"Permission “page-sort” for template “ ... ” not allowed (requires “page-edit” permission)"
– This lovely error message is thrown at me, if, as implied by it, I try to add (to my "editor" role) the permission "page-sort" for a specific template, without the permission "page-edit" enabled for the same template.
Seems like it's been mentioned a few times before but never properly answered, by e.g. @Robin S ... :
"Allow the granting of page-sort permission independent of page-edit": https://github.com/processwire/processwire-requests/issues/29
Why do I wanna do this?:
I have a page tree structure 🌳 as so:
– Page a [C1_p] – Page b [C1_p] Different category [C2]
– Page c [C2_p] – Page d [C2_p] ________________________
The page "Category" has the page-template "C1",
the pages "Page a" and "Page b" both have the page-template "C1_p".
The page "Different category" has the page-template "C2"
the pages "Page c" and "Page d" both have the page-template "C2_p".
The two pages called "Category" and "Different category" do not have any content, they only serve as containers for pages belonging to that category.
I want my "editor" role not to be able to do anything at all with these pages "Category" and "Different category"; i.e. I do not want my editor to be able to edit, move, unpublish, hide, lock, delete (or do anything else to) these category pages.
– So, I want my "editor" role to have the "page-edit" permission for pages with the templates "C1_p" and "C2_p", but not for the pages with the category templates "C1" and "C2",
Also, I want my "editor" role to be able to move the pages with the templates "C1_p" and "C2_p" within their parent-pages.
But if I just simply add the "page-edit" and the "page-move" permissions for the "C1_p" and "C2_p" templates, then, using the "editor" role, I am not able to move these "C1_p" (and "C2_p") -template-based pages. I can actually click "MOVE" next to them and then move them, but... then I will be met by the error message "You do not have permission to sort pages using this parent - /Category/".
– So, I try to add the "page-sort" (description: "permission to sort child pages") permission to the "C1" and "C2" templates... but then trying to do so I am met by the initially mentioned error message ! Permission “page-sort” for template “C1” not allowed (requires “page-edit” permission) .
And, as mentioned, I do not want my editor role users to be able to edit these category ("C1" and "C2") pages...
– what to do about this? 😅
All the best,
for a client website I need to implement a "reviewer" role. "Reviewers" should be able to review new (unpublished) articles to give feedback to editors, but not have the permission to change them.
I built a new "reviewer" role that only has page-view permissions for the respective templates, but this permission does not include viewing unpublished pages. How can I grant them access to the unpublished articles without giving them page-edit permission?
I want my editors to be able to use the page lister, especially the bookmarks. I added the page-lister permission to the editor role, but Page lister ("Find" menu item) does not show. Is there anything else I have to do? Links to bookmarks work for the editors, but I would be glad to show them the menu item as well.
Maybe this has something to do with the long history of the site (started with ProcessWire 2.4 and upgraded to 3.0.148 over the years)?
this is the first time I'm using ProcessWire.
I thought I get how fields, template and pages work, but when I create a template in the CMS, it doesn't generate any file in site/templates/
Then I thought I might need to create a blank file myself manually on the FTP (which already seems odd to me).
Once I did that, I tried to add fields to the template but again, doesn't write to the php file.
When I create a new page and apply said template to it, the page stay blank.
AFAIK the mod_rewrite of the apache is on and I went for the worst case scenario described here https://processwire.com/docs/security/file-permissions/ and set all file-permissions for future files to 0666 and folders to 0777 in the config.php
What am I not getting and what am I doing wrong?
Help is appreciated, stay save everybody,
Having just wasted the best part of a day debugging an access issue because I hadn't realised that page-edit-created negated any related page-edit permissions, could I suggest that a note to this effect is included in the default title. I have amended the title on my system to read:
Edit only pages user has created (IMPORTANT: This will negate any related page-edit permission - including permissions granted to a user by other roles) ..although it may be possible to make it briefer while not losing clarity and impact.
