Guest-Only Menu Items

Post by shadowolf » Sun Apr 13, 2008 2:49 pm

How do I create menu items that only guests can view?

When creating new Menu Item (> Menus) check appropriate access level. You will want 'Registered' or 'Special' ... only visitors in either of those two categories will be able to see the menu item.

Use Public for guests and registered for members etc... Easy :)

What I want is for guests and guests alone to be able to view certain menu items (registered and special members can't see them). I recall seeing a tutorial that involves making two differing menus (one for guests and one for members) and inserting a piece of code inside the index.php that makes one menu show for guests and another for registered members. I'll come back if I find it.

Have you been able to find an answer to this? I'm looking to hide module content from registered users (i.e., show only to guests). Seems to be a simple enough requirement. Unfortunately extensions like joomihide or rokaccess only work on article content, not the content of modules.

Try this solution and think of putting your guest menu items in their own menu http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f ... u#p1204759

Here is a very nice hack with selectable options, I tested on 1.5.22 version. Try it:
