Description for registered users only
« on: April 10, 2012, 00:52:03 am »
Hi guys, im not a noob user of virtuemart...but it has been a while since i´ve build my last online shop and i dont remember the roots of virtuemart.

The questions is simple:

How can i have a product with a piece of description hidden for non registered users.
1-The client wants a product cake
2-The registered user can download the recipie and the not registered cant. So simple has that.

Hope you can solve this mistery :) and help me with that.

Hi valbap maybe make a single product - clone it and then make one of then a group , the other non registered - "blank group"

thus your special group will actually see the same but different product - and in the long description add a URL link to your receipe.

enjoy your cake,

Hi John2400,

thanks for your answer, but i guess that will be a mess uppon maintenance, no?.. Ill need to bake (haha, me made a joke too...) 2 versions of each product...

There should be a way to hide a url or a piece of text from unregistered users, no?I remember on old virtuemart, there was a download files possibility at the virtuemart backoffice store... that could be an answer... cause there was a way for registered (subscriptioned) users to download and have certain privileges with files..

Your gave me a possibility, if theres no better...

Oh, very cool and elegant solution!

Answer is probably from my VirtueMart 2 User Manual ebook, includes FREE updates. FREE Admin Menu Cheatsheet, Quick Install Guide & 30-Minute Quick Setup Guide
