Databases in Clubs

Recommended Posts

This app allows creating club features based on the Pages databases. E. g. if you have an Articles database, the app will allow the clubs‘ owners to create articles within the club. Any database that exists in Pages can be added to the club. The permission for databases is defined in the the clubs permissions for each user group. Only databases that use categories can be used in clubs. Visit a demo club to see how it looks like.

Features:

  • Set per group permission for every database in the group settings
  • Database category permissions are replaced by club permissions
  • Club header is added to category index and record
  • Club owner can change the category name and description
  • Show records in the club overview tab
  • Clubs use database templates for Category List, Record, and Record Form set in the database settings

NOTE: Pages must be installed and enabled to use this app.

This is an amazing idea! 🙂 I have a couple of pre-sale questions:

1) Is it possible to limit adding records to only the club leaders and moderators? Is this adjustable on a per-database basis?

2) If I have custom fields defined for my clubs, is it possible to have certain databases only show up in clubs that have a certain value selected? For example, I have a custom club field where the user can select their club category and can choose from either discussion or books. If I have a database for chapters, is it possible the option to use that database is only available is the user selected the books category?

I suspect this may require custom coding. If so, are you available for custom work?

Not right now. The permission for the club category are overloaded with club permission. If the club is public, then everybody can create records. If open - only club members. If closed or private, the records are not shown anywhere else except of in the club. Restricting add permission to club owner only can be done in the future version.

No, the permission to add a club feature is (like for any other feature) set on the group permission. It does not depend on club type or certain club values. This can be done as custom solution.

Generally yes. But I am not able to make any urgent work right now due to pandemic measurements that are unpredictable. I depend entirely on kindergarten child care. If it is suddenly not available, then I am not available either. Unfortunately.

Hi there,

I'd like to understand a bit better how it works. When a record is added to the Database through a Club, it is then is it visible for all clubs with access to the same Database/Category, and Pages displaying the same Database? Or each record added by the club is "isolated" and accesible through the Club page. Also, related to the same concern: what happens to the Database entries when the Club requires users to join to display the contents?

Kind regards.

Technically, it is a category in Pages database that is assigned to this club only. It behaves the same way other club nodes do, like forums, blogs, galleries and so on.

The same as above. Database categories within clubs inherit club permissions and ignores permission set for the whole database in ACP. So, yes, if it is a private club, one has to join to see the content stored in this database category. If it is a public club, it is visible to any user, like any other node within public club.
