- It lets you set user groups and such beyond the TXP admin. Not 100% sure it will do what you want but I think it does.Mar 19, 2013
- — Have you used this pair of plugins? As I check them out, I don't see anything new in the backend that might facilitate this task. I can imagine using this to build a front-end UI for managing editors, unless that's the only option but I'd rather not. Please let me know if you have any insight.Mar 21, 2013
- Hey,: You built smd_user_manager. Do you have any insight into this?Mar 27, 2013
- What I did with those plugins was basically created a form that users who say owned a certain article could then edit, write, remove articles from the front end. AJAX call a php file that runs the queries I needed to tap into the textpattern db table and update, delete or insert.
So I did a check to see if they were logged using the plugins in and if so they had tools available to them to manage the article.Mar 27, 2013
- Stef DawsonOwnerYes I do have insight: it's a good use case for smd_user_manager :-)
If you give your Managing Editors suitable privs and set the smd_um prefs up to be "hierarchical" then anyone with access to the Users panel will be able to create accounts of people "lower" (in terms of priv level) than themselves. Sounds like that'd fit the billl here.Mar 28, 2013
- Thanks,! That's exactly what I need.
I must be doing something wrong though. When I go to the "Privs" tab of the "User manager" pane, I toggle the "smd" preferences open, and check the checkbox for "smd_um.usr.create" under "Managing Editor", then click "Save". The panel reloads with a "Privs updated" message, but it doesn't give me a "New user" button on the "Users" pane for Managing Editors. When I look at the "smd" preferences again on the "Privs" tab, the "smd_um.usr.create" under "Managing Editor" is unchecked. I've re-checked and re-saved it several times, but nothing happens. Can you advise? Please let me know if there's something obvious I'm missing.
Problem solved. I found the "Allow smd_um privs to be altered" setting. It works!Apr 1, 2013
