In this Joomla, Nivoslider plugin used for the slider and I wanted to add sorting option to the ordering field.so I have just checked and get that same functionality provided by article section in Joomla so I have checked the code and use it.
Let’s see how I use the code to develop edit and save sorting option in Joomla.
First of all, I have replaced two variable defined in top of the page are $canOrder and $saveOrder and added $params
$canOrder = true; $saveOrder = $listOrder == 'a.ordering';
with below line of code
$canOrder = $user->authorise('core.edit.state', 'com_contact.category'); $saveOrder = 'ordering'; $params = (isset($this->state->params)) ? $this->state->params : new JObject();
Next, I have replaced the title with a link so when user clicks on it, save option will be enabled.Let’s see below line of code
replaced with following line of code
items, 'filesave.png', 'items.saveorder'); ?>
then after, Go to the middle of the page where the loop is used there were some variables which are just defined as true like
$canCreate = true; $canEdit = true; $canCheckin = true; $canEditOwn = true; $canChange = true;
Same here, replace above variables with below line of code
$canCreate = $user->authorise('core.create', 'com_contact.category.'.$item->catid); $canEdit = $user->authorise('core.edit', 'com_contact.category.'.$item->catid); $canCheckin =$user->authorise('core.manage', 'com_checkin') || $item->checked_out == $userId || $item->checked_out == 0; $canEditOwn = $user->authorise('core.edit.own', 'com_contact.category.'.$item->catid) && $item->created_by == $userId; $canChange = $user->authorise('core.edit.state', 'com_contact.category.'.$item->catid) && $canCheckin;
That’s about it. I want to say a huge thanks to various sources around the web that I visited while trying to evaluate how to create this code. I’m sure someone there has done this already & probably done it better, but I just wanted to share how I did it and hopefully it will help someone
