Tutorial

So you don't want visitors / guests to see your Orca Forums at all.

This has been asked here at this site, as well as at Unity many times. I noticed it being asked a few times recently so I thought I'd write this quick one up.

This is fast and simple.

This is based on Dolphin 6.1x but a similar process might be applied for other versions.

I shouldn't have to say it by now, but...back up the original file before making any changes.

Then open the file:
/orca/xml/design.php

The code is already there, you just need to change one little piece.

Find near the top:

if ( !( $logged['admin'] = member_auth( 1, false ) ) )
{
    if ( !( $logged['member'] = member_auth( 0, false ) ) )
    {
        if ( !( $logged['aff'] = member_auth( 2, false ) ) )
        {
            $logged['moderator'] = member_auth( 3, false );
        }
    }
}


Change To:

if ( !( $logged['admin'] = member_auth( 1, false ) ) )
{
    if ( !( $logged['member'] = member_auth( 0, true ) ) )
    {
        if ( !( $logged['aff'] = member_auth( 2, false ) ) )
        {
            $logged['moderator'] = member_auth( 3, false );
        }
    }
}



Save file and re-upload overwriting the original and you are done.

Now make sure you are not logged in ad a member or admin and simply visit yoursite.com/orca

You should be prompted to login before you can access that page.
