How to disable the new comment area but leave comments visible
#1

Hi, I would like to fill through PHP the name and email of the user to integrate commentics fully with my website.
That works:

              <?php
                $cmtx_name = 'some user';
                $cmtx_email = 'some@some.com';
                $cmtx_website = '';
                $cmtx_town = '';
                $cmtx_country = '';
                $cmtx_state = '';
                $cmtx_identifier = '3';
                $cmtx_reference  = 'myref';
                $cmtx_folder     = '/mycomments/';
                require($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . $cmtx_folder . 'frontend/index.php');
              ?>

I would like also to show the comments without enabling at all a new comment if the user is not logged in my website.

How can i do that in PHP?

Thanks
Luigi

So you want to show the form only if the user is logged into your site?

Correct: if the user is logged in (with my user authentication system), PHP will provide username. If not, I just want to show comments but don't allow new ones...

Any idea on how to do that programmatically (=not from control panel)? Thanks

STEP ONE

At the top of your integration code add this line:

PHP Code:
$is_logged false

So it should look like this:

PHP Code:
<?php
$is_logged 
false;

$cmtx_identifier '2';
$cmtx_reference  'Page Two';
$cmtx_folder     '/upload/';
require(
$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . $cmtx_folder 'frontend/index.php');
?>

Obviously set it to true or false depending if your user is logged in.

STEP TWO

In /upload/frontend/index.php

Above this line:
PHP Code:
require_once(CMTX_DIR_SYSTEM 'startup.php'); 

Add this:
PHP Code:
define('CMTX_IS_LOGGED'$is_logged); 

STEP THREE

In /upload/frontend/controller/main/form.php

After this line:
PHP Code:
public function index() { 

Add this:
PHP Code:
$this->data['is_logged'] = CMTX_IS_LOGGED

STEP FOUR

In /upload/frontend/view/default/template/main/form.tpl

Before this line:
Code:
<div id="cmtx_preview"></div>

Add this:
Code:
<?php if ($is_logged) { ?>

STEP FIVE

In same file

After this:
Code:
<?php } else { ?>
    <div class="cmtx_form_disabled"><?php echo $lang_error_form_disabled; ?></div>
<?php } ?>

Add this:
Code:
<?php } else { ?>
    Please login to post a comment
<?php } ?>
