Access control to the admin interface


#1

Hello. At this time there are in radiant two access roles:
administrator and developer. For the site I’m going to develop I’d
need at least a third role which is similar to the developer one but
whose editing capabilities are limited to a branch of the site. For
example, a Greek author or a German one should only be able to edit
(remove, add, change) their language branch rather than the whole
site. They should also be forbidden to remove snippets, layouts and so
on. Is there a “simple” way I can reach such level of access control
at the current stage of development of radiant? Many thanks.

There is not really an easy way to do this right now. I’m considering
adding the ability to do this with the rest of the full administration
system, but haven’t made any decisions.

You might consider running multiple Radiant installs if you need to
prevent English users from accessing the German content.

John, thank you for your suggestion. I’ll likely go with it. I’m
looking forward to the upcoming administrative access facility and
also to protected access to part of the web site by the end users. --M
