  • ManagersOnly
    A snippet based on Adam Crownoble’s LoginLogoutLink (8/3/2005) and MemberCheck by Ryan Thrash, Jason Coward (3/4/2007) .

    Purpose
    The purpose of ManagersOnly is to offer very light way to show/place content to/for Manager Users. This snippet doesn’t check group memberships, it will only check to see if the manager is logged in and return the contents of a chunk.

    Note: If you would like a snippet that also checks group membership try Susan Otwell’s modified MemberCheck, ManagerCheck.

    If logged in the manager user will see the chunk content where called. If not logged in no one else will see the links.

    Usage

    1. Place this text into a new snippet and name it ManagersOnly

    2. Create a Chunk with the contents for managers only such as links or text.

    3. Place snippet call into template or document. Where `chunkname` is the name of your chunk:

    [!ManagersOnly? &chunk=`chunkname`!]

    Important: Do not place the normal chunk call into your page or template as it will be publicly accessible.


    Parameters
    &chunk - Name of Chunk containing content to display [String] (REQUIRED)
    &debug - Turns on Debugging to see what the problem is [0|1] (REQUIRED) Default = 0

    Current Version: 0.1.1
    Last Update: 06-01-2008 (Usage info update. No change to actual snippet code)

    Note:

    Looking for people to see how it works on their stacks. Especially PHP5. Any simple suggestions are welcomed.

    • What a clever little snippet!
      PHP Version 5.2.2 works fine.
      Can I just point out you don’t need to add the chunk to the page, only to the snippet call.

      Thanks

      • This is nice. Thanks.

          What a clever little snippet!
          Thanks. I am learning more and more PHP and trying to extend some other snippets. This one enabled me to see how to get a template from a chunk. I want to add that to FDM so that it can have a default field set.

          Yes. I should mention that in the instructions. The chunk call should not be in the page call or it will be accessible to the public. It should only be in the snippet call.

            • If I could make a suggestion . . .

              $outputchunk = $modx->getChunk($chunk);


              Should be the first line inside the if statement. Otherwise, you’re fetching the chunk every time the page is accessed whether there’s a manager user on or not. IOW:

              if($_SESSION['mgrValidated']){
              
                      $outputchunk = $modx->getChunk($chunk);
              
                      //Check to see if there is a chunk to output
                          if ($outputchunk){
                              return $outputchunk;
                          }
                          // If Debug is turned on, output error. (kind of overkill for a small snippet like this--did it for practice.)
                          elseif ($debug == '1'){
                              return 'The chunkname '.$chunk.' doesn\'t appear to be valid or exist.';
                          }
                  }   else {
                      //End the script
                      return false;
                  }

              • Bob, you certainly may make the suggestion. I am hardly a programmer as I say here regularly. I do php to get stuff done. I always like to be told the better way to do things. I’ll check this out to ensure it works and repost the updated version. I may just add it to the repo since it works as expected.

                Cheers,

                • Hi,

                  Is the snippet that Bob posted above the actual snippet code, or it's just a part? I noticed there's no attachment in this thread.
                  • To every who finds the same snippet for MODX Revo:

                    <?php
                    if($modx->user->isAuthenticated('mgr')) {
                        return $html;
                    } else {
                        return false;
                    }
