I know its not always possible to answer, but do you have any sort of timeline for when the next update will be released? Just curious, as if its a while, I can work around it for now, if its soonish, then I can wait before building the site (new site)
When creating a new application form, and you set groups that can apply, it doesn't check secondary groups.
We are creating a new gaming forum, all those who register are members. Thre is then an application to join one of the games (group1) this can only be applied to by the member group.
Once accepted their secondary group is then "group1"
We then offer a second application to become an officer of the group (leader)
We only want those who are member of "group 1" to apply. However it won't work, as the group check only takes into account the primary group, which for all users is still set as "member".
We need it to account for secondary groups as we are creating a multi game community, so changing the primary group will not work, as we need to allow them multiple rights, so secondary groups is the only way to do it the way we need.
Any plans to allow secondary group checks in applications? Even if its just a tick option to ask whether we want secondaries in the group check.
With the application form view. How would I go about styling it a bit, I want to change the questions to be bold text. And adjust how the "drop down" answers show, as not too fond of how the "tick" pushes the main answer out of line with the answers not chosen.
As for the blocks can't you just include the check yourself? It is what I do, I built a login block for a home page, if the member was logged in, it would show a welcome block, if they were not, then it would show the login box.
So I can set which user can accept/decline applications, that's great. However does it work on a per application basis.
user 1 can accept applications for "application 1"
users 2 and 3, can accept applications for "application 2"
but user 1 could not accept an application from "application 2".
As for part two, i think you may have misunderstood, its not the questions I am on about, its the automatic group change upon acceptance.
a user in group 1, applies for "app1", upon acceptance, he is moved to group 2
user in group 1, applies for "app2", upon acceptance, he is moved to group 3.
Or to better explain, application 1 is there for hiring a global moderator. So when the application is accepted, he would be moved into the "global moderator" group.
application 2 is for hiring a forum mod, so when accepted, he would go into the "forum moderators" group.
We are currently a group of 7 clans, and we are part of an alliance, to help with comms, we are looking at merging onto one site. I was looking at using content to create basic application forms, and they would post in their relevant sections. However member groups are an issue here as don't want too many with access to the ACP. So have come across your application.
So a few questions.
1) With each created form, can you set which user groups can accept/decline the applications?
We have 7 clans, so each clan will have groups set for each main position. We wouldn't want a recruiter from clan 1, to be able to accept applications for clan 2.
2) With each created form, can you select which group they go in?
I know after reading your write that this is possible, however is it possible on a per form basis.
Form 1 = Members -> Clan 1 Member
Form 2 = Members -> Clan 2 Member
Form 3 = Members -> Clan 3 Member
Yeah will be a wiki system so that members can add and edit players, each player will have a team set, and its that field then that the template will grab depending on the team being viewed. I had it working on my current site, but stopped it as was redesigning how it will all work.
This was what i got at the time i stopped to restart how it would all look. (ignore the image, hadn't re-sized it, and ignore Messi lol) that was just to test it setting the layout based on the players positions.
The team info, and stadium info will also be a wiki database. But league tables and so on will not, as that's based off an external feed.
Not exactly a content page as such, but been working on something for a new design of my site.
I am using IPC Databases to create the latest news, tables sections, along with a database that allows me to set the teams banner image. Works in both forum and topic view. And is based off the forum name and then grabs the relevant teams banner.
Still a work in progress and am redesigning it to work with a team home page that will link to forums and other area's for that team.
That is just a mockup at the moment, but will be sorting it all out over the next few days once I figure out what bits and bobs I want on a teams home page.
All but the forums will then be run via content databases.
