Different template for guest and registered users

Different template for guest and registered users

Hi,

I'm really struggling getting the metatemplate pro to work. I think i did everything right but even when i don't touch the settings of the example rule for 'Beez for guest only', it doesn't switch from default to the Beez template.

In the debugger it says;
METATEMPLATE DEBUG ON
Current date and time: "2011-01-09 21:43:16" in timezone "Europe/Prague"
Processing rule id 2 ("Example: Beez for guests only")
Started FAIL action for rule id 2
Finished FAIL action: default template not changed
Finished all rules
Final template unchanged

I tried login out as admin but the switch doesn't happen, the site remains on default.

I have no clue what i'm doing wrong, do you have a tip were the issue might be?

Thx,


Marc

Re: Different template for guest and registered users

Ahoj Marc,

That's quite strange... there should be more information given about checking for Guests.

I have just tried this out on my test machine and can confirm that this must be a bug sad

Until I fix it, here's a work-around: instead of selecting "All non-logged in" in the groups selector, select "Non-selected groups:" but don't actually select any groups. That should act the same as non-logged-in.

Thanks for reporting the problem. I am sure I can get it fixed soon.

Šťastný nový rok,
Stephen

Re: Different template for guest and registered users

Hi Stephan,

Well I'm afraid that isn't working for a 100% either. This indeed switches the template from default for guest, but after login does not return the site to default template. Did you got the PM?

Regards,

Marc

Hi Marc,

I sent you a copy of MetaTemplate Pro with the bug fixed - if you can confirm that the new version works I'll release it for everyone.

Cheers,
Stephen

Re: Different template for guest and registered users

The new version has been published on the site. Existing MetaTemplate Pro customers can upgrade by logging into their account, viewing their order, and downloading the new version from the list on the page.
