1. Hugh is (technically) on vacation for the rest of September, travelling to Europe for his son's wedding in England, and to meet up with Rob in La Rochelle, France. He will be checking the forums most days, and providing some support, but his time will be limited, and he will be unable to do any custom coding work. Apologies in advance for any inconvenience.

Cheking for details view

    I have a list where the data is entered only by the admin. In some rows, some elements have no value.

    I want all the elements to be visible in the 'edit' view so that I can fill in the required elements.

    In the 'details' view (for the public), I want to hide the elements that have no value.

    I added the following condition to default_group.php:

    <?php if ($element->value) { ?>
    <?php }?>

    This does hide the empty elements in details view, but it also hides them in edit view.

    Is there a way to make them hide only in details view?

    Alternately, how can I add a condition to show the empty elements only to 'special' users.

    Yes you could code this and I'm pretty sure there's info about this in the Wiki as I remember a fairly recent post about it.

    However you could also just create two forms, one for edit and one for form view.

    Generally this works:


    if (JRequest::getVar('view') == 'details') {
     // you are in a details view.....
