Rights to submit articles and read existing articles nothing else

Post by Anagastes » Fri Feb 28, 2020 2:59 pm

As described in the title, I try to set the rights in phpmyfaq so that there is a group that can submit new articles.

They should also be allowed to read existing articles. But they should not be able to edit them.

Also they should not be able to publish the articles. Only the group of moderators will be allowed to do that later.

But this does not work. Does it work with phpmyfaq at all?

Hi,

yes, that should work. Could you please provide more information what you configured?

I am currently a bit overwhelmed with phpmyfaq (so many settings). I will try to explain.

There are currently two users with the following rights.

- admin (can do everything)
- Test (cannot do anything)

Two groups and the following rights.

- Moderator (can do everything)
- Submit (add FAQ, read FAQs, read categories, read sections, read news)

But the user "Test" currently only sees the item "Create FAQ" in phpmyfaq.

Am I doing something wrong? On request I will gladly give access to my test installation via PM.

Hi,

in which group is the user "Test"? In the group "Submit"?

If yes, it looks correct.

Yes, the user "Test" is in the group "Submit".

But he should also be able to read existing articles in the backend.

Do I have a mistake in thinking? Because that way he can't even search or find his submitted articles. :shock:

Hi,

I tried to reproduce your issue but no luck. Do you have more information for me?

I can give you the logins of the two accs on my test installation (via PM), then you can look at it directly.

Would that be OK?

Hi,

you forgot to add the permission to edit FAQs. The read permissions are only for the frontend. I added the permission to edit and now the user can see and edit FAQs.

Yes, I understand.

But then the user can also edit the posts that were created by the admin/moderator, if I see that correctly.

So a "separate" area where he can create/edit etc. and only his stuff is currently not possible?

Hi,

you are right, that's not possible right now.But it's planned for v3.1: https://github.com/thorsten/phpMyFAQ/issues/1072

Is that the feature you need?

Yeah, that would be perfect.

Because then you can make groups within an organization that only deal with a certain topic area.

Then I am eagerly waiting for 3.1!

And thousand thanks for your commitment. I will leave a donation next time. :)
