How to allow guest searches?

I'm using the most current versions of TP and SMF.

I'd like to allow guests to be able to use the TP search function, but I cannot seem to find where there's a setting to allow that. (??)

I have 'Guests allowed' in the SMF settings and they can perform searches (after verification), but TP still asks for a login before permitting searches.

How can I set TP to allow Guests to search?

@rjen

 :hmm: a permission for search was added recently, but like the other TinyPortal permissions that is not available to guest. May be an oversight when the permission was added...

I see a checkbox in Search Settings, but turning it on makes no difference.

I've been through all the settings shown in the 2nd image and I don't see anything that allows it.


@rjen

No, the TinyPortal permission are not showing for guests. For reference check the permissions for a member group: there you will see the TinyPortal permissions.

I have all these turned on in the "Guest" profile permissions, but I still can't get it to allow searching. This looks like it's only for the boards, so I must be in the wrong place. (??)

The 2nd image shows my Groups, but I don't see Guests in there.

MrMike

I'm not sure where to go from here...

I've looked through every permission I can find and I'm not seeing anything that allows me to let guests search with TinyPortal.

I've kind of hit a roadblock with this; I need to allow guests to use the TP search function; is there no way to accomplish this?

I'll give that a try and let you know what happens.

Can you try commenting out that line in the code?

It should then allow you to set the permission for guests.

MrMike

Here's what my edit was...when I had a test user go to the site and do a search, he still got the "not allowed" massage. (

Do I need to go back and look through the permissions again? Would commenting out that line make another option appear somewhere?


     'tp_dlupload',
            'tp_dlcreatetopic',
            'tp_can_list_images',
            /*'tp_can_search',*/

@rjen

That's what I tried to explain: there is no standard option to allow it. But you can try the fix Tino gave

With that change you should find a permission showing for guests that you can set
