How to change the min authorityJuly 25, 2005 @ 1:49pm
I have added the links module and would like to change the min permission level. How can I do that?

Hi Dean,

There are no permission levels for the links module at this time, but it is something we are working on for a future release.

If you can tell us exactly how you are wanting to use it, we may be able to included that in our future release. Are you wanting to show the links to only members or only certain links to public and other links to members? Please give us as much detail as possible.

As a related side note, if you are wanting all of your site links to show only to registered members, you can create a new block (using block type: main menu) and set the block permission level (view) to the member level and then when they login they will see that block and link. Conversely, you could also just create a new block (using block type: main menu) and set the links Link to a specified permission level, which would allow you to gear each individual link as a different or same permission level as you choose.

I hope that wasn't too confusing...Try it out on our demo site (http://demo.flexcms.com), I just added a members only block and when logged in as basic member you'll see it at the bottom left block. Feel free to edit and play with that block.

For the time being all I want to do is disallow links to guests and people at level 1.

In the future it would be nice to specify levels to individual links.

The next version will most likely have the ability to set a permission level for each link or category.

For now you can limit the links section to level 2 or higher by adding this on line 19 of inc-lm-idx.php:

if ($UserLevel >= 2) {

And on line 284 add
