This is useful if you have a component - such as myblog, and you want certain blog pages to be viewable by guests, however, you want other blog pages to be viewable only by logged-in users.
Many components only allow you to specify if all or none of the pages are viewable by guests vs registered users. In many cases, you want to pick and choose which pages are public vs private. You can do this with Component Content Control.
Version 1.61 - For use on Joomla 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5 websites only.
Use V1.52 on Joomla 1.5 websites.
NOW you can control multiple components and easily set up your components that you want to be mostly private or mostly public.
For example, you might use MyBlog and have a blog that you want to be mostly private, but have some blog pages that you want to be public. Then just enter "com_myblog" in the "Mostly Private Components" parameter, and enter in the Public Tags (url fragments) of the blog pages that you want to be public.
At the same time, you might have another component that you want to be mostly public, with private access required for a few pages. Then just enter that component name (eg: com_poll, etc) in the "Mostly Public Components" parameter, and enter in the Private Tags (url fragments) of the pages that you want to be private.
Read the comcontrol_plugin_readme file at http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/plgcomcontrol/frs/ for more details.
V1.52a fixes an "empty delimiter" warning sometimes seen.
I do not wish just to stop at 'Public' or 'Registered view'. Since joomla can have other categories UNDER 'Registered', I want few things to be available for specific sub-category of 'registered' lot. e.g. I have 'Registered-New', 'Registered-Approved' members. New entry creation button of component I am using have no ACL to prevent creation of new entry for New members. I want to achieve it through this.
This tiny little plugin, does precisely as it says, with such little effort. From what I can tell, it's not limited to any list of components either. Simply type in the name of your component, and it does the rest.
Brilliant, and thank you
Simple install & clear docs.
Multiple components would be great.
Hi - thanks for the kind words! Now with V1.51, it supports multiple components.
