Modulation just for administrators

Post by screspo » December 9th, 2010, 12:31 pm

Hellow

It's possible to setup the module just for the Administrators to move the modules and then store the positions for all users after moving the modules?

Additional and related question:
Is it possible to store the module layout per MenuItemID/Page !?

User positions are already stored per Itemid basis.

Nice, but...

You have mentioned in my support ticket that it also stores the "user".
So, it is not possible to let Admins create layouts for ALL users, right?
It would be helpful and more versatile, IMHO.
Actually, in my usecase it just needs the MenuItemID.

Possible to implement it as a configuration option? Maybe a toggle for both scenarios.

Admins can't create any layouts.
Settings are stored in local browser storage.

Aaah yes, my fault. :$
Obviously, this makes it impossible to store something for another user ;)

Another thought :??: :geek:
Any chance the layout/positions can be stored in a configuration file? Maybe as a JSON/XML file or something like that? Or even in DB table.

Hm... we don't think that this option is required, what for do you need it and how should it work?

A Joomla core PageBuilder based on Modules ;) 8) :geek:
Since Joomla 3.4 allows frontend Module editing, it would be cool to change the positions easily by drag N drop! Even clients could learn and work with this solution for simple pages.

The final module layout has to be permanent for all users/visiters. :!:

(BTW, I know something similar from Drupal, there is an extension called "Draggable Views". by default, it stores the position in the DB. But it can also work per user)
