Website with department management (3 posts)

    I am trying to build a website that has options to create departments and divisions within the website. I want users to be able to edit only their pages within their division and their permissions can be elevated to the entire department if granted.

    Is there a plugin out there that does this?

    I thought that maybe if I had the main website menu be only editable by a super-admin, then submenus would then be controlled by each division and then those submenus would then be added to the main site's navigation dynamically under the division header name it would work.

    Does anyone know of a plugin that would dynamically add sub menus to a global menu?

    Any help on this subject would be great.

    You may want to look into (and study carefully) WordPress Multisite if I'm understanding your question correctly.

    I have looked into wordpress multisite; however, the problem is that I need a global menu that has the pages that the deparments create. I also need the search, events, and categories all shared between departments.

    I have found that multisite would not be beneficial for having all of these things global. I have found that using swith_blog() hook can go between sites to grab site menus, but I have heard this is really bad to do on the front end.

    If there is a plugin that can load menus within menus dynamically then I think I could do what I am after with some basic user permission plugins.

    Unless there is already a department plugin.
