Re: about metamod and chamaleon

Hi cesarupb,

you can achieve this without any extra components. Just go in and edit the menu item. There's a selector there for "Access level". Just for that menu item, choose "Registered" instead of "Public". Then, that menu item will only appear for registered and logged in users.

Hope that helps,
Stephen

Re: about metamod and chamaleon

(just read your e-mail as well) If you ONLY want that extra menu item to appear on particular pages and not others, then Chameleon or MetaMod can help you with that. Is that what you are wanting? Can you describe your situation a bit more?

Best regards,
Stephen

Re: about metamod and chamaleon

Hi cesarupb,

Although the basic description of what you want sounds easy enough (embedding a form into an article for only logged-in users), I don't know what you mean by "setting the links from the Dashboard menu item in tabs". That makes it sound a bit more complicated.

Let's assume for the moment that it's easy. As mentioned earlier in this thread, it's simple to make a module appear for only logged-in users.

So, I assume the form can be displayed in a module. Correct?
- then, make the module appear for "Registered" users only. That's a standard module control.
- then, put the module into its own module position. e.g. call the module position "embedform" (you can just type this into the dropdown for the module position)
- then, use the syntax {loadposition embedform} inside your article.

No MetaMod necessary.

Will that work for you? It does depend on being able to display the form in a module.

Cheers,
Stephen
