Thanks, I'll work on it and report here.
UNSOLVED Custom Page: pageView events and access restrictions
I am working on a plugin code that creates a custom page accessible to the client.
Its working and all is good! Two questions if I may:
- I am not getting pageView events on the custom page (for the rest of the site I do). Am I doing something wrong?
- Am I able to restrict access to the custom page to certain groups? How would I go about implementing that?
Thank you very much in advance!
For setting up your cutom page use this https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/blob/master/src/routes/helpers.js#L5, or at least use the
middleware.pageViewfunction as a middleware, that will count the pageviews.
As for only allowing some groups to view the page. You have check if the user is a member of those groups with the function
groups.isMemberOfGroups(uid, ['group1', 'group2'], callback);You can get the uid from
req.uidin your route handler.
