Add a "Manage Group" link on a group page.

Post by Dragosvr92 »

I know we already have two places where to manage groups in the UCP and ACP.
We dont manage groups that often, but when we do, it takes us four clicks to get to the manage page, in both the UCP and the ACP pages.

Could we just add a "Manage Group" url on a groups page, that links to the group manage page from preferably the UCP, or even ACP?

Example in the attachment bellow. Link is placed on the right side.

I dont think it is asking too much. It would be much easier to just click the group on index, and from there to go manage it.

I don't see why not. We have an "Administer User" link under user profiles so this makes sense. I think the position is fine as well.

I was later thinking of an edit icon, besides the right side of the Group-title, but that may not be the best idea.
The current position seems more like phpbb's style. Maybe its an idea for the future style replacing prosilver?

Btw, this is how i edited the link.

Open: memberlist_body.html
Find:

Code: Select all

<p>{GROUP_DESC} {GROUP_TYPE}</p>
Change with:

Code: Select all

<p>{GROUP_DESC} {GROUP_TYPE} <a style="float:right;">Manage Group</a></p>
I dont know about making it work. I guess it may need some new php entries to allow permissions to see it.
Im okay if its just available to the admins/founders.
