Feedreader add-on: make it visible if not logged in

edited April 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I really like the feedreader extension. However, I'd like it to show up to the people who aren't logged in as well. So to anyone browsing the forums. Can I do this easily?

    Check out the default.php file (sorry I dont have it to hand and I'm in the middle of something) there's probably an if statement in there which checks $Context->Session->UserID > 0 (or similar). Just take that checking out.
    If you cant work it out from that let us know and someone will find time to check it out in more detail for you.

    Thanks, that did the trick.

    Cool :)

    Hmmm. In my default.php file is $Context->Session->UserID > 0 but anonymous users don't see feedreader
  • Options
    Users with id of 0 are unauthenticated (anonymous).
    So it looks like it is set to greater than 0 which means members only.

    No, it's set to 0 in my /extensions/FeedReader/default.php file
    /****************************************************************************** ATTACH LIST ******************************************************************************************/ if (in_array($Context->SelfUrl, array("categories.php", "comments.php", "index.php", "post.php")) && $Context->Session->UserID > 0) { $frr = new FeedReaderRender($Context->GetDefinition("FeedReader.URI"), $Context->GetDefinition("FeedReader.CacheTTL")); $frr->attachToList(); }

    I've solved this problem. I had to change this:
    && $Context->Session->UserID > 0)
    && ($Context->Session->UserID == 0 || $Context->Session->UserID > 0))
    and now every user with any ID can see the feedreader

    Yes I know, it it set to only display if the user is authenticated.

    I think you need to remove this bit...
    ) && $Context->Session->UserID > 0)

    I may have included/excluded a stray bracket or two though.

    I can't remove this part:
    ) && $Context->Session->UserID > 0)
    becouse if I remove it the feedreader will only avaible for anonymous users, not for member and not for administrators.
    Before this part is "UserID == 0" probably you know it's mean ONLY for user width ID=0, so only for anonymous.
