Restricting User Group by Time of Day

Restricting User Group by Time of Day

Hi.

I need to redirect a user group by time of day to a particular page or template.

I set the environment to a time band and that works and I can recognise the user group.

My question is does the menu handling part allow the rule to apply to certain menu items? In other words I want no rule applied to user login but I do want a rule applied to the main menu and items below it

Thanks in advance

Chris

Re: Restricting User Group by Time of Day

Hi,

I cannot get this to work....anyone any advice?

I set the first rule to check if users are logged in, if not logged in then they are pushed to the login page - this works.

On failure I request the next rule is processed (the user is already logged in).

This next rule checks to see if the user is in group "support limited" - I cannot get this to work at all. It is as if once logged in the rules are no longer being checked. My uunderstanding was that the rules would be checked on each page loaded? Or is it just the first page?

Hi,

Fixed, had not included menus....... similar problems? Turn on debug in options.

Hi, thanks for reporting back that you had found the solution. Chameleon's debug mode is a huge help in situations like this. I use it constantly.

Cheers,
Stephen
