Firstly all this information is in the tutorials:

But this may be a bit overwhelming for many, digging through all the tempcode to find what you want.

First example will cover how to make a block ONLY visible to staff:

There are plenty of other examples on this. Feel free to ask if there is a specific permission you are trying to achieve.

One more example if will cover is hiding a block if you are viewing your site on a mobile. For me I am hiding my top nav bar and also my image slider.

To hide a block while viewing on a mobile do the following.

Basically this is saying if you are NOT viewing this on a mobile, then show the checklist block.

Regards blocks, permissions or visibility feel free to ask here.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
