  • It would be nice if it was possible to “pick two” (or more). But, I just re-arranged how I do things to make it work for me with one choice. I just like how this program works inside the post area… so I’m reworking how I do other things so it works for me. All set. Thanks.

    Hi Laura Lee,

    I’m afraid, but you can only select one property for access control on a post. Did this mainly for performance reasons. Otherwise there would be a lot of database work to be done (checking two lists of properties for matching items) on every post just to decide if a post is displayed or not. Anyway: many-to-many-relations are mostly a bad idea, when you need to keep things straight and clear. It’s hard enough

    I already did a lot of brainwork on that topic. I finally came to the conclusion, that multiple access areas on a user account are enough to satisfy all possible use cases. Instead of assigning “blacksmiths” and “carpenters” to a post, the same goal can be achieved by creating a group named “craftsmen” and assign it to both the post and the affected users.

    Anyways, thanks for you feedback!
