Blog vs. User Permissions?

Hi, I'm trying to create a security group with members who have edit access to the blog only (they may not edit the other pages). I found this "Blog management" right in the permissions settings. But if I check this and uncheck all other, the users are not allowed to see the admin panel at all.

So, how can I achieve a "manage only blog" group?

You'll need to let them log into the backend (Access to Pages Section, tick), or put the blog management widget on the blog holder/tree.

The management widget lets users post from the front end, though the editor isn't quite as complete as the backend CMS one. Specifically there are issues when it comes to uploading images (you can't). You'll also need to create a method for them to log in. A direct link to /Security/login?backUrl=/blog should probably do it, or you could investigate the member profiles module

Hi, thanks for the reply!
The management widget seems to be no option for us (because we need images).

So the blog managers have "Access to Pages Section" and than we have to restrict edit access to all other pages, right?

EDIT: Well, this approach is working. Unfortunately not with our installation (Subsites Module) but we will figure this out ...
