Description:

AGE & GENDER BOARD FILTER MOD
By Eliana Tamerin || Originally by Senkusha

This mod is written for 1.1.5. It may work on older versions (no guarantee), but it will not work on any 2.0 versions. An upgrade to 2.0 is not yet planned.

Warning
Installing any modification is a risk to your forum. Please backup BOTH your database (structure and data) and files before attempting to install. You have been warned.

Known Conflicts
Introduction
Restrict entrance into a specific board by profile-set age or gender. Users are restricted from editing their age and gender after it has been set (only admins can after that). Ages over 80 default to 0 for the purposes of this mod.

Also, please note that this mod will restrict guests from entering the boards you modify with the age/gender options. This also means that seach engines will not be able to access these boards.

How To Use This Mod
-Install the mod
-Navigate to Admin CP > Boards > (Board you wish to modify) "Modify"
-Enter minimum age and maximum age or select gender you wish to restrict
-Click "Modify"
-Users are now allowed into/restricted from the board you just modified based on their minimum age, maximum age or gender

-To require the gender and/or birthdate fields on the registration page:
--Navigate to Admin CP > Registration > Settings
--Check/uncheck the options at the bottom
--Save

Regarding Upgrades
When the mod version is upgraded, I will try to provide upgrade packages for earlier versions. However, because the number of supported versions may become overly strenuous, I will only guarantee upgrade scripts for the past two versions of the mod. I will keep the changelog accurate to make it easy to figure out whether you have a version within that timeframe or not. If an upgrade script is not available, you must uninstall the mod prior to installing the newest version. You may need to update each board's settings after doing this.

Notes
This is the first mod of Eliana Tamerin, taken over from another coder. Please keep that in mind as you request features or ask for support. However, feature requests/suggestions and support requests are always welcome. Patience is advised.
