Getting Started with Posts 3: Manage board permissions

The ability to create new Posts content is tied to a user's permissions within the module.

Admin users whose admin groups have "Composer" access can be provided with full or limited access to Posts boards, collections, and publications on the Permissions tab of the Posts menu. When "View" or "Not Allowed" rights for boards are set in Permissions, rights to specific boards can be assigned separately, as with constituent Posts users. For full details about Posts permissions, refer to Posts admin permissions.

Set board permission levels

Constituent user and limited admin user permissions are set individually for each board. Board admins who are not site admins can also assign permissions for their boards.

  1. Find the Board whose permissions you want to edit. Click on the three-dot Action Menu, and select "Settings", and then "Permissions."

  2. Start typing a name into the "Add Constituent" field. Posts will begin suggesting users from Constituent Manager with matching names. Click on the desired user to select that person.

  3. Select the appropriate permission level for the user.

    • Admin: These users have full permission to view, edit, delete, and publish all posts; manage board categories; adjust other users' permission levels; and add new users.

    • View, Edit, Publish & Delete (All Posts): These users have full permission to view, edit, delete, and publish all posts on this board.

    • View, Edit & Delete (All Posts): These users can edit all posts at will, but cannot publish anything to the live site. Another user with a higher permission level would have to login to review & publish their posts.

    • View, Edit, Publish & Delete (Own Posts Only): These users have full permission to view, edit, delete, and publish their own posts on this board, but they may not access posts by any other user.

    • View, Edit & Delete (Own Posts Only): These users can edit their own posts at will, but cannot publish anything to the live site or access posts by any other user. Another user with a higher permission level would have to login to review & publish their posts.

    • View: Users can see the board and the titles of its posts, but cannot open them or make any edits.
