PageEditLockFields by Ryan Cramer

Lock page fields or properties from editing on a page-by-page basis.

Page Edit Lock Fields module

ProcessWire comes with a page-lock feature, where you can lock an entire page from being edited. The Page Edit Lock Fields module expands upon that feature by making it more granular, providing the ability to lock individual fields in the page, rather than the entire page (or entire field across all pages).

While ProcessWire also provides the ability to lock fields independent of pages, this module enables you to lock fields directly on pages and in the page editor, when and where you are most likely to want to do so. Read more

“To Drupal, or to ProcessWire? The million dollar choice. We decided to make an early switch to PW. And in retrospect, ProcessWire was probably the best decision we made. Thanks are due to ProcessWire and the amazing system and set of modules that are in place.” —Unni Krishnan, Founder of PigtailPundits
