permission_rows

Harvey
I thought that I used to be able to edit the text in the permission_rows macro but now it seems I can't?

Am I remembering this incorrectly?

It looks like the create_poll permission is added as an override so that the original macro can't be edited. (Also looks like my original edits are gone).

Can the create poll be added in to the original macro?

We are checking it. Here I'm having a problem with this macro too.

Harvey, why do you want to change the text on that screen? Normal users don't have access to that page, so I don't see the point. In the worst case, you could use the translation tags to override the text, but I don't understand why you would ever need this.

LOL. Hugo the operative phrase here is "normal users." I'm surprised you mistook me for a normal user.


Remember I changed "See How NAML Creates this Page" to just "NAML."

I'm just high maintenance. Don't worry about this.

LOL. The point is that only you (and other admins, if any) can view that page. So customizing that text is pointless :-)

This is different because everyone can view that sentence in the footer. So this is worth customizing.

I didn't know everyone could see the naml link.  Which just shows how nuts I am.  I do wish I could shorten what is in there so the entire permissions page would fit on one screen.

For example (and this is a width thing not length) - I was going to test the poll feature on just a few users but since it wouldn't fit on one screen I killed that idea. Nuts huh.

We talked about this some months ago. The NAML link should NOT be removed by anyone (although it can be renamed, like in your case).

You should see a horizontal scrollbar on that page when it doesn't fit in the window. If this is not enough, you could remove all those descriptions by tweaking the "permission_row" macro (singular, not plural). You can take a look and let me know if you have questions.

It does give me a scroll bar. I'm just not really fond of scroll bars.  It's fine, leave it the way it is. I need to learn to be more flexible.

I  find myself about every six months wanting to edit the permissions rows.  What I can see matters to me.

Re: permission_rows

I could rewrite all the descriptions to make them shorter and more clear. You could push it out Nabble wide.

Start be removing:

"under this application"
"of this application"
"in this application"

from each description.  I think it's obvious that when you grant a power it is for this application you are in.

Take something like:

Who can move messages under other destinations (e.g., sub-forums, subcategories, etc)

and make it:

Move messages to other sub-forums or subcategories.

Take this:

Who can edit any content, both applications and posts. Note: Please only use this feature in extreme circumstances. Most users will not like having their posts edited by someone else.

and make it:

Edit ANY content, both applications and posts.

I don't need the warning to use care in moderating my forum  built into my control panel.

Or let me edit that macro and I will do it to suit myself.

I created a file at your editor called permissions_translations. You can add there translation tags to shorten those descriptions.
I've added one for you:
<translation><from>Who can edit any content, both applications and posts. Note: Please only use this feature in extreme circumstances. Most users will not like having their posts edited by someone else.</from><to>Edit ANY content, both applications and posts.</to></translation> 
On the other hand, you can set the description column width with css:
table.permissions td.col1 {
width: 100px;
}
table.permissions {
width: 100%
}

I couldn't make this work. Some code in the description prohibits me from pasting it into a translation.

Also somehow the translation created a macro:

I didn't understand what you did. Please, go to the advanced naml editor -> permissions_translations, and try to add another one. Have you tried it?

I actually didn't do anything.

I tried to do this but got an error:



We got the columns to fit (my main goal) so I'd let it go.

Sorry, in this case you have to replace the special characters < and >. Please, copy this template to your file:
<translation>
<from>Who can post any content without restriction (including javascript code, &lt;object&gt; and &lt;style&gt; tags, etc.).
 <b>Security Warning</b>: Allow this option only for users that you really trust.</from>

Re: permission_rows

Pedro I appreciate the effort but I dont think we need to do this.

My main goal is to avoid scrolling.

I do think you could reword the permissions row nabble wide but that is your call.

Ok. If your permission table gets too wide, please use the css rules I've wrote before.
Let me know if you need any help.
