No submit new article icon appears at blog category.

Postby hanjimail » Sun Jan 09, 2011 7:46 am

Joomla ver.RC1(Version 1.6.0)

PHP Built On: FreeBSD www1186.sakura.ne.jp 7.1-RELEASE-p15 FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE-p15 #10

Bug Description:

A submit-article-icon does not appear when a category is the blog category.
When I change the blog category into the category list, the submit-article-icon does appear in the page.

Steps to replicate:

1) Create a new category A and assign to A-menu in Main Menu.
2) Create a new user-group C under a Group-parent: registered.
3) Create a new user B as a registered user and assign to C user-group.
4) Go to the new category A and set Category permissions on C user-group as follows: New Setting (All action items set inherited to allowed)
5) Done.


I would like user B (registered member status) to create, delete, edit, edit-state, edit own at a particular menu category.

I tried the same thing at Author status and I got the same result in Joomla1.5.22
So, this is parts of Joomla specifications, I assume.

the submit-article-icon does not appear in the blog category page when you log in as the author, but in table category list it does appear.

Correct. that is the standard, the submit new is on the list layouts. You could add it with an override if desired.

mcsmom, (or anyone)
Can you tell me how to "add it with an override if desired."? I *really* would like to have that link present in blog layout, but cannot find any information on how to do it. Thanks!

I have the opposite problem: My client wants a category list, but they don't want the 'new' button for new article. How do I get rid of it or make it so that only they can add articles? Because right now everybody can add a new article. I've allready tried to change the permission of 'public' but that didn't help.

Please tell me step by step how to fix this.
Thanks.

There are a couple ways to do what you are asking...

Remove Icon With An Override

Copy The File

Copy the default.php file:

Code: Select all

/components/com_content/views/category/tmpl/default.php

to the the html folder of your template (NOTE: Depending on your template, this file may already exist. If so, you should NOT need to re-copy):

Code: Select all

/templates/<yourTemplate>/html/com_content/category/default.php



Edit The Copied File

Around Line 26, you should see and comment out the following:

Code: Select all

<?php if ($this->access->canEdit || $this->access->canEditOwn) :
        echo JHTML::_('icon.create', $this->category  , $this->params, $this->access);
endif; ?>

Once edited and saved, the icon should no longer show on any Category Lists.




Dynamically Remove Icon With Core "Hack" *

Edit The XML File

Open the following file with your favorite text editor

Code: Select all

components/com_content/views/category/tmpl/default.xml

and add the following code into the parameters section of the XML file:

Code: Select all

<param name="show_new_icon" type="radio" default="1" label="Show New Icon" description="Show/Hide the new article icon">
        <option value="0">Hide</option>
        <option value="1">Show</option>
</param>

(NOTE: If you don't want the default to be show the numbers, change default="1" to default="0" in the param line.)



Edit The PHP File

Open the following file with your favorite text editor **:

Code: Select all

components/com_content/views/category/tmpl/default.php

Around Line 26, you should see and edit the following:

Code: Select all

<?php if ($this->access->canEdit || $this->access->canEditOwn) :
        echo JHTML::_('icon.create', $this->category  , $this->params, $this->access);
endif; ?>

to

Code: Select all

<?php if ($this->params->get('show_new_icon')) : ?>
<?php if ($this->access->canEdit || $this->access->canEditOwn) :
        echo JHTML::_('icon.create', $this->category  , $this->params, $this->access);
endif; ?>
<?php endif; ?>

Once saved, this will give you a new backend option called Show New Icon which will allow you to either show or hide the icon as you please.

* (NOTE: Core "hacks" have the potential to be overwritten upon Joomla upgrades/updates.)
** (NOTE: If your template has a "default.php" file in the "/templates/<yourTemplate>/html/com_content/category/default.php" location, you will need to edit this file, since it overrides the core Joomla file.)

Are you saying the public can submit and article? That is actually specifically blocked by the code and the public should never see a create new icon. Can you please explain more about what you are seeing?

I found a very simple fix for hidding the "NEW" button in J2.5. Just go to Global Configuration>Permissions and here set in Public - Create Field to Denied. Works for me!
