We intend to evaluate phpNuke for our private members site. Now we have a hard coded php system. Once someone has access they are assigned to one of the following groups: Guest, Member, Manager, Staff, Administrator. Permissions are usually assigned on individual links by group but sometimes by individual member. Can something like this be done in phpNuke? Tks in advance.

NSN Groups should handle what you want to do. Get it at Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! . You will see NSN Groups 1.5.0 RC2 which if for PHP-Nuke 6.5-7.4 . I will be releasing the NSN Groups 1.5.0 Finial this week for PHP-Nuke 6.5-7.5 as well.

Bob, is it possible to get rid of all other groups like PHPbb and default PHP-Nuke and have only one group sytem for the whole site?

I mean it's possible but something that takes less time to do that.

Yes and no, NSN Groups could be recoded to use the phpBB groups or phpBB could be recoded to use NSN Groups. Either of these would take quite a bit of time Sad The best I could say is that NSN Groups could be coded to use it's group tables and the phpBB tables in concert with each other, which would still take quite a bit of coding.

As for the native PHP-Nuke groups, those are a copy of the PALidin points/groups system from a couple of years ago. The fore runner to NSN Groups which are not much more then a way to bloat your site's hit counter.

I also forgot to point out NSN GR Downloads that is written to use NSN Groups. It allows you to set permissions by group f who can download and/or upload per category and file.

See here is why I asked you this question, I managed to get PAL-Groups working with most of the site with 7.4 eg: who can see what blocks and modules from PHPbb groups just like NSN groups but there are still few features that are missing from BB groups like e-mail a single and/or multiple groups, add subscribtions and add functions to Downloads and WebLinks modules like what group can download what files.
I was thinking if I change some code from NSN Groups module and add some extra cells in nuke_users table, we might be able to pull this off since it's less code to edit than editing whole PHP-Nuke AND PHPbb script and I think I might be able to show you the code sometime by the end of this weekend but what's stoping me is your code isn't GPL but you have been very good with giving permissions to edit and redistribute your code with permissions. Should I just e-mail you for the permissions as usual or this forum post can be count as a request too?

Oh and I did find some features I am talking about in CPG-Nuke which is released under GPL but I am scared of even looking at the code since DjMaze is very famous about blaming people for stealing his code without even bother looking at the code.

If you can make a workable modification and keep the original credits intact I have no problem with you making modifications to NSN Groups. I'd even like to see it submitted to my downloads once you finish it.

Bob,
I have installed the 1.5.0 Final on top of a virgin 7.5 patched (2.6) version, including database. I have been able to set up groups, assign users to groups, assign modules to groups. However, when I login with the various users I have set up for testing purposes, I am not getting any of the modules to show up that are set as "For Groups Only".

I modified the code per the readme.txt so that at least as Admin I can see all modules just to verify that that functionality works.

What could I be missing? Seems too simple of a configuration and test for it not to work right.

TIA,
montego
P.S. How does one get forums over on NukeScripts? I would have thought that I could find forums over there to discuss issues like these since that is where I thought the original download is from?

Send me an email at webmaster(at)nukescripts(dot)net . I may need login via ftp to take a look see if you trust me enough to do so.

On the forums, the forums on my site at present are Client Support only (NSN PayPal and NSN Banner Clients). However I'm thinking of closing out NukeGalaxy.net and setting up a second set of forums on my site for general support.

Can you use NSN Groups to control features of the site instead of modules?

For instance if I wanted to add the forums "ignore users" feature, could I use something like a php "if" statement in the code that displays the link for someone in a NSN Group "else" echos a message like "to use the ignore users feature, upgrade membership".
