Hi,

Is there a way to hide Categories where the user is NOT assigned?

For example... I have 2 categories, namely: Category A and Category B. I assigned Category A to User A (as an admin). So, when User A logged in I want to hide Category B and just show Category A which is assigned to him. Is this possible?

Thanks

Hello,

You can change the menu's and category's access level, but it won't work for Super Users.

Hi Krikor,

Can you please elaborate a bit more?

[Let me correct my question] My question is ONLY for admin, both the categories will be visible to all public/registered user.

Regards

By default Super Users will see all of the content, so the restriction will not apply to these users (which is also the logical thing).
For the rest of the users, you can setup new Joomla! user groups and restrict access to the categories you want.

Hi Krikor,

I set up two user group in K2 and called "Group 1" and "Group 2". I assigned Category A to Group 1 and Category B to Group 2. Next I create a new user called "User 1" and assigned to K2 user group "Group 1". But when I logged in as User 1 and when I try to post a new item I can still see Category B.

What I would like to have is when I logged as User 1, I should be able to see only Category A (and can post only to this category)

Use Joomla!" ACL and control the menu items, K2 User Groups do not offer this functionality.

Thanks Krikor, it will be really nice if K2 support this :)

By the way, I want to control K2 categories (based on K2 user group), not menu items.

Sorry for the late reply.
That would require a custom extension. If you have the budget that is what I would recommend.

Will you be able to help if I want the custom extension? If so, can I PM you?

That's not really possible in an easy way. I would highly recommend you simply configure frontend editing in K2. It'll be much easier to control that way and yes, you can have user groups assigned to different categories there. With Joomla's ACL in the backend, it's a nightmare to configure.

If you use & love K2, please take a moment to add your review and rate it
at the Joomla Extensions Directory: extensions.joomla.org/extension/k2/
