admin cant see GARS settings?
i have the gars set to use to 1 of my admins to be able to have axx to the gars settings and they cant view the GARS on the left side of the admincp.

i put my test user account to admin and had it access the gars settings under the admin permissions, and the gars was not showing. i put all permissions to yes, and it still didnt show.

why is it not showing on the left side of the admincp for other admins?

Is this something that used to work and now does not? Are they superadministrators?

GoTTi 01-24-2008 02:47 AM

no they are not set as super admins in the config file.

do they need to be to see the settings?

Morgan 01-24-2008 05:49 AM

They'd need to be an administrator with 'canadmingars' permission. If you want, there is the 'GARS - Can Administer' plugin where you could add to the top something like the following, but you can also use ACP -> Usergroups -> Administrator Permissions -> Edit Permissions -> Can Administer GARS -> Yes to set permission:

edit removed - problem should be solved - see post six

i dont understand morgan....

going to:

-> Usergroups -> Administrator Permissions -> Edit Permissions -> Can Administer GARS ->

for the admin, his option is set to yes. but he can not see the gars dropdown on the right side of his screen.

where is the gars can administer plugin?

oh what did you paste that code for in your last post? what do i do wth that?

Grab the GARS package, re-import the product-gars.xml file (do NOT uninstall, do allow overwrite), and that should take care of it.

that isnt working. this was pretty much a fresh install

Morgan 01-25-2008 01:17 PM

Go here, download GARS again, re-import the product-gars.xml file via the ACP (do NOT uninstall, do allow overwrite) or is that what you did?

GoTTi 01-26-2008 07:29 PM

ok now it works...

was something fixed in the xml file?

Morgan 01-26-2008 07:52 PM

Yep, as of post six. Nothing changed between post six and post eight.

GoTTi 01-27-2008 03:58 AM

if the xml file changed, howcome the release date on the file and the version number of the file isnt changed?

the users that pair for and own the license should be aware of the change right? thats why i didnt redownload the file because mine was same version.

Morgan 01-27-2008 05:17 AM

Sorry for the confusion, but the change was puny and IMO didn't warrant a new version number.

GoTTi 01-27-2008 08:12 AM

any change in the files, including the core file that makes the thing run, no matter how puny, is still considered a "fix" and is a alteration.

the version number should be updated and changed no matter what...i didnt know the update was done because it wasnt updated like it shouldv'e been. if it was, we wouldv'e never gone past post 7.
