Extension allowing users to edit only their own content ?

Postby Thomas111 » Sat Nov 01, 2008 10:29 am

Anybody aware of an extension, that allows mulitple users to edit their own content ?

I'm looking for some way of giving a group of users their own little space on my site, without enabling them to edit other content.

Perhaps some special editors code or something.

Any help apreciated.

I'm not sure if such an extension exists. I'm currently developing something along those lines, I'm using the user id to identify if a user can edit content.
Cheers, Babs

Thank you for the overview. Much Appreciated.

Sounds interesting.

I would be the first to download your extention, if you put it in the Extensions Directory.

I just found what I need in the extensions directory: An extension called camelcitycontent2 allows users to edit their own content, and only that.

Here is a link to it: http://extensions.joomla.org/component/ ... Itemid,35/
And the homepage: http://joomla.camelcity.com/

Easy to install, just publish a link to the component in the menu, and you're on.
When a user logs in, he gets a list of his own content, that he is allowed, and able to edit.

Thanks to camelcity.com for an eminent job!

Yes, I also found that - its called MyContent :)

Didn't try it myself, but it seems like its a goog one.

Here's a link to it in the extensions dictionary:
http://extensions.joomla.org/component/ ... Itemid,35/

thanx Thomas, but this component allows users to see a list of their own articles, but they cannot edit their submitted content.

Ok - I was not aware of that.
It is possible to edit own content in camelcitycontent2, but it is only for 1.5.x ..

I liked this extension and used it.. but the J! folks who saw a lot of potential in this for more were pretty harsh on the developers who weren't really interested taking the com farther and have pretty much stopped working on it.
