hi all,
I am still new in using SS. When I try to create/edit 'Security groups' after clicking on security button in the CMS, I see 10 permissions, but in this page :\", I see more permissions. Do I need to make changes to get all all permissions ?

I want to create a group, whose members can read the sites and blogs, but only can post comments. Will "Can view any page on the site" code achieve that ?

I don't know about the extra permission codes in that list but these links should cover every thing you need to get the user restrictions you want.

Thanks again. It worked great.

I added the following code to : class Page_Controller extends ContentController implements PermissionProvider.

function providePermissions(){
return array(
"COMMENTER" => "Can view any page on the site",

And created a group with "COMMENTER" permissions. Now a user in the group can only post comments.
