Support » Plugin: ABASE » Permissions / roles support?

  • Resolved Satri


    Hi Richard – I believe ABASE is the perfect plugin for a new website I started building.

    My question; does ABASE supports limiting database edition based on user roles / permissions? According to the documentation, the answer is ‘no’, right?

    My use case: it’s a for a crowdsourced database project. I need db tables to be viewable by all, but editable only by chosen members (to avoid spam).

    I think I already have a solution, but I wanted your advice first 🙂 My solution would be to put the ABASE forms to edit the database on pages that are themselves (the pages) accessible only to specific roles (e.g. logged in users). Several plugins can help me do that (such as the plugin simply named ‘Members’). I don’t see why this would not work.

    Thanks for any feedback Richard! I should dive into actually using ABASE in the coming weeks. Cheers! — Alex

    I think your solution works fine. The ABASE short code that produces the form is the same short code that executes the update. Since that short code would be on a page only accessible to a user with authorized access, only a user with authorized access should be able to update the form.

    Thanks for trying ABASE and let me know how it goes!
