Purpose of Mod

This mod is intended for those with open access to their TNG site but who wish to disable access to media and other selected files for non-registered users. It allows access to the selected files only for logged-in users. If a non-logged-in user tries to access the relevant file they will see a template-formatted page that informs them they are not authorised to view that file and a links to the Home page and Previous page.

NOTE: The mod does not currently inhibit access to PDF media

Mod Developer

The Mod Developer is Graham Chamberlain.

Mod Manager config files provided by Graham Chamberlain.

Automated Installation

  1. Download the appropriate file for your TNG version from the download links in the mod summary area in the upper right.
  2. Extract the downloaded zip file to your 'mods folder.
  3. Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the appropriate source_title_display.cfg file.

Further Application / Customisation

The principles used in the directives of this mod to limit access also can be applied to other files.

Additional links can be provided for the Restriction Warning page by appropriately editing mods/restrict_access/noaccess.php and then reinstalling the mod.

The cfg file can be edited to suit the user's requirements:
1. add or remove directives for affected files: Access Log, All Media, Anniversaries & Dates, Calendar, Notes and Sources
2. change the text variable ($text['authorise'] = "You are not authorised to view this page";)


This is how the standard Restriction Warning appears in template8: Restrict access.jpg
