Hello folks,
I've just bought your plugin for sobi2, I've followed the instructions in the readme but there is one thing that is missing in joomla 1.5 legacy mode:

3. Now you should be able to create a new sobi2 plugin in the backend of joomlacomment.
extensions->other component settings ->new * ->
from the component dropdown menu choose com_sobi2 and click save.

. It seems that Jomcomment 4.0 beta2 is made only for joomla 1.5 native and can't be run in legacy mode with fully functional and in legacy mode I just can't see such an option
"extensions->other component settings ->new * -> ".

Please tell me is there a way to use Joomla 1.5 legacy mode with Jomcomment 4.0 beta2 and sobi2 plugin. Hope you can help me! :(

When I enable Legacy Mode, the 'New' button is still there in JoomlaComment. I don't think it's related to Legacy mode, you probably have a corrupt JoomlaComment install. Or are not logged in as the Super Admin or something.



EDIT: It doesn't say I have Legacy enabled in that screenshot but It does appear for me when I do enable it...

Do you have a save button there??? If yes, click it, then the new button will appear :)

What I want to do is, only administrators to have the ability to write/comment but the comment to be visible only by registered. Is this possible? :)

Change the ACL setting in the JoomlaComment plugin under Plugin Manager.

EDIT: See this page - help.joomla.org/content/view/1465/196/

'Access Level' is what you want to change, to special. Unfortunately Joomla's #1 flaw comes in here - Special is anyone in the "Author" group or higher.

Nothing has changed after the change from registered to special... adminpanel(backedn)->extensions->plugin manager->Content - !JoomlaComment changed from public to special and nothing... is it possible that the problem to be because I use com_sibi2 plugin for jomcoment? Or I need to change something more in the configuration of the plugin?

What jonus suggested is working for content elements.

The trick here is that only administrators will be able to post and see the comments. A normal user will be not able to see the comments. This is the problem with his method.

Unfortunately joomlacomment doesn't come with its own ACL. We are planning to implement such a thing in a future version.

Right now I don't know any way other than hacking the comment.class.php and checking - is the user admin -> yes - show the write form, no don't show the form. Do you want a solution like this?

Cheers!

Thanks for the e-mail remind. I forgot about this thread.
open components/com_comment/joscomment/comment.class.php

Find the function form_htmlCode() around line 2851.

uncomment the following code
	    if ((!$user->username && $this->_only_registered)) {
		$html = $this->onlyRegistered();
        	/* needed informations but hidden : */
		$html .= $this->disable_form($hidden);
		return $html;
	    }
like this:
//	    if ((!$user->username && $this->_only_registered)) {
//		$html = $this->onlyRegistered();
//        	/* needed informations but hidden : */
//		$html .= $this->disable_form($hidden);
//		return $html;
//	    }

After that code add:
		if($user->usertype != 'Super Administrator') {
			$html = '<div class="onlyregistered">Only administrators can write comments</div>';
        	/* needed informations but hidden : */
			$html .= $this->disable_form($hidden);
			return $html;
		}

This should do the trick.

Thank you for the code it works perfect! Now about this line in the code:
if($user->usertype != 'Super Administrator') {

Is it possible editors, administrators and super administrators to have the rights not only super administrator and how will the code look then?

One big THANK YOU again for the code! :)

Well, I'm not sure what the other strings are :)
Try this and if it doesn't work, then I will have a look
if($user->usertype != 'Super Administrator' || $user->usertype != 'Administrator' || $user->usertype != 'Editor') {

Nope, this code doesn't work. With this code even super administrator can't write a comment. Some other suggestion? :(

The groups for my site are the standart joomla groups.

The same, not working. I've tried with your editor too.

if($user->usertype != 'Super Administrator')
elseif($user->usertype != 'Administrator')
elseif($user->usertype != 'Editor')
 {

This code doesn't work too.

This code should work:
		if(!(($user->usertype == 'Administrator') || ($user->usertype == 'Super Administrator') || ($user->usertype == 'Editor'))) {
			$html .= $this->disable_form($hidden);
			return $html;
		}

One big THANK YOU m8! :silly:
I see that this code doesn't have this:
$html = '<div class="onlyregistered">Only administrators can write comments</div>';

can I have it in the new code or it's making the whole problem? :)

I'm sorry for posting in this very old topic but i've supported your project in the past and I'm willing to do it again. I'm using this old component of yours and I have this module as well mod_comments4.0.0alpha3, but the problem is that my site is extremeply big and I'm not able to upgrade to your newes component and modules so I need to modify and use some old ones. So my problem is that the module does not have the option to show sobi2 comments at all, there is no such an option in the module parameters mod_comments.xml can we do something about this with a little hack of the files?
