Jump to: navigation, search

What's it all about?

This document is about a system of backend user groups useful for larger sites with quite some authors.

The systems consists of

  1. a "basic_editor" user group defining rights given to all authors who should write new pages without the permission to make them public
  2. a "basic_chief_editor" user group with all the rights given to the "basic editors" and additional rights for "chief editors"
  3. a "domain" user group per customer linking the users in the "basic editor" and "basic chief editor" groups to a special site

The "basic_editor" user group

   web, web_list, web_layout, web_view
   file, file_list, file_images
   user, user_task, user_actions, user_setup

Putting it together

 Max Sampleman should be an editor for domain
   1. Create a new backend user Max Mustermann
   2. Select the groups
     xyz_com (=domain group)
 Jenni Samplewoman should be a chief editor for domain
   1. Create a new backend user Jenni Samplewoman
   2. Select the groups
     xyz_com (=domain group)
 Make sure the pages of your tree for a domain have the right group permissions assigned in the "Web > Access" module.
