    Permissions by user Link to this post

    Hi, the default permission schema for pages works by groups : I would like to have the ability to set permissions for a specific user

    is this possible, and how ?

    The only solution I can come up with is to make a new usergroup for each user, when they register at your site. However I'm open to new and better ideas on how this can be done and how the user could be set to be able to post and edit their own content, but not that of others.

    I too am looking for a similar option.

    The site I am working on is one where I have the potential to have a large member base and want each member to have a page tree in the CMS that they can edit with their own content.

    It would also be handy to allow the uplaoding of data to default to the members data area, but that is further down the track.

    How would you go about extending the member class to be limited to their own folder that they could upload content to. This would be the only content that they could access when editing their pages. Ie add pictures to the cms etc.

    Hi there

    Anyone came up with a good solution for this?
    I've been trying to attach users to each page tree in the site, but this doesn't work for me. In fact I can't add members.

    Been trying with:


    static $has_many = array(
    'Members' => 'Member'

    And when adding:

    The above just gives an error. I've been thinking about going on with groups instead, perhaps thats a solution.

    Anyone has any input on how to handle such user/member related issues?
