Add-On Type(s)

Extension

Tags

Use Entry Permissions to set more fine-grained control over what users can edit, including restricting which entries a group member is allowed to edit (entries must first be created by another admin user). So they can add ‘news’ entries, but can’t add a new ‘events’ entry, but is allowed to edit existing entries, and you can pick and choose which entries they can edit. It’s not an all or nothing setting.

What this extension does is piggy back off EE’s group permissions. If a particular group will be allowed any adding or editing privelages to a weblog, you’ll need to:

- assign the group access to the Publish and Edit pages
- assign the group the ability to edit entries by other authors
- assign any weblog to the user might have to post or edit entries in

What Entry Permissions lets you do is:

If the member group ‘editor’ has been assigned post and edit privileges to the ‘news’ and ‘events’ weblog, you can use Entry Permissions to restrict which entries they’re allowed to edit (entries must first be created by another admin user). So they can add ‘news’ entries, but can’t add a new ‘events’ entry, but is allowed to edit existing entries, and you can pick and choose which entries they can edit. It’s not an all or nothing setting.
