Hello,

I want to hide admin menu items, to which current user hasn't access permission. Any ideas, how to implement this?

Solution is found on this page http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?p=97682#p97682 in this topic.

Ideas? It`s not so easy first.
Programmer have to create special module.
In a few words you have to check role of user (you have administrator and customers in db) and show
corresponding menu items, so you have to rebuild menu architecture, add field with information to wich of roles it must be shown.

What do you mean saying module? I'm new to opencart and still learning the source, but so far I didn't saw ability, to attach custom module or plugin to desired controller. Am I wrong?

Hi,

I'm working with user groups and I need to hide the options that the user can't access (e.g. Catalog -> Products). I've searched the DB but my solution is pretty complex, I need one simpler. ;D

Anyone have any idea?

In Admin go to:

System>Users>User Groups - there you can create a group with the necessary options for editing. You can use the Demonstration user to test out your permissions for Access and Modify there.

Hope this has helped

yes, but that won't hide the options, it will just give a permissions error when a user that doesn't have permissions tries to access it. There are currently no mods that actually hide it. A mod that hides stuff from there probably wouldn't be too hard to write, but he also mentioned not having access to certain settings, and that would require some major rewrites to make it that granular.

Sorry if this one has been asked before...

Does anyone know of a way to hide admin menu items that a user does not have permission to access?

I know I can edit the header file, but this would then need editing again if permissions are changed

And I don't want to confuse my users with menu items shown that they cannot access

Thanks

You could check for each individual item and echo the item if the user has permission, but would take quite a bit of editing to achieve

yes it's unfortunate that Daniel is so against having the menu's built from the database. It would make it easy to add a user groups field, and allow mod makers to add menu items without having to edit the header files.

Yeah my thoughts exactly. This can of course also be cached to reduce DB queries required to generate it

Actually this wasn't too bad. Took about 15 minutes. OpenCart already had the needed functions, it was just about using them.

I only had to add checks on each <li> using the function hasPermission(). If the admin user has access permission then the list item is shown (the if block is executed). On parent menu items I checked to see if the admin user had access to any of the children items (Products is the child of Catalog for example). If it did then the parent list item is shown. If not then the parent list item is skipped.

I attached the modified header.tpl file with the above modifications (it is from version 1.4.9).

The attached file replaces:
admin/view/template/common/header.tpl

Attachments

This is a vQmod file for hiding menu items for OpenCart version 1.5.1.1

Header Template modified to use hasPermission to access.

If you are talking about hiding the admin menu items that a user doesn't have access permission for then your answer is to modify the header.tpl. Here is how to do it, with an attached modified header.tpl:
