Re: bot_privs: edit user level privileges

Plugin updated to work with Txp v. 4.2.0 (see first post for download).

Changes v0.3

  • This version works only with Txp 4.2.0. – for previous versions use v. 0.2.
  • More privileges are added following the changes in admin_config.php
  • I’ve removed the sloppy “can see all articles” feature added by me in v. 0.2. If you need such functionality use this plugin by Variaas instead

Why do you did that? That was important setting in my situation. Well, I have installed plugin asv_auth_articles, but it’s working not properly. I have an error message in the article listing tab:
Notice: Undefined variable: article_list_pageby in C:\AppServ\www\textpattern\lib\txplib_misc.php(594) : eval()’d code on line 317

Can you taking back that setting? Please!

It probably suffices to enter the “Articles” tab and change the “View [XX] per page” dropdown to any value once.

Yes, it’s solved the problem, thanks for helping!

Gerish, That “feature” was wrongly designed because it didn’t take into account pagination.
Let’s make an example.
1) set the “View [XX] per page” dropdown to, say, 100
2) suppose the total number of articles is 150
2) suppose you wrote 50 articles.

In this situation you’ll see a different number of articles depending in the sort criteria used in that page.
So, for example, if articles are ordered cronologically, you could see only 30 articles in the first page and 20 on the second page but if they are ordered alphabetically you could then see 5 articles in the first page and 45 on the second page… The plugin works ok only if total articles are less than 100.

I hope this was clear enough.

It seems you managed to make asv_auth_articles work. I reccommend you use it, but if you really, really need my old feature I can post here a modified (and terribly awful) version of my plugin which adds new 4.2.0 previleges still mantaining the old code.

Re: bot_privs: edit user level privileges

Is it possible to include an option to hide the individual bot_privs tab from some users? At the moment you can hide the entire extensions tab, but sometimes this is a bit too drastic.
I edited the add privs line in the plugin (add_privs('bot_privs_tab', '1');), but it would be nice if the plugin did this through the interface.

Also: A feature request: Can one change/rename/add/delete user groups through the plugin?

Yes, it is possible but I don’t think I’ll do it as I’ve decided this plugin will only deal with permissions hardcoded in admin_config.php.
That said, you can very easily customize the plugin by yourself adding just one line and reinstalling it.

I’ll show you how soon but before I must correct a bug I discovered just while I was examinating your request (@##!!)

I’ll think about it but, again, you can easily achieve this using the great plugin wet_babble

Re: bot_privs: edit user level privileges

All

Download last version 0.3.1. which fixes a bug with the new privileges added by txp 4.2.0

Oops sorry that’s not true. I wrote this plugin many months ago and I forgot some of the problems I faced at the time.
Now I remember there was a problem with dots (notation used by privileges in admin_config.php) and underscores (notation used with function names). So, to make it short, I’m sorry but I think the best way (at least for now) is to directly modify the code, as you are already doing.

Re: bot_privs: edit user level privileges

Is it possible to add in plugin options for categories?
For example:
User can create new image (or article) category – Yes/No
User can edit only his categories – Yes/No
User can delete categories – Yes/No

and other options.

Re: bot_privs: edit user level privileges

Hi Gerich,
I’m sorry but this is not possible, at least with this plugin. This plugin provides an interface for managing standard textpattern privileges without changing txp code. As you can see from my link , the permissions that you need are not specified in /textpattern/lib/admin_config.php so it would require a specific plugin which, as far as I know, still doesn’t exists. Maybe you can try to post a request here.
