Hi there,

(Joomla 2.5.1, CompoJoom 4.2.1)

I have a made a user group in my Joomla that allows members to only work with articles and categories. I would also like to give these people access to moderate comments on CompoJoom. But unlike other components, there is no "Options" button showing in the component back-end pages of CompoJoom. Please advise how I can set these permissions?

Edit: I'd want to allow them to moderate comments, but not to access or edit any other settings in the component. In other words, the "Manage Comments" section only.

Thanks

Geoff.

Hey Geoff,
Unfortunately CComment4 doesn't use all the power of the new joomla framework. In CComment5 you will have the "Options" button and you will be able to select which group to do what.

If you don't want to wait :) you will need to make some file hacking :)

in administrator/components/com_comment/comment.php

right after:
defined('_JEXEC') or die('Direct Access to this location is not allowed.');
add this code:
// Access check.
if (!JFactory::getUser()->authorise('core.manage', 'com_content')) {
	return JError::raiseWarning(404, JText::_('JERROR_ALERTNOAUTHOR'));
}

This code is basically the same as in com_content. So users that have access to com_content will also be able to access the comments.

Hope that this helps!
Cheers,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your reply.

In CComment5 you will have the "Options" button and you will be able to select which group to do what.


Do you have an approximate ETA for when version 5 will be released? When it is ready, will it support permissions to allow access to moderate comments, while denying access to other areas, such as settings, LiveUpdate, etc?

Thanks

Geoff.

Yes, a good integration with the the new joomla ACL is on the list.

CComment should make it out in April - hopefully.

Kind regards,
Daniel
