This component sounds great, and exactly what I'm looking for. But I don't seem to be able to get it to work. I don't know if I've missed the point or I haven't got it set up correctly.
I would like to have two levels of registered users, and give access to more articles for the second group.
I have a clean install of Joomla 1.5.9 with just noixACL 2.0.3 installed. The latest plugins are also installed and enabled.
To test I created 3 categories: cat1 set to public, cat2 to registered and cat3 to special.
In each I have 3 articles; art1 - public, art2 - registered, art3 - special.
From the back end, setting up looks straight forward.... setting up and assigning to groups, allowing access to articles in registered or special categories. But when I look at the front end my settings appear to have no effect. If the users group's parent is Public Front-end or Registered, I have the same access as Registered, no matter what is selected through the component. If Author or above, I have Special access (without edit).
Have I missed the point? Or have I not set something up correctly?
Thanks in advance for any advice given.
In joomla you haveDefault Access Levels Public
Item with ‘Public’ access level parameter will be accessible by all users include guests. Registered
Item with ‘Registered’ access level parameter will be accessible only by all registered users. Special
Any user created as Author, Editor, Publisher, Manager, Administrator or Super Administrator is
considered a Special User. Item with ‘Special’ access level parameter will be accessible only by
these Special users.
When you create a new group the access level default is "registered". My component not control output in joomla only block access. For example if you want in blogcategory or blogsection list more items with group access to category or sections define in noixACL do you have implement this feature in com_content. I thinks the best solution for your problem is in module main menu(i will make this module soon) have integrated with noixACL check before display a item if your group have access to see. This way in your groups you can check diferent itens to see in menu. You make a menu to diferent items to show list of content to groups.
I thinks this is a best solutions for this problem.
