Access to list users

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've created an "editor" role and there is a template (blog post page) with a page reference field where it should be able to choose an user (post author) but it seems it doesn't have access:

   "You don't have access to list page /alambre/access/users/"

What permission should I add to the editor role? Already added view/edit in user template.

Thanks in advance.

Not sure if that's the best approach 🙂

With page reference fields I think you want to go with a custom selector and add "check_access=0" to the selector.

Your way seems better to me 😊 thanks.

Curiously using "page list" as input field type shows all pages tree, using a "select" shows only users.

See this note:

Because of this requirement this input type won't be suitable for non-superusers to select users because you don't have the possibility to specify check_access=0.

There is a hacky way around this. This comes direct from the ready.php file from one of my sites - in this case it's for the autocomplete inputfield, but maybe something like this would be useful for you also?

// hack to overcome this: https://github.com/processwire/processwire-issues/issues/550
$this->addHookBefore('Pages::find', function(HookEvent $event) {
    $selector = $event->arguments(0);
    if(is_string($selector) && strpos($selector, 'template=user') !== false && strpos($selector, 'name|first_name|last_name%=') !== false) {
        $selector .= ', check_access=0';
    }
    $event->arguments(0, $selector);
});

PageListSelect is different because it doesn't get pages via Pages::find, but rather gets the children of individual pages if they are listable.

This is what I came up with:

$wire->addHookAfter('Page::listable', function(HookEvent $event) {
    $page = $event->object;
    // Page is listable if it is the Users parent or a user page and the current user has a given role
    if(($page->id === 29 || $page->template == 'user') && $this->wire()->user->hasRole('editor')) {
        $event->return = true;
    }
});

$wire->addHookBefore('ProcessPageList::find', function(HookEvent $event) {
    $selector = $event->arguments(0);
    $page = $event->arguments(1);
    // Don't check access if getting children of the Users parent and the current user has a given role
    if($page->id === 29 && $this->wire()->user->hasRole('editor')) {
        $event->arguments(0, $selector . ', check_access=0');
    }
});
