    Hi

    is it possible to give users administrator rights per channel?
    It would be a nice future in Foyer if it could.

    Hi @johanvb,

    There is no specific access restrictions management built into Foyer.
    WordPress does have some sort of access restriction. For example users woth the ‘Author’ role can only edit their own posts (and Foyer channels). Not sure if this fits your needs but you could give it a try. Author role explained:

    An author has far fewer permissions than editors. They cannot edit pages and are unable to alter other users’ content. In addition, they lack any sort of administrative capabilities.

    What they can do is create, edit, delete, and publish their own posts (and upload media files). This makes their role pretty clear – authors are responsible for creating content, and nothing more.

    If you’d like send me a more detailed plan of how you would like access to be restricted, then I’ll add it to my list of feature requests 🙂

    Best

    Sorry for my late response.
    I have a setup with 3 channels. I would like to give some users acces only too 1 channel so they can add posts on that channel.

    Hoi Johan @johanvb, I guess this is not possible with the default WordPress roles (where 1 Author role user can edit only their own channel and slides, but the other 2 Author users can not access that channel or slides).

    The concept that you are looking for is grouping of users, where all users in a certain group have access to channels and slides that are created by any of the users of that group. I have no experience with this, but it sounds like something more WordPress users would need, so maybe there is a plugin for that. Also not sure if Foyer plays nice with plugins like that, but please give it a try!

    Maybe ask the creators of this plugin if groups are possible with their plugin, or if they know how to do this:

    Let me know what you find!
