Cool Add-On - Enable/disable Blocks For Guests Or Registered Users

I thought I'd mention this awesome add-on that I've been using for a bit now, and that I think everyone should have cause I discover cool new things to do with it everyday…



This add-on lets you show certain blocks or sections to specific usergroups, for example; Registered users or Guests only, and also for different devices: phone, tablet, pc.



A good example is the banners. You can have two Banners blocks. One to display to your registered customers, and the other for your Guests.



Other cool uses:


  • Hide the News block for Guest.
  • Show different sets of links in the header or footer based on guest or registered user.
  • Create a new Usergroup and only activate certain blocks for people registered with that usergroup.
  • Using a responsive theme? Are the banners too small on a phone. Make a different set of banners (tall instead of wide), and set those visible only to “mobile”.



    Since CS-Cart is entirely organized with blocks, you can even modify it in a way that guests can't see products unless they are “registered”.



    The possibilities are endless, and I think even CS-Cart should think about implementing it. But to be honest, for $15, it's totally worth it!



    Anyway, here's the link:

Do not worry! CS-Cart customers buy our addons. I think, they do not talk about them as the modules work correctly :)

Hello eComLabs ;-)



I bought your addon just now. Nice Addon ! But I red your description too speed…



So, for a “standard” block it’s ok… BUT not for a block in a “Product Tab”… and of course not for a Tab…

So a “registered block” inside a tab is still activ… even if I’m not registered… normal?



Can you add this fonctionnality for Product Tab?



Thanks !

We have added the required functionality. Please download the latest version of the module from the order page and unpack it to the root directory of your CS-Cart installation. There is no need to re-install the module in the admin panel.



If you have any questions, please let me know

Hello,



Ouaaaa ;-) Thank you very much !!

It’s ok now ;-)



We discussed with EcomLabs just now and he resolved one issue in few minutes! Thanks for this great technical support and great Addon!



See You Soon

I think this is a wonderful add-on, but can it be expanded to include the vendor user group? For example, we do not show the vendor logo for certain vendor user group.
