User Permissions

  • User Permissions

    I'm trying to create the concept of a "department". The department is a major branch of the website, for example

    I want the department owner to have normal owner authority of their own department, but not of any other departments, nor of the website root.

    What I've done is created a role "department manager", which mostly denies them everything. However, for the specific user(s) which owns their individual department, I create an allow for their subfolder to the root.

    I'm having trouble isolating them to their department, and if I deny them to the root, then the "pages" page will not load at all. Can anybody help with this?

  • Hello Eileen,

    Please check and ensure that you have the role/s added under:  
    Pages > (on the right side) Permissions for all pages > "Add widgets and layout elements to the page".

    Than set the permissions needed (Allow or Deny) for the group pages/departments.

    Tutorial about how to grant permissions for pages is available here:
