Restrict user from news module categories

Post by Sendlingur »

I was thinking....
I have few back-end users which can add/edit articles in the News module. The News module has 8 categories .
Is it somehow possible to restrict user access to some categories. For example user 1 can add/edit articles in all categories but user 2 can only add/edit articles in category 1 and 5.

Not out of the box, no. You could probably edit the template to only show the applicable categories in the dropdown for that user, it would be a low-tech, low-security option but would do the job.
Not getting the answer you need? CMSMS support options
