 Post subject: How to grant a user and/or group to a limited set of content

I'm new to cmsms and have installed 2.2.3.1.

I've searched and read thru the 2.x docs but can't figure out how to limit edit rights. My use case is a handful of content pages with groups that allowed to edit specific pages.

Slap me if I've missed an obvious section explaining this ... seems like a silly question to me but can't figure it out.

Thanks

On the permissions tab of the edit-content page, if your account is the owner of the page, or you have sufficient permission.... you can assign a group as an 'additional editor' to that page.

Then members of the group will have access to that/those pages... and no others.

Additionally (it might not be obvious in the beginning):

- backend users do NOT need to be member of any of the (default) backend groups
- by default the backend group 'Editors' has the 'Manage all content' permission checked: "A user with this permission can perform all tasks on any and all content pages"

So make sure you:

- don't make those users member of the Editors group or
- remove the unneeded/conflicting permission(s) from the Editors group and/or
- create a custom backend group with proper permissions and make those users member of this new group

I logged in as admin and assumed I had full privileges...i'll confirm

I can see the groups and owner in the content area but can't make changes.

Thanks for the info

I just checked this via my phone and can see how to add content editors. My view from my pc with chrome doesn't allow edits. Must be a presentation issue with chrome.

Thanks for the help

I double checked using Chrome and that works for me. Note it's a multi-select box, so if you want more users selected you'll need to hold the ctrl key while selecting (on Windows).
