Ah I have read abit more about it, and after using it in you template I understand it better. and I have check all rbac on yiigits, and it seems that dektrium still is the most popular, closely followed by yii2mod. Others seem to been much less popular.
Thanks for adding the instructions and saving email. That helped a lot. I did not realize there where so many migrations to run. I followed the instructions but was still was getting migration issues. Turns out that md files are auto-opened in a markdown editor that displays double dashes as one elongated dash. And composer did not install the dektrium module. But after these 2 problems where fixed all migrations ran smoothly.
I did not really dove into the code jet, just a quick test drive. But still like to give you my first impression. (please note that this is not meant as critique.) I will definitive be using your template, but I guess its going to take some time to get familiar with everything.
Rev. History (/site/page?view=changes) only shows information about rev.1 not 2 and 3…
your bump-version script did not seem to make any changes to CHANGES.mkd. I guess this is a bug?
the pulldown menu for the App, holds dead links. and i cannot seem to find the App controller.
im not sure what it suppose to do. But the controller name seem to be controller, which is a very unfortunate name, because searching in the project for “controller” results in almost 5k hits.
When doing a DB Backup, im getting the following error:
PHP Notice – yii\base\ErrorException Undefined index: Create Table
but when clicking the firefox back button it reloads the page and list the created backup. so the the backup creation itself works but. But possibly a bug?
One the signup form and the page you see after clicking the registration link, the error messages are displayed double. But other error messages are working fine. possibly a bug?
I cant really figure out what the Lookups CRUD is for. I mean, what does it lookup? And its not clear what kind of input is expected in the “Sort Order” field on the create page.
You added “nemmo/yii2-attachments”, so i kind of thought you would have used that for the contact-form. but apparently its not used for that. So, then where did you use the attachments uploader?
Its nice that you also like to make a distinction between site admin and developer. And i see that the gii tool in the settings menu will only be there when you login as Dev. But i cant figure out how to login as Dev or how to add isDev to the rules. I tried:
new rule: isDev, app\rbac\AuthorRule
new role: dev, Developer
edit user > assign role ‘dev(Developer)’
i tried reloging in. But i don’t get the gii link in menu.
In the config folder there are normal files and .local files. I guessed that when in ‘dev’ environment it would load the .local and otherwise the normal once. But i see they are maged together in the web.php file. But the web.local.php file seem to be not merged. Could you explain what is going on there? I mean how is decided when to marge the 2 and when not.
i will dive into to code the coming week, and maybe ask you some more questions, if you don’t mind?
And thanks for your help thusfar.
