• Security Level Menu

    From DesotoFireflite@VERT/VALHALLA to All on Tue May 31 07:49:32 2022
    Sorry in advance for such a stupid question, but I can't find the answer anywhere.

    Can I have a Security Level Specific Menu. I want to have a special main menu for users that I have to flag for security infractions, Level 20, that they alone will see. Is this possable. I know I can restrict menu commands on the main menu by using Ctrl-A codes by security level, but I prefer just making a special menu for this. Thanks in advance.

    you can throw something in real easy by doing
    compare_Ars level x
    if equal

    and sending them to another menu if true.

    I think your problem is all on the web though, isn't it?
    this is happening on other bbses. I think the bots found a way through the echicken web

    so i would just disable signups on the web and that should take
    care of the issue.

    Damn, I forgot all about that. These past few years, I don't think the Brain is working as it should... Thanks

    You may be right, I decided to do that last night, and let everyone register on the bbs. I hope to put it in place today sometime.

    In your command shell, you should be able to check the user's security and then show a different menu for each.

    In JavaScript, you could do something like this:
    if (user.compare_ars("LEVEL 50"))
    {
    bbs.menu("menu_50");
    // Allow level 50 stuff
    }
    else if (user.compare_ars("LEVEL 20"))
    {
    bbs.menu("menu_20");
    // Allow level 20 stuff
    }

    Ok, thanks. I got a handle on it. I was just making sure there was no security specific menus before I went this route. Thanks

    That's not a built-in feature, but it would be easy to add to a/your command shell.

    In JS, the logic would be like this:

    if(bbs.menu_exists("main" + user.level))
    bbs.menu("main" + user.level);
    else
    bbs.menu("main");

    Thanks ROb, I think I have a handle on it now. I just wanted to make sure there wasn't something built in, before I tried to invent the wheel. My command shell is still in Baja, but I should be able to figure it out with what you gve me in js. Thanks.
