How do I add to a new Section?

Tuesday 19 June 2007 7:25:07 pm - 4 replies

Okay, I'm a newb. I really have spent a lot of time reading the manual, but I have something that still keeps evading my search.

So I'm building a site where everyone has access to all the content up to a certain depth. Beyond certain areas within Folder, etc, you must be a premium user to gain access. The site will sell subscriptions that will give access.

I am assuming that the best method to create these "premium" areas, is to create a premium role, set up a section called premium, give the role permission to this section. Finally I add content to this section which then the content will have that as it's section id, then I can also link it under folders that are under the standard section, and only premium users will be able to access these areas.

Now I believe that the above process will work, and I want to test it. Here's the problem, I created a section called "Premium Content" with the navigation part "Content Structure" and I can't find anyway to add content to it? Everything I add goes to the standard section, I have no way of editing the section something belongs to. I just can't find it. Obviously if my above theory is wrong, no one needs to explain this.

You can assign objects or subtrees to your new section by clicking on the litle icon with a "+" on it in the admin-interface. (setup/sections)

Okay, thanks. I guess I was trying to do it backwards, assigning content to a section, instead of assigning a section to the content.

Thanks for the help

I have an extension setsection that does what you were looking for.

If enough interest, I'll release it on the wild.

I'd love to have an extension like that. It would be a lot easier than setting the section backwards.
