1. Page type

Which page types should make this rule SUCCEED? Chameleon knows about many different types of pages and can identify them individually, irrespective of which menu item they are attached to. You can select multiple values with the Ctrl key (Windows) or Command key (Mac), and the rule will SUCCEED when any of the selected pages are requested.

Options:

  • Ignore
  • Featured (e.g. front page)
  • Article
  • Article edit
  • Article save
  • Content category (blogstyle)
  • Content category (liststyle)
  • Tagged items
  • Compact list of tagged items
  • List of all tags
  • Contact
  • Contact category
  • Contacts all categories
  • Newsfeed
  • Newsfeeds category
  • Newsfeeds all categories
  • Register
  • Reset Password
  • Reminder of username
  • Login
  • Profile
  • Edit Profile
  • Save Profile
  • Search (i.e. before the user actually searches for anything)
  • Search results (i.e. after search has been done)
  • Weblink (pre-redirection; this allows you to trap the redirection and perform an action after someone clicks on the link but before they are sent to the destination URL)
  • Weblinks category
  • Weblink all categories
  • New Weblink
  • Wrapper

2. Article ID(s)

You can make a rule SUCCEED for individual article IDs. You can enter a comma-separated list of article IDs here, or click on "SELECT or change article" and click on articles from a browsable/searchable list.

3. Category handling

This control works with the category selector (below). Options:

  • Include categories & their articles
  • Include categories plus subcats & articles
  • Include only subcats & their articles
  • Exclude categories & their articles
  • Exclude categories plus subcats & articles
  • Exclude only subcats & their articles

4. Categories

You can make a rule SUCCEED when viewing articles or category pages that are in the selected categories and possibly their subcategories depending on the dropdown above.

  • If you select a category, then the rule will SUCCEED for any category list/blog pages for that category, and for any article view pages where the article is in that category.
  • You can select multiple values with the Ctrl key (Windows) or Command key (Mac).

Example: If the selected category from the example above is "Extensions", what happens when a user visits the category pages (or any articles in those categories) for the following nested categories?

root => Products => Travel => Europe => France

Handling"Products"?"Travel"?"Europe"?"France"?
Include categories & their articles fail succeed fail fail
Include categories plus subcats & articles fail succeed succeed succeed
Include only subcats & their articles fail fail succeed succeed
Exclude categories & their articles succeed fail succeed succeed
Exclude categories plus subcats & articles succeed fail fail fail
Exclude only subcats & their articles succeed succeed fail fail

5. Article Tags (Joomla 3 only)

From Joomla 3, articles can be given tags. If the currently viewed article has one or more of these tags (in comma-separated list) or none of these tags (not in list) then the rule will succeed.

6. Category Tags (Joomla 3 only)

From Joomla 3, categories can be given tags. If the currently viewed article is in a category which has one or more of these tags (in comma-separated list), or the currently viewed category page has one or more of these tags, or none of these tags (not in list) then the rule will succeed.

7. Components

You can make a rule SUCCEED for any pages within a particular Joomla! component, irrespective of what menu item they are attached to (if any at all). Select the desired components from the list. You can select multiple values with the Ctrl key (Windows) or Command key (Mac).
