I would like one that is contolled by admin to show upcoming events, and a second shared one that anyone can add things to. If the second one could go through a submission process like the galleries, so people can't be rude or delete other people's posts that would be great. Or is this what the catalog is for?

Thanks!

Hi,

Not currently a feature - you can set up different event types, but the permissions for them are all the same. Maybe someone could make a mod for it though.

Thanks.  If I wanted people to be able to record when and where they spot a car, would a catalogue or CEDI be best for this?

I would like to have, for example, headings like Ferrari, and people can add when and where they saw it, and what model and colour it was.  If it could be filtered and sorted by type and date, that would be brilliant.

I'd suggest a catalogue.

Brilliant - thanks.

Will it be relatively simple to modify so that people can add entries without going into the full CMS system (e.g. some kind of pop-up box)?

Man, ocPortal is good!

I've buitl a catalogue and it's great - the only problem is that when I log in as the test user, when they go too add an entry they get taken to the Content Management part of the admin zone, which isn't themed like the rest of my site.  It also has the toolbars and options I don't want them to see.  Only admin should be able to get that far.  How do I give a 'normal' user access to the page to add an entry, while keeping it in my theme and not mucking up the admin zone for admin users?

I apologise for my spelling - I seemed to have regressed to the mental level of a 8 year old while I typed that!

The CMS zone operates in a reduced view for people without full Admin Zone access. I think if you don't want the top bar to show at all you could edit the cms:panel_top page to be…

Code

[if_in_group="Administrators"][block="_management" type="top"]side_stored_menu[/block][/if_in_group]
If you get creative in ocPortal, just about anything can be done :).

In terms of the theme, there's no reason you can't edit the CMS zone to use a custom theme.

Thanks, Chris.

But am I correct in thinking that if I theme the CM zone, it will be the same for admin too?

And are you guys in the UK? If so, why are you at work, after work?

You can theme every zone to be different. So you should be able to have different themes for Content Management and Admin.  :thumbs:

Thanks for all the help, everyone!

I'm trying to get my head round where each page is actually held. I now (sort of) understand that a CSS file dictates the overall look, and the templates control individual blocks, but how do I edit specfic pages?

For example, on the page where you add an entry to a catalogue, which is in the cm zone, I would like to remove the breadcrumb and the help panel on the right side. How do I do this without theming all the other cm pages as well, as I don't want to muck them up and remove the help from them by mistake?
