Checking Permissions

I've been struggling for quite a while now when trying to create my own addon and have come to the conclusion, that I will just bombard you with my questions. First one is about custom permissions in templates.

So I've activated debug mode and created a new permission for my addon, however I want to make a use out of it now of course. I've tried to do some research about the topic - needless to say I failed.

What I want to do exactly:
I have created a code snippet in a custom template modification inside the TMS and want to wrap it in (I guess) some sort of If-query to see, if the current user has sufficient permissions to see the code inside.

In a template:
Code:
<xen:if is="{$visitor.permissions.ctaFt.ctaFtViewFeaturedThreads}
In PHP:
Code:
if (XenForo_Visitor::getInstance()->hasPermission('ctaFt', 'ctaFtViewFeaturedThreads')

Haven't quite understood the syntax completely. Guess I need to replace the ctaFt and ctaFtViewFeaturedThreads with my stuff, and by the simple length of the second one I conclude, that it must be the permission ID but however, what is the first?

I've did it like this now:
Code:
<xen:if is="{$visitor.permissions.KLUBS.KLUBSPermission01}">
    //my Code
</xen:if>
Description inside the overview of all permissions is "KLUBS / general - KLUBSPermission01" and for testing purpose I've of course given all admins the permission, rest is set to default, but however it denies working.

Sure. I've also just set my ACP back to english so things will be more fluent.

These are my permission settings:




And some stuff you might want to check:

And your add-on has KLUBS as the ID?

From the snippet you have posted, your template modification doesn't look correct.

Should be KLUBS



EDIT: Don't know what I changed, but now it works. :cautious: Thanks!
EDIT2: Nah, somehow does ignore every settings now and works either way...

I've tried around a lot, but it still doesn't work. My code is by now
Code:
<xen:if is="{$visitor.permissions.KLUBS.KLUBSPermission01}">
TMS doesn't complain about the syntax, but it doesn't work no matter how I set the permissions. The other way round when setting
Code:
<xen:if is="!{$visitor.permissions.KLUBS.KLUBSPermission01}">
it works, even when I set permission to never. IDs are definitly correct as they are copy-pasted.

Lots of struggle later, but I still haven't figured it out. Step by step I did the following:

  1. I went to the Development tab and created a new Addon, ID: test01
  2. Opened up the Permission Definitions and added a new Interface Group, ID: TestGroup
  3. Added a new permission, ID: PermissionID01
  4. I've set the new Permission to allow for everyone
  5. Created a new template modification, containing the following code for testing purpose:
    Code:
    <xen:if is="{$visitor.permissions.test01.TestGroup.PermissionID01}">
    <!--Finally Working-->
    <xen:else />
      <!--Somewhat...-->
    </xen:if>
    I've tried a variety of if-checks, including $PermissionID01, $test01.TestGroup.PermissionID01, $test01.PermissionID01, $visitor.permissions.test01.PermissionID01, $visitor.permissions.test01.TestGroup.PermissionID01, $visitor.permissions.PermissionID01 and $visitor.permissions.PermissionID01
  6. Still getting punched in the face by the code spitting out the "Somewhat..." comment, no matter how I set the permissions for any existing group/user.

Edit: Finally understood the system and got it working... it has to be $visitor.permissions.permissionGroupID.permissionID
