    I'd like to add an admin field so that I can switch on or off certain signup pages.

    Need this:
    1) how to add an admin only field
    2) how to read if that field is 'on'/'off' on a signup page
    3) same as #2 but in site.php

    thanks,

    david

    In case of you do not add user field to either signup or profile form then only admin can see/edit it.
    So just add new field at aMember CP -> Configuration -> Add User Fields

    You can add two type of fields - SQL and DATA:
    DATA: $user->data()->get('field_name');
    SQL: $user->field_name;

    Do you mind to elaborate on point 2? What do you want to achieve here?

    these are not user fields- this is so the admin can control if part of a signup form is viewable or not.

    Ummm ... a plugin with the settings (ie Signup Settings) which has the required settings so you can fiddle them in the ACP problem is that you would need to build a signup template which loads the settings and handles the insertions. This would mean the default brick system would be unusable for the optional sections.

    should be addable using a site.php edit i would imagine. I just want to add an admin field, and check its status!

    In site.php
    Code:
    global  $myStuffSwitch;
    $myStuffSwitch = true;
    
    in form;
    Code:
        global  $myStuffSwitch;
        if( $myStuffSwitch )
        {
             /// Added block
        }
    
    Should work .. maybe .. perhaps

    Right- but I want
    $myStuffSwitch = true;
    to be set by an option in the amember admin GUI.

    {
        function __construct()
        {
            parent::__construct('Option');
            $this->setTitle(___('Options'));
            $this->data['help-id'] = 'Setup/Options';
        }
        function initElements()
        {
            $this->addElement('advcheckbox', 'myoption.switch', null)
            ->setLabel(___('Enable Switch'));
        }
    }

    David,

    Do you want to control it on form basic (checkbox in signup form edit) or globally (checkbox in configuration)?
    What is part of signup form you want to hide/show? Do you want to skip some bricks?

    Thanks.

    globally (checkbox in configuration) - in the admin setup or other admin screen.

    I'd like to essentially hide the entire signup form if this is enabled and show another one text.

    EG
    unchecked - > show order form
    checked -> show signup form/waiting list (no order)

    Here is small mock up for misc plugin that do it, you can extend it according your requirements
    PHP:
    <?php
    class Am_Plugin_HideSignupForm extends Am_Plugin
    {
        protected 
    $_configPrefix 'misc.';

        function 
    _initSetupForm(Am_Form_Setup $form)
        {
            
    $form->addAdvCheckbox('hide')
                ->
    setLabel('Hide Signup Form');
        }

        function 
    onLoadSignupForm(Am_Event $e)
        {
            if (!
    $this->getConfig('hide')) return;

            
    $form $e->getReturn();
            if (
    $form->code == 'OU0DHw7XE') {
                
    $view $this->getDi()->view;
                
    $view->title "Your Title";
                
    $view->content = <<<CUT
    <strong>Your message here</strong>
    CUT;
                
    $view->display('member/layout.phtml');
                throw new 
    Am_Exception_Redirect;
            }
        }
    }
    You need to put this code to file
    amember/application/default/plugins/misc/hide-signup-form.php
    and then enable plugin at aMember CP -> Configuration -> Setup/Configuration -> Plugins (Other Plugins)

    I took this and made CSaLT -- Coming Soon & Limited Time, it does the following
    • Start/End Date for a sale/campaign
    • Limit total sales and/or sales to a client
    • Optionally totally hide product from all but the CSaLT designated signup form
    • Redirect user to a page (default error message if blank) for
      • Too Early -- Tried before start date
      • Too Late -- Tried after finish date
      • Too Many -- Sold out
      • Too Many User -- limit per client
    I think I have the coding part done, just needs some documentation though. The options make it twiddly but it is set out to be easily understood if you understand the concept.
