Permissions

To set permission rights within the site the site owner or administrator or other authorised person must be logged on to identify themselves.

The editline of the website is only visible to authorised users who are logged in to the system. Selecting the permissions menu will bring up a screen which allows the user to set both viewing and editing permissions.

Edit: permissions / site / page / menu / button set

Select permissions to examine and change the level of access for various types of, or explicitly identified, viewer or for the entire site globally.

Viewing rights, for one or more specific pages, can be set to:
  • anonymous - which means anybody can see the pages associated.

  • loggedin - which means the associated page(s) will only be visible to viewers who have logged in to the site.

  • be seen only by one or more specific viewers by listing each of the allowed individuals' e-mail address.

Page editing rights can be limited, for one or more specific pages, to an individual or group by detailing each allowed individual's e-mail address. These individuals can be further restricted to being able to upload images only to a named directory and to any lower directories that they can create.

Content editing rights - for all pages - can be given to a list of specific individuals by listing each allowed ndividuals' e-mail addresses. Content editing rights convey the rights to edit all pages on the site and new page creation rights but no menu or buttonset creation / amendment / deletion rights.

Site editing rights - for the entire site - can be given to a list of specific individuals by listing each allowed individuals' e-mail address. Site editing rights convey the right to access and edit all pages on the site and to create new pages - this is often limited to being given only to the designers. Only those with site editing rights can create, amend and delete menus and buttonsets

Permission editing rights can be given to a list of specific individuals by listing each allowed individuals' e-mail address. This right allows each identified individual to grant more permission rights to others - this is often never used.

The site owner automatically has permission editing rights and site editing rights and, naturally, page editing for all pages and page creation rights and all rights over menus and buttonsets.
