    XF 2.2 Can I customise the 'you do not have permission' message?

    I did, and he was (as always). What worked for me (just in case any other VaultWiki users find their way here in future): set permissions so the user can view the wiki index page (but nothing else), and then create a notice with usergroup criteria to catch those who don't have access, and Page...

    XF 2.2 Can I customise the 'you do not have permission' message?

    I use VaultWiki, and it has a different permissions system so I have no idea how to replicate the 'can view forum, can't view content' permission that makes the notice appear. I'll need to ask their support. I'm going to update first - wish me luck.

    XF 2.2 Can I customise the 'you do not have permission' message?

    That would be very kind, but I'll try Alan's suggestion of changing permissions first. The funny thing is that when the error message is displayed, the url in the browser address bar is still that of the forum you can't access. So you'd think it would 'know where you are', as it were. I will...

    XF 2.2 Can I customise the 'you do not have permission' message?

    They're specific forums - and there are two membership levels, so the conditions get a bit complicated: if you're trying to access forum x and you're not part of a or b, show this; if you're trying to access forum y and you're not part of b, show this. Could you help with that? (And should I be...

    XF 2.2 Can I customise the 'you do not have permission' message?

    Alas, tried this and the notice doesn't appear. Notices in general will appear on these 'do not have access' pages, but as soon as I introduce a 'page is within nodes' criterion, the notice disappears. I think the 'forbidden' page must not count as being 'within' the node, despite the url. :(...

    Notices show on the 'no access' page? Oh, fantastic. That's exactly what I need, thank you.

    XF 2.2 Can I customise the 'you do not have permission' message?

    Very good idea, thank you! I've jumped in and done that, and yes, it is possible to add links. (Any way of making it specific to the forum, so I could send people directly to buy the thing they're interested in?)

    XF 2.2 Can I customise the 'you do not have permission' message?

    I'd like my free members to upgrade to access paid-for resources. But at the moment, if they speculatively click on a link to one of these to see what it's all about, they see, Dead end. It would be nice to replace that with some directions explaining how they can access it. Is there a feature...

    Add-on Update request button

    My forum would greatly benefit if people returned more reliably to threads they have started, to update us on how things turned out. I'm wondering if something could be set up to allow members to 'nudge' one another for updates. Maybe something next to the 'like' and 'report' buttons, that would...

    Easier file upload

    The post editor on Xenforo is tremendously user-friendly for uploading images: drag and drop from the file system, or copy and paste. Can we please have this functionality in the Media Gallery?

    Media gallery questions

    That makes sense, but you can embed things from external sites, and you can't drag and drop or copy and paste files to upload them from your own computer. I'm going to look for a place to send a feature suggestion. They've already programmed it for the post editor, after all.

    Media gallery questions

    True... but it's still really primitive and clunky compared to adding images to a thread :( .

    Media gallery questions

    And a post-sales question. In forum threads, you can add images to posts with copy-paste, or by pasting a url, or even with drag and drop. Lovely. But with the dedicated media gallery, it seems all you can do is upload. Surely there must be another way?
