Show hidden nodes

Wednesday 15 October 2008 10:22:49 am - 4 replies

I want to show a certain part of the website to a colleague for verification, but I don't want that part to appear online yet so I made it hidden.
Yet, I can't find a policy i.e.('show hidden nodes') that can be assigned to a certain role... only an ini setting for a whole siteaccess.

Anyone got suggestions to accomplish that people can view hidden nodes after login? Thanks already!

Create a custom siteaccess that only they have access to login to blunk.gif Emoticon

maybe I should enter a feature request...

If only navigation/search tools such as menus or sitemaps are well configured, that is they only fetch what they are supposed to, including section declaration, then adding another section does the trick perfectly, we use that all the time to develop functionalities that aren't supposed to be accessed by general users. Whether the user will be required to log in or not to see that section, remains only the matter of how you setup your policies.

Just for the searching people: I solved a similar problem by adding something like

if( preg_match( '~^/?admin_de/content/versionview/~' , $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] ) ) {
    $ezIniSiteIni = eZINI::instance('site.ini');
    $ezIniSiteIni->setVariable( 'SiteAccessSettings', 'ShowHiddenNodes', 'true' );
    $ezIniSiteIni->setVariable( 'ContentSettings', 'ViewCaching', 'disabled' );

in my extension/customerX/autoloads/eztemplateautoload.php.

Now, when you open a file in the backend to edit it, you can see the hidden parts of the site via the "preview" button.
