User Permissions

Is there a role that will allow users to edit a module, but not change it's settings?

i have a situation where the user is just allowed to edit the html content of the module, but wont ever need to change the settings, so i would like to hide it away from them so they cant do any damage.

Re: User Permissions

Administration > Site Settings > Security > Permissions > Roles NOT Allowed to Edit Feature Instance Settings

You can add users to roles defined there and then they cannot edit the settings.

Hope it helps,

Joe

ps, I moved this question from the Developer Forum to the Questions About Site Administration forum. The Developer Forum is only for asking about working with the source code in Visual Studio.

Re: User Permissions

Doesn't work for me. Am i missing something

  • Added a user to Role 'Content Authors'
  • In Administration Menu > Site Settings > Security Permissions>
  • Roles that can edit content and style template > 'Content Authors' Checked
  • Roles not allowed to edit feature instance settings > 'Content Authors' Checked

 

In the 'Feature Instance Settings'

  • Roles that can edit content > 'Content Authors' Checked

Now, when the user logs in the 'Pencil' icon is not visible i.e hea cannot edit anything

If user is individually added via Feature Instance, then he can edit the content and the Feature settings(which he shouldn't)

Thanks,

nitin

Re: User Permissions

Sorry everyone, the issue was not with mojoportal . The 'Pencil' icon was not showing in Opera 11, tried IE for once and looks just fine.

Thank again :)

Re: User Permissions

Is there some sort of Role caching on? When i make the changes they don't show up instantly.

The issue seems to be still unresolved. Same user can edit in one browser and not in another. sad

any help would be welcome

regards,

nitin

Re: User Permissions

Roles are stored in a cookie, so if you add a user to a role he needs to logout and login again to get the new role.

Re: User Permissions

Thanks Steve. Re-logged in in the user and the permissions work fine. Sorry for the trouble :)
