Page Security by Contexture
Restrict Editing, But Not Access? (2 posts)

    Hello, I'm wondering if your plugin can be used to allow anyone and everyone, whether logged in or not, to view every page and post, but to restrict who among the registered users is allowed to edit pages and posts?

    Essentially, the website I run has about 20 users, some of whom work on one section of the site, and some of whom work on another. I'd like to make two user groups, one for each section, and then say that users of one section can edit one set of pages, and users from the other section can edit the other set of pages. If you're in section 1, you can edit pages in set 1, but NOT set 2, and vice versa. Could your plugin help me accomplish this?

    I apologize if this wasn't clear enough, just let me know and I'll clarify. Thanks so much.

    I've gotten a few requests from people wanting to give page "ownership" features to specific users or groups - but this is outside the scope of this particular plugin (the goal here is to limit "users" as opposed to "admins").

    However, there is a good chance we'll do a plugin at some point in the near future that adds the kind of functionality you've described (it would be useful for creating "community-driven" sites). I can't really say when though, as plugin development is an " in our free-time" endeavor.
