Sidepanel by roles

edited August 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi, is there a way to show some things with the sidepanel extensions to some roles and hide it for others? Thanks


  • Yes, but it's up to the extension author to implement it. The upside is that it's possible to add it yourself if you're good with php.
  • Me no good with php :( But i'll do some research. Thanks.

    You don't to be that good with php...

    Create a new permission:$Context->Configuration['PERMISSION_SEE_OTHER__SECRET_PANEL'] = '0'; $Context->Dictionary['PERMISSION_SEE_OTHER__SECRET_PANEL'] = 'Can see the secret panel';

    add if ($Context->Session->User->Permission("PERMISSION_SEE_OTHER__SECRET_PANEL")) { ... }

    Adding something to the panel: see the lussumo documentation.
  • Thank you very much, that did solve my issue. If someone is using it theres a ")" missing in the line if ($Context->Session->User->Permission("PERMISSION_SEE_OTHER__SECRET_PANEL") { Thanks again.
