Adjust access control list rights

Post by hettenhouse131 » Fri Aug 28, 2009 4:56 pm

I administer a 120 member kayak club website; members are registered as either Authors or Publishers. We are finding that Authors don't have enough rights and Publishers have too many rights as a general membership category.

We need a control category in which a member can post an article without approval, edit thir own work but not the work of others and be able to "unpublish" an article they have written.

Our suggestion would be to modify the Editor category to include this mix of rights. Logically, this mix fits between Author and Publisher. Administrative life would be easier not having to approve and unpublish the work of Authors.

Any chance of making this change in an upcoming version?

Thanks, .....George
