Adding a permission

Adding new permissions to Olympus is simple. Example how to add a permission to control who can access foo.php:

INSERT INTO phpbb_acl_options (auth_option, is_global, is_local, founder_only) VALUES('u_foo', 1, 0, 0)
  • open language/xx/acp/permissions_phpbb.php and add the language vars
'acl_u_foo'		=> array('lang' => 'Can view foo.php', 'cat' => 'misc'), 
  • clear the cache folder by hand or use this code in a installer script:
$cache->destroy('acl_options');
  • The permission should be ready to assign to users/groups in the acp
  • To check whether the logged in user has the nescessary permission in foo.php:
if (!$auth->acl_get('u_foo'))
{
     trigger_error('NOT_AUTHORIZED');
}


Hint: You're able to create your own permission set in a separate file.

  • Create a new file in language/xx/mods
  • Name it permissions_xxx.php
  • It will automaticly included, don't worry about how.

This is a sample file:

<?php 

/**
* DO NOT CHANGE
*/
if (empty($lang) || !is_array($lang))
{ 
	$lang = array();
}

// DEVELOPERS PLEASE NOTE
//
// All language files should use UTF-8 as their encoding and the files must not contain a BOM.
//
// Placeholders can now contain order information, e.g. instead of
// 'Page %s of %s' you can (and should) write 'Page %1$s of %2$s', this allows
// translators to re-order the output of data while ensuring it remains correct
//
// You do not need this where single placeholders are used, e.g. 'Message %d' is fine
// equally where a string contains only two placeholders which are used to wrap text
// in a url you again do not need to specify an order e.g., 'Click %sHERE%s' is fine

// Adding new category
$lang['permission_cat']['mods'] = '.MODS';

// Adding the permissions
$lang = array_merge($lang, array(
'acl_u_foo'	=> array('lang' => 'Can view foo.php', 'cat' => 'mods'),
));

?>
