Registered Users Submit a Weblink

If you setup your site that only Registered users can submit a weblink you will an encounter error.  Once a user logs in and clicks on that menu item to submit a weblink they will get an error that says:

” You are not authorised to view this resource.”

Problem: I’ve tried 2 different scenarios and still get the same error:

  1. Created a menu weblink item and only viewable by Registered users
  2. Changed the Menu weblink item to be viewable by Public, changed the weblink menu module to be registered only.

Solution:

  1. In the backend find the file: /Components/com_weblinks/views/weblink/view.html.php
  2. Find the line: if ($user->get(‘gid’) < 19)
  3. Replace it with: if ($user->get(‘gid’) < 18)

Refresh your page and log in as a registered user.  You will be able to see the submit weblink menu item and a form to submit a weblink.

    Registered users want to submit file and need to view the list of submitted files under My account, how to achieve this?

    Thanks & Regards
