I am rebuilding from scratch my community website, which you can preview at www.new.aus4017.com.
I have added a BLOG app, which users have to be Registered and Logged In to use.
Problem is, when you click on the BLOG menu, it brings up the Blogging Article, which has a Trash option button showing beneath the title. See Red Arrow in attached screenshot.
I have searched endlessly, and cannot find the setting to suppress this. We don't want REgistered/Logged In people trashing other peoples posts.
Can anybody please direct me to the solution.
Thanks in anticipation !
I've never seen this before. I have no idea what it's about. What "blog app" did you add? I don't know of any "'blog apps" for J!. Did you see the link to my Skype in your other forum topic? Would you like to talk things over?
Thank you sozzled for your reply. I had a thorough look through the Joomla Extension Directory and the best I could fine was "jaggyblog" which was highly rated by users.
I decided to install it on my new community website currently under construction which you can preview at www.new.aus4017.com. I've restricted Blogging to Registered & Logged In visitors to minimize abuse and have proper control.
It works fine, except for that "Trash" button beneath the Title, and I can't work out how to remove it. The obvious issue would be that Registered/Logged In users could then trash others' postings and all hell would break loose.
I don't know anything about "jaggyblog". I've never heard of it before. I don't know anyone who has used it.
According to the Joomla Extensions Directory, JaggyBlog was added 10 years ago and last updated five years ago. I would be sceptical that something that pre-dates PHP 7 would be viable with the current version of J! today. Your choice, of course, but who know ...
As an administrator of the website, when you're logged into the frontend, Joomla, or almost any component, will give you some sort of frontend editing abilities. In this case, I can see that you can create a new post or trash the post.
Create an account as a registered user and see if there is a difference.
A regular registered user shouldn't be able to create to trash posts.
Furthermore, on testing your registration process, it doesn't send an activation email as your mailing function on the site isn't working.
BULLSEYE Peter !
Silly me ! - I forgot I was logged in as an administrator, which is why the "Trash" button appeared.
I signed on again as a Registered visitor, logged in and clicked on BLOG - issue solved !
Thank you buipy001 and sozzled for your help. I haven't been developing in Joomla for couple of years - hence my logic is a bit rusty !
