CB Query field only visible by Admin, must be visible to registered members

3 weeks 1 day ago - 3 weeks 1 day ago #317046 by adinet
Hi Team, I have cb query installed and use it to show various values through out our site.
One area that it is used is in JEvents and it shows the value of whether a member is financial or not.
It is used to show this value so no member can manipulate it but what is happening is it is only viewable by an Administrator and it has to be viewable by all registered members.
I have set the query field and all other sections every where that I can see to either public or registered and still no change.
Cleared all caches and I'm at a loss.
It would appear that all my query fields are not visible to anyone unless you are an Admin.
How can I change this so registered members can see the output from a query field type.
This is essential.
Ok in the mean time it works
Solved
Cheers Adrian

Hi Nant, I changed so many settings so in the end I'm not 100% sure which setting did the trick.
So basically the cache took time to catch up.
Does Community Builder have its own cache?
I set the Query field to public in the field type via the core ajax inline editing but made it read only in the Query field settings.
I set the Query plugin to Public.
I set the Tab view to Registered.
I will go now backwards and try to unset different values to find the actual setting.

CB does not do any file caching. Most caching in CBs is variable caching to prevent duplicate processing during a PHP process.

I set the Query field to public in the field type via the core ajax inline editing but made it read only in the Query field settings.

You can't edit a query field. It queries the database for results and displays them. So it has no edit functionality. Additionally you can't ajax edit a field marked read only. A query field can be displayed in profile edit, but it will just display its results like a Custom HTML field.

I set the Query plugin to Public.

That's the correct setting for plugins 99% of the time as it impacts who the plugin itself even loads for.

I set the Tab view to Registered.

This will cause the tabs contents to only be visible to registered users.


There's no access controls specifically on query fields beyond those controlled by something else. For example if you use CB Conditional or CB Privacy to set access restrictions on the query field. If you set the tab access parameter. If you set the query plugins access itself. It's possible the issue is in the query itself causing an empty result to output based off who is viewing it.
