Page Edit Per Role

Assign edit access to roles on a per-page basis.


Overview

The user must already have page-edit permission on one of their roles in order to get edit access to assigned pages. Otherwise, they will only gain view access.

This module is fully functional as-is, but intended as a proof-of-concept for those wanting to go further with adding custom edit and/or view access.

NOTE: Original idea is from PageEditPerRole module by Ryan Cramer, http://processwire.com

How to install

  1. Copy the PageEditPerRole.module file to /site/modules/
  2. Go to Modules in the ProcessWire admin and click "Check for new modules"
  3. Click "install" for "Page Edit Per Role"

How to use

  1. Create a new role called "editor" (or whatever you want to call it) and give the role "page-edit" permission. If you already have a role in place that you want to use, that is fine too.
  2. Under "Access > Roles" locate the role you want to assign edit access to. Edit this role.
  3. For this roles's "Editable Pages" field: select one or more pages you want users with this role to be able to edit.
  4. Save the role.
  5. Under "Access > Users" locate the user you want to apply the role to. Edit this user.
  6. For this user's "Roles" field, select the new role you added - "editor".
  7. Save the user and your are done.
  8. To test, login as the user you edited to confirm it works how you expect.

Install and use modules at your own risk. Always have a site and database backup before installing new modules.

“The end client and designer love the ease at which they can update the website. Training beyond how to log in wasn’t even necessary since ProcessWire’s default interface is straightforward.” —Jonathan Lahijani
