Hide menu item when logged in

Hide menu item when logged in was created by alfons
Normally you gain access permissions to functionallity when you have logged in. This can also be finetuned with the access/integration settings of the plans. But I want the opposite:
- Everybody has permissions to see the menu item 'Subscribe' in the main menu
-But when a member logs in that menu item should disapear.

Basic Joomla settings can only inherit permission from lower level ACL groups. Is it possible with plan settings to reverse access permissions?

Not that i am aware of.

However you could use the CBSubs module for that subscribe link, and e.g. display "Thanks for your support" and also "Renew now" and more.

that seems like obvious functionality that should not have to be hacked in.

I am looking for this too..

It seems like such an obvious thing to have.
I want to acheive this on a tab.

public users visits a profile,
see a few things..the first tab they see reads "HEY you JOIN NOW!"

then love it...they join and login ..and the tab goes away.

so simple right!


I have seen this on countless numbers of sites over the years..but never paid much attn until I needed it.

now I can seem to get it working even with CBsubs

suggestions?

Possible function for a later release, but I suggest just adding another module position to your template using some minor code to check if user exists or not. You could then add a menu module to this position and it will only show to logged out users.

Joomla doesn't even support this, it works in a positive based protection not reverse (removing features). However, this feature is already noted for further investigation and possible implementation.

Please stop hijacking threads, your issue has nothing to do with this thread. Yours concerns Tabs not menu items.

This can easily be done with CBSubs Fields plugin and substitutions (page 244). A use case is covered within your documentation, please read it thoroughly.

You need to create a read only field in field management then alter the fields value with CBSubs Fields based on subscription. Then using advanced substitutions (IF statements) display content or not. Please see tutorials in signature for further information pertaining to substitution usage.

This is not hijacking, and I dont like that accusation.

Hijacking would be starting ask about the latest brands of oil from Walmart or whether you like fishsticks or not.



This subject is directly related to my needs.

I want this functionality to be on my menu items as well as my tabs.

- How to turn something OFF when logged in instead of on. be it a tab, menu item, module, etc etc.


And considering the lack of forum posts on this subject, this may help somebody out in their search.

because it helped me understand the correct terms to search for and what, and what is possible and what is not.

I read page 244 and unless I'm zen with CBsubs, it made no sense to me as that was what I needed to do.

because it seems to be such a simple thing to make something disappear when logged in, not something that requires advanced filtering.

pg. 244 really doesnt jump out and scream "remove tab after login"
