Visible Menu asking to upgrade if not withing the right group

Post by canadareic » Thu Nov 15, 2018 12:45 am

I'm overwhelmed with the number of components

I'm looking for simple menu allowing members to upgrade if not withing the right group

I tried old trick

hidden menu with membership1 access
then
visible to menu pointing to alias membership1 but with registered only access

Then error message pops up " you are not authorized to see this resource or similar

I would like to offer membership1 menu available to the group member membership1, however, redirecting to upgrade page if registered only

The goal is to have this menu visible to registered, public ( pls upgrade)
and to membership1 ( visible )

would like to control content, components if possible.

Your feedback is appreciated

ACL can be straight forward but also made as complex as you intend it to be ;)

try this read: https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Access_Con ... t_Tutorial

A tough read.. but it may point you in the right directions...

In short it is what you want only visitors to see is in "Guest". What you want registered users to see is in the Access levels you created for these groups...

All can see "Public"

You can create as much groups and view levels you like.. but it will not make things easier to maintain without having made a plan first.

You want users in 'Registered' user group to be able to elevate themselves to a user group that has more Permissions ?
