website snippet block dependend on URL/User/Attribute?

I am trying to prepare Odoo V8 Website Editor for new users and to achive this task, I need to limit "INSERT BLOCK" options. Actually I would like to build my own snippets and provide only them. This part of task is clear for me - I need to inherit from website module proper XML and play a bit with Xpath, like below

<xpath expr="//ul[@class='nav navbar-nav nav-tabs']" position="replace">

...some HTML...


The real issue is to REMOVE this limitation of blocks, when someone will be trying to access Website Editor in another context. So let`s say that I would like to have possibility to swicht between:

  • customized/limited number of block options
  • standard number of blocks


From what I see right now Odoo is always processing my snippet.xml from my own_module and apply always my changes, when my module is on. That means, that when I remove standard blocks, I cannot restore them dynamically (I do not know how).

Are website editor settings shared between modules?

Can I controll it somehow?

I need my limitations either for special users or for URLs.


Thanks in advance,
