  • Hi!

    I want to make some parts of the page layout info (e.g., a phone number, an address, etc. in the site header) editable by site users, but not burden them with templates/chunks. At the same time, giving them the full set of system settings along with the needed ones could be equally confusing and even dangeruos.

    So, is it possible to give a user/a group access to some of the system settings in Revo, while all the others will remain invisible to them?

    Thanks!

      Please don't double post.

      I'm afraid users either have access to System Settings, or not.

      One solution would be to create a form or a Custom Manager Page with the System Settings they should see and set the real System Settings from that.

      You could also create a Resource with its own Template and Template Variables for each System Setting you want to give them access to. Then a plugin could set the System Settings when the Resource is saved.

      You might look at Mark Hamstra's ClientConfig extra. I'm not sure if it will do what you want or not.

      • @BobRay Sorry it took me so long to reply. Now I got back to the project, and first wanted to invent some wheels with CMP, but it seems that ClientConfig already did that for me =) The extra solves the task perfectly, thank you for the hint.
