Hey Instinctual-
I want to let you know that a couple of your tips were just what I needed to really get a handle on how to get working with Smarty and XCart.

Sometimes a tiny little bit of data is all that is needed to get a whole new chapter of learning started.

Thanks much!

Instinctual,

Thank You for these excellent tips! I am a newbie to Xcart and your instructions have helped me tremendously during this learning stage while modding the cart for my purposes.

I am wondering what happened to #3, or am I just missing something here?

Quote:
3. Sometimes I don't want my "store admins" to be able to create new administrators - - - sounds easy to do with the logic above, but you don't want to just take out the link "users" because that disables the ability for them to administrate their customers as well. So this fix makes it so that the "manage administrators" link dissapears while keeping the "manage customers" link intact. This is a tricky fix... I'm running out the door but will post this fix and more later tonight.

Using xcart v4.0.13 I am creating a new admin level based on the 'Fulfillment staff' templates. I've created a new directory and inserted home.tpl and menu.tpl in it to show only what I want this level of admin to see. So far so good - it works! Now I run into the problem of the "In this section" dialog box under "Users Management". I want to hide some of those links - in particular the ability to create new admins!

I think I have it narrowed down to dialog_tools.tpl, but cannot get any further...

Many thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

Solved by surrounding the links I do not wish this admin level to see with
Code:
if ($login == "master"){}
in admin/users_tools.php. For example:
Code:
if ($login == "master"){ if (empty($active_modules["Simple_Mode"])) { $dialog_tools_data["left"][] = array("link" => "user_add.php?usertype=A", "title" => func_get_langvar_by_name("lbl_create_admin_profile")); $dialog_tools_data["left"][] = array("link" => "user_add.php?usertype=P", "title" => func_get_langvar_by_name("lbl_create_provider_profile")); } else { $dialog_tools_data["left"][] = array("link" => "user_add.php?usertype=P", "title" => func_get_langvar_by_name("lbl_create_admin_profile")); } }

Default ah yes

Ah, yes, sorry I didn't get back to you in time, excellent work ;o)


I usually disable the whole "see also" section up there as well, in dialog_tools.tpl by just commenting out that <td> that they're in.

Thanks for adding to the post!

bump.

Since editing a post doesn't seem to affect the last post date, I'm shamelessly bumping this post to let you all know I've added to it and edited it.

I like to keep it all in one simple post so I always edit the first one here ;o)

Cheers :P

Hi Instinctual

What a wonderful post. Most appreciated.

I was asking about one of these in the forum and Patraick pointed me here however I can not get this very simple one to work

{if $user_membership eq "Premium"} display this {/if}

I setup test user and attributed xcart default Premium membership to it and get a blank.

Checked db and it attributes Premium to this user.

Tried this in 4.014 and 4.016

Scratching head here.

Can't see what I am missing here!

Cheers

Chris

4.03 - 4.016

Do you have it set so that you need to "approve" membership?

Hi Mike

Thx for reply

I went to my test site - still 4.04 and setup a user in Wholesale Membership.

When I login it recognises the login and shows me a wholesale price I setup so I know that xcart is recognising that group.

So I added {if $user_membership eq "Wholesale"} display this {/if}

to customer/home.tpl

Yet it shows nothing on screen.

BTW I did not know you could set it to approve membership but I don''t see that as a problem here.

Cheers

Chris
