[Solved] Whats the Smarty variable for User id and group id ?


Recommended Posts


it's depends on which page you are maybe, here some you can have everywhere (or almost)

$cookie->id_customer maybe.

For the group, you can use $customer->getGroups() or Customer::getGroupsStatic($id_customer); but you can find better, sorry I don't remember exactly.

I used this on the override FrontController.php (attached). You should copy the entire FrontController.php and paste it on /override/classes/FrontController.php. Paste the following code on line 32.


This checks if a user is on certain group.


$customer = new Customer(intval($cookie->id_customer));
/* The group (number 1, in this case) you want to check */
$specificGroup = $customer->isMemberOfGroup(1);
$smarty->assign('customerGroup', $specificGroup);


I created the "customerGroup" variable and I used it on the blockcategories.tpl file to show another categories block with only certain categories (the ones who's have a special discount). As you can see, I wanted to show categories 22, 23 and 24.



{if $customerGroup}	  
<div id="categories_block_left" class="block">
<h4>{l s='Categories' mod='blockcategories'}</h4>
<div class="block_content">
 <ul class="tree {if $isDhtml}dhtml{/if}">
 {foreach from=$blockCategTree.children item=child name=blockCategTree}
{* If the category is 22, 23 or 24, show it *}
  {if $child.id==22 || $child.id==23 || $child.id==24}
{if $smarty.foreach.blockCategTree.last}
 {include file="$branche_tpl_path" node=$child last='true'}
 {include file="$branche_tpl_path" node=$child}
 {* Javascript moved here to fix bug #PSCFI-151 *}
 <script type="text/javascript">
 // <![CDATA[
  // we hide the tree only if JavaScript is activated
  $('div#categories_block_left ul.dhtml').hide();
 // ]]>


Good luck.


Note: It worked perfectly with, but with it throws a warning and I get it working just by adding the code directly to the FrontController.php file (and not the override one). Anyway, this is the wrong way ;)
