User rights and Prilidges
penehoff
I know i bug you guys a lot and i had a light go on and was thinking again.

Ok as of now to give a user certain privileges you have to ad them as a administrator then check what part of the site they are privileged too... my thing is do they have to labeled as administrator??

You guys understand what i am saying ..

You can give access to pages and a few other things based on user group without giving them admin access, but for anything that requires access to the admin panel (settings, news posting, etc.) they need admin privileges.

That's why there's a submission/approval queue for news postings, articles, etc. Users can "Submit" a submission (like photos) and an admin approves it and it shows up in the intended section without them needing admin access. It all depends on the level of control you need.

Let me explain more of what was tinkering in my brain, the ability for user group Bands/Musicians to create photo albums for their own bands .. But with current system they will have to be set as adminand given that privaledge

Right. Someone from each band would have to be designated as a "Band Manager", given Admin access to ONLY the creation of photo albums, but that gives them access to ALL of the photo albums, not just their own...

OR they can send a request to an administrator to have a photo category/album created

OR someone can make a photo system that allows users to create photo albums of their own, tied to their account.

I would prefer a pure infusion solution for this. This would be classified as a MOD since it doesn't make use of the infusion system and you have to manually edit core files and databases for it to work properly.

I'd test it on a dummy site first then make a backup of your live site and try it there after you've proved it elsewhere. One wrong move with a mod like this and your whole site could take a dump.
