Posts permissions

In this article, we’ll describe the process for granting admin permissions within Posts. Posts permissions are somewhat unique as Posts users can be Admin Users or Portal Users. For admins and constituent users, you can set permissions for boards and collections.

Define Composer rights

Before an admin group can view and utilize the Posts module at whatever level you would grant them, ensure that Composer is enabled on the group’s settings in the Admin Users module.

To access Posts permissions for the entire module, go to the Permissions tab of the Posts navigation.

Scan the columns for each component of Posts, and choose the level of access to be applied to that particular component. For more info, read further here to see the level breakdowns for each.

  • Not Allowed means the Boards tab will not be visible in the interface, unless rights to a specific board are provisioned.
  • View access allows the user to view all boards and the posts on them, but they may only edit or create posts on boards they have additional permissions for.
  • Admin provides full edit access to all boards, including the ability to approve posts if no admin is assigned to a particular board at the board, granular level. 


  • Not Allowed means the Collections tab will not be visible in the interface, unless rights to a specific collection are provisioned.
  • View access allows users to see but not edit all collections.
  • Admin provides full access to all collections. Users can add posts to collections from boards they have at least view permissions for.


  • Not Allowed means the Publications tab will not be visible in the interface. 
  • Admin provides full access to the Publications area.

Manage Tags

  • Not Allowed means that the Tags tab will not be visible in left navigation.
  • View access allows admins to view the list of all tags in use in the module, as well as the number or "count" of posts they are used on.
  • Admin adds the ability to rename tags, delete tags, and merge one or more tags into another.


  • Not Allowed means the Permissions tab will not be visible in the interface. Admin users cannot change permission levels for their own admin group.
