-standing and can be clicked (Swapped) out to.



Otherwise I'll have to use this YaBB Forum:

yabb_poll

And is not really the way I wanted to go.

UPDATE:

This seems to work OK if you're NOT running serious polls, as it uses IP's rather than cookies!

But in ACP Forum / Permissions you have to use the third option to change the AUTH?

Permissions List
Permissions ADV
Permissions

Why the hell does Icy Phoenix need three forum-permission apps - Anyone would think that one would be enough?

MODIFIED FOR ICY PHOENIX ? 53a

Spoiler: [ Show ]

Cookies can be emptied... in this way users can vote several times... that is why IP is better.

I have created 3 to be able to edit multiple permissions at once... I firstly created them for my own needs, and then I thought they could have been useful for someone else.

Here is a quick explanation about the goal of each of them:
  • Permissions: the standard permissions system... you can edit one forum per time.
  • Permissions List: you can check every permissions on every forum... so you can have a quick overall view on permissions and change what you like with only one page... this can be useful if you have a lot of forums and don't want to reload tons of pages and also remember each setting.
  • Permissions Advanced: this feature is to quickly assign same permissions on multiple forums, very useful if you want to quickly review global permissions on some forums and apply the same all at once.


To be onest there is also a fourth place to edit permissions... and it is in Forums Extended (in new Icy Phoenix there will be only this one).

If you don't like having extra options, you just need to remove the PHP related file in ADM folder, and those modules will disappear next time you reload your ACP.
