    That worked Great! Thanks Man view reply
  • waya59 added a new discussion topic Filtering the Tools menu by profile types in the group Plugin Development
    A while back I managed to figure out a way to filter the widgets availible to users according to the profile choice they made, (using "Profile Manager and Dragable_widgets). Now I would like to do something similar with the Tool Menu on the...
    • I don't use profile_manager, I'm using the old usertype plugin. But the code I use to get exactly what you're asking for is this:

      if ( $_SESSION['user']->usertype == "User1") {

      add_menu(elgg_echo('pages'), $CONFIG->wwwroot . "pg/pages/owned/" . $_SESSION['user']->username,'pages');

      This go in relevant plugin start.php
      good luck!

    • Thanks,,,

      the code I have tried is:

      $p = page_owner_entity();
      $pt = $p->custom_profile_type;

            if (isloggedin() && $pt == 3) {
                    add_menu(elgg_echo('mood'), $CONFIG->wwwroot . "mod/mood/everyone.php");
             }

      Not sure if the ($_SESSION['user']->custom_profile_type == 3) statement would work but I'll read up on it.

      Thanks for the idea

    • That worked Great!

      Thanks Man

    Hello again Evan, Could you tell me where I can find some examples where $.ajax or $.post have been used like this? I'm really a newbe to this type of programming and kinda lost lol. view reply

    I am playing around with a custom dashboard which has help bulletins to guide new users through the profile setup stage. These bulletins change as the user completes certain task, but in the end I need to allow them to click a button to hide the...
    • The jquery documentation is the best place to start to learn how to use $.post/ajax

      http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.ajax/

    • Done spent a few hours going over that,,,,, some times I think I try to make stuff harder than it realy is.

      I grew up on latterlogic from way back in 1982 or so I know a little about foxpro, C++ pertty good at html know some basic and bits and pieces of other languages...... then I found elgg lol PHP kicked my butt for a while and now I gotta figure out jquery I know I'll get it just wondering when lol.

      It would be nice to see some real life examples of other peoples code,,,, don't know somehow that makes it easier

    • Examples are always easier.  The jQuery docs usually have plenty of code examples.  Here's one example specific to elgg, though:

      <script>
      $.post('//my.elgg.site/action/do/something', {
      __elgg_ts: <?php echo $ts; ?>,
      __elgg_token: "<?php echo $token; ?>"
      }, function() { alert('yay'); });
      </script>

      this will call the action "do/something" with no arguments except the security tokens.  Basically it is just like submitting a form to do/something but it does it in the background.  Then, once the call returns (if it is a success) you will see 'yay' get alerted on your screen.

    • Thanks Cash its a good example to get me started,,, lol although I'm sure I'll have more questions in a few days.

      I'm working on a marquee plugin which will allow business profile users (ie. Biker Bars or Motorcycle shops to scroll Drink specials, upcoming  Bands, or monthly specials on thier profiles) and I had it working,,,, working great lol only it would only work for IE,,,, I'm sure you know the reason so now I'm having to rewrite some stuff using java , And if I was losted when I started this project using php, I am really losted incorperating java ,,, but I'm getting there little by little .

      Thanks for all the help everyone.

    • I assume when you say java you mean javascript?  I'm not sure why you would need to incorporate java into a php website just for a marquee?

    • yes it is javascript and I'm just feeling my way through a new type of programing for me, and suggestions would be a help lol

    • As a newbie I will like to have the following:

      a) Detailed Elgg framework design which is explained through various diagrams. I believe diagrams are the best way to understand anything.

      b) Good topics for Customizing elgg with end to end code.

      c) Case studies / small projects with end to end working code

      Basically I cannot find all these in one place. I will like to see this in your book.

      Best wishes.....

    • Will this book be available in an online format?

    • As Dave said, it will be available as an eBook (besides being available as a print book). It should also be in O'Reilly's Safari Books Online.

    This is kwel, just one thing that would make it awesome,,, a searchable weather forecast so that the page owner sets a default location but visitors could searh for weather where they are.
