Hiding categories in section blog layout

Hiding categories in section blog layout

Hello, I am using Joomla 1.5.14.

I have two custom usergroups with different access levels. Now I created a new section with several categories. I want user A to see ALL categories and user B just to see SOME categories. In the acces control area I can set the permissions so that user B cannot access the articles, but still user B SEES ALL categories on the overview page. When I choose section-blog layout even text from none-permission-Categories is displayed.

How can I avoid this? Does MetaMod have a solution for that Problem? I don´t want to have two sections with duplicate articles.

Thanks very much for your help
Daniela

Re: Hiding categories in section blog layout

Hi Dupi,

fundamentally, MetaMod is all about controlling MODULES, not about controlling access to articles (/sections/categories). I think that you should try some of the other access-control component systems in the Joomla Extensions directory. I hope that there will be one which does what you need (but I don't know what to recommend as I don't use any of them).

Sorry about that,
Stephen
