setting node id for extensions

Wednesday 14 January 2004 11:04:07 am - 2 replies

Hello everybody !

Can someone tell me how to define a node id for an extension ?

I have programmed an extension with direct database connections.
The permissions are already set through the standard module permissions within the admin panel.

I have also programmed a dynamic navigation which loops through nodes and their childs and shows links and buttons depending on the permissions on the node.

Now the problem is to show a button to the programmed extension depending on the rights on that extension.

My first problem solution in mind is to set a node id for the extension.

Can anyone tell me how to solve that problem or how to set the node id.

Best Regards

Hi Norman,

Since a node is a placement of a content object in the system hierarky, it doesn't make much sense to assign a node id to an extension. However, have you tried assigning access rules to the different views of the module extension?

Hi Eirik,

I`ve already set the access rules for the extension.
That`s not the problem.

The Problem is to integrate the extension into the dynamic navigation, depending on the rights given to the module / extension.

The solution would be to check the rights given to the module within the navigation template. But I didn`t find anything about that until now.

Best Regards,

Norman Leutner
