Re: ign_password_protect

ign_logged_user doesn’t seem to be working – after i log in, it continues to show “not logged in” message. I’m using a single <code><txp:ign_logged_user /></code> with no parameter

on my home page, I’m using <code><txp:ign_show_login /></code> and it is working fine, and when logged in, it shows what i’m hoping <code><txp:ign_logged_user /></code> will show on the other pages: user name & log out link

Am i using <code><txp:ign_logged_user /></code> correctly?

p.s. the <code><txp:ign_show_login /></code> tag is great on a home page, would be nice if it could accept a ‘forward’ tag, so that logging in could also take my users in to the ‘members only’ area…

Re: ign_password_protect

@andjules – can you send me a link where this isn’t working for you? Just send it offlist (use the E-mail link at the left). It’s working fine at this end.

That’s an interesting thought on the forwarding…I don’t know if it’ll make it into the next release, but I’ll definitely see what I can do.

Re: ign_password_protect

hi, any ETA for the 0.4 version..? i’m so eager to try it out..

also, do anyone have an idea of how to make just a selection of articles password protected? e.g if i want to have some articles subscribers-only and some not, how do i do it? all within the same section i mean. (override form..? but that destroys the listing/individual difference, doesn’t it?)

Re: ign_password_protect

Thats pretty simple…

<code><txp:ign_password_protect privs=“1,2,6” hide_login=“true”></code>Your article here<code></txp:ign_password_protect></code>

The above tags will allow users with priviliges 1,2 and 6 view the article. You can use it within articles,forms or page templates.

Put <code><txp:ign_show_login /></code> wherever you want the login form to appear. You can use other tags such as <code><txp:ign_logged_user /></code>, <code><txp:ign_usr_online></code> wherever you want.

Re: ign_password_protect

Hi,

So I have this plugin working for the most part. I just have one question. I was wondering if there is a way to display something when the user is not logged.

For instance, I have a main page for pw protected section. The content on the page is password protected. When they login they get something like “congratulations you’re logged in, here are some links you can go to.” But when they are not logged in nothing appears because all of the main content is pw protected.

I could add content before they pw protected stuff, but then that would also appear when they are logged in and I only want this other info to appear when they are not logged in.

I’m guessing I need some sort of if statement but I’m not sure how to do that.

any help would be great!

thanks!

Re: ign_password_protect

Right now the only way you can display a message is by using the <code>login_msg</code> attribute. And this message cannot contain whole content such as headings and paragraphs. This attribue does not support tags like <code><p></p></code>, <code><h2></h2></code> etc., It can contain only a few lines which is automatically wrapped inside <code><p></p></code> tags.

I was also pondering over this problem. It requires conditionals such as <code><txp:ign_if_not_logged></txp:ign_if_not_logged></code> or something like that.

Igner is working on a new version and hopefully he will implement this.

Re: ign_password_protect

Ok, so <code><txp:ign_if_not_logged></code> doesn’t exist yet, right? If not, I would definitely like to see this feature added too.

Yeah, login_msg won’t really work for what I’m doing.

Thanks for the info!

Re: ign_password_protect

@Anton – I might have a version to send out to testers later this week, but I don’t have a firm ETA at this point. I’m facing a couple other deadlines that I’ve got to focus on first. Regarding selectively protecting content, the most reliable method will be protecting the individual articles as needed / desired.

@June – No, there isn’t this conditional right now, and because of the way the current version works, it’s not really something that could be readily hacked in (or more accurately, hacking this into the current version would make a fairly inefficient plugin even more so).
It shouldn’t be too hard to implement with the revised processed in version 0.4; while the primary focus of 0.4 will be alternate user table support and a dramatically refined authentication process, I should be able to roll this in fairly readily. Now it’s just a matter of finding time to do the coding.
