SMF Articles

A nice system, but the permissions don't really play like SMF permissions usually do. I can not seem to be able to make a category that is viewable only by one membergroup.
At least I haven't found a way to do that.

To explain a bit further:
My permissions on the forum use allow, disallow and deny.
The membergroup permission to view in forum wide permissions is allowed for everyone, because this is a master setting for the articles page.
I have a membergroup X that I would like to give exclusive access to a category, regardless of that group being in primary or secondary group for the member.
So far I have not been able to find a combination of the permissions that would allow this. Either everyone gets in, or no one gets in. ( Well, I can limit out groups completely, like guests - but if I limit say group Y, and a member is in both Y and X he will not get in because Y is denied. )

re. permissions

Edit the hooks file & replace the articles_load_permissions function with the following:

function articles_load_permissions(&$permissionGroups, &$permissionList, &$leftPermissionGroups, &$hiddenPermissions, &$relabelPermissions)
{
global $context, $modSettings;

$permissionList['membergroup'] += array(
'view_articles' => array(false, 'smfarticles', 'smfarticles'),
'add_articles' => array(false, 'smfarticles', 'smfarticles'),
'edit_articles' => array(false, 'smfarticles', 'smfarticles'),
'delete_articles' => array(false, 'smfarticles', 'smfarticles'),
'rate_articles' => array(false, 'smfarticles', 'smfarticles'),
'articles_comment' => array(false, 'smfarticles', 'smfarticles'),
'articles_auto_approve' => array(false, 'smfarticles', 'smfarticles'),
'articles_autocomment' => array(false, 'smfarticles', 'smfarticles'),
'articles_admin' => array(false, 'smfarticles', 'smfarticles'),
);

// SMF 2.1 branch behavior will differ
$version = version_compare((!empty($modSettings['smfVersion']) ? substr($modSettings['smfVersion'], 0, 3) : '2.0'), '2.1', '<') ? 'v2.0' : 'v2.1';

if ($version === 'v2.0')
{
$permissionGroups['membergroup']['simple'] += array(
'smfarticles',
);
$permissionGroups['membergroup']['classic'] += array(
'smfarticles',
);
}
else
$permissionGroups['membergroup'] += array(
'smfarticles',
);

}

Thanks Chen Zhen, that looks like a promising suggestion - but sadly, the 2.0 install doesn't seem to use the hooks file..

re. permissions

I'll give you a modified install file.
It's not my mod therefore I will not upload an updated package.

You'll have to unzip the package and replace the articles2.xml file with what is attached then re-zip the package and install it on your forum.
Report back and let us know if it resolves your issue.
If it does perhaps vbgamer will update his package with the fix.

Permissions I want to redo one day. Right now everything is allow all. And the only way to deny is deny each member group

re. permissions
Okay, thanks for the effort - but comparing the original and your file, I'd be willing to guess this will have no effect.
That would only edit the part where ManagePermissions.php specifically states that it's completely optional to use.

The permissions for article categories have a unique table.

File: ../Sources/Articles2.php
function: MainView()

find:

if ($context['user']['is_guest'])
$groupid = -1;
else
$groupid =  $user_info['groups'][0];

// Set page title
$context['page_title'] = $mbname . ' - ' . $txt['smfarticles_title'];

$dbresult = $smcFunc['db_query']('', "
SELECT
c.ID_CAT, c.title, c.imageurl, c.filename, c.roworder, c.description, p.view 
FROM {db_prefix}articles_cat AS c
LEFT JOIN {db_prefix}articles_catperm AS p ON (p.ID_GROUP = $groupid AND c.ID_CAT = p.ID_CAT) 
WHERE c.ID_PARENT = 0 ORDER BY roworder ASC");
$context['articles_cat'] = array();
while ($row = $smcFunc['db_fetch_assoc']($dbresult))
{
// Skip category if they do not have permission to view it
if ($row['view'] == '0')
continue;

$context['articles_cat'][] = $row;
}
$smcFunc['db_free_result']($dbresult);


replace with:

if ($user_info['is_guest'])
$groupid = array(-1);
else
$groupid = $user_info['groups'];

// Set page title
$context['page_title'] = $mbname . ' - ' . $txt['smfarticles_title'];
$dbresult = $smcFunc['db_query']('', '
SELECT
c.ID_CAT, c.title, c.imageurl, c.filename, c.roworder, c.description, p.view, p.ID_GROUP
FROM {db_prefix}articles_cat AS c
LEFT JOIN {db_prefix}articles_catperm AS p ON (p.ID_CAT = c.ID_CAT)
WHERE c.ID_PARENT = 0
ORDER BY roworder ASC'
);
$context['articles_cat'] = array();

while ($row = $smcFunc['db_fetch_assoc']($dbresult))
{
// List category if they have permission to view it
if ($row['view'] != '0' && ($user_info['is_admin'] || in_array($row['ID_GROUP'], $groupid)))
$context['articles_cat'][] = $row;
}
$smcFunc['db_free_result']($dbresult);

Vb, it seems that when 'liking' an article and pasting an article link on facebook, it does not take you to the article itself, it posts the home page link instead.

I just recently noticed that pasting a link to an article in Facebook actually posts a link that brings up the home page also.

I searched through but didn't see a solution, unless I missed it.

It is probably do the url having a ; which SMF uses by default and Facebook does not like those characters.

Ok thanks. I saw you had said that but didn't know if a work around had been discovered.

vbgamer45

Basically change the links to use & instead of ;

How would one go about doing that?

vbgamer45

It would require opening the template files for articles and changed the url passed in the facebook code I believe

I think this mod needs to be updated.
In SMF 2.1 RC2+, when I write an article, I get an error message directly in the editor window:

Notice: Undefined index: show_bbc in /home/bulataka/public_html/test/Themes/default/Articles2.1.template.php on line 853

Click =>

Also, when I try to import Tinyportal articles (I use Tinyportal 1.6.5), I get two error messages:

- first error message at the top:

Notice
: Undefined index: admin_menu_name in
/home/bulataka/public_html/test/Sources/Articles2.php
on line
1829


- second error message, as message box:

Database Error
Unknown column 'authorID' in 'field list'
File: /home/bulataka/public_html/test/Sources/Articles2.php
Line: 2912

I tested SMF Articles 3.04 in SMF 2.0.17 and 2.1 RC. There is no way to add a new article. I added a category at first. Changed permissions to global moderator. There is no place can find add article button for any members (even if administrator, global moderator).
SMF Articles 3.03b can add a new article.
I do not if it is bug or there is any trick to add a new article.

vbgamer45

Inside the category do you have this near the bottom
"Add Sub Category - Add Article -  Return to Article Index"


Also, do you have any permissions setup on the category. If so can you take a screenshot of what you have setup.
