ACL says user allowed to edit but front end listing won't allow it

Post by Gavrillo » Mon Aug 13, 2018 4:02 pm

Hi

I want to allow a user group to edit each other's articles. I've set up a group under administrator called 'edit all' (see screen grab sg1) that has 'allowed' set for the 'edit' option for articles (see attached screen grab 'sg4 global settings').

In access levels I've added the 'Edit All' group to special and publisher (see sg2). I've set up a user called test who is attached to just about every relevant group (see sg3).

When I log in as test and try to edit at the front end the system only allows user 'Test' to edit his own articles. I think I've set everything up so that he should be able to edit ALL the articles. What have I done wrong?

I've attached a fpa report as a pdf to avoid the report cluttering up the query. Thanks in advance to any takers.

Not related but important. You should not add the new user group access to 'Special' view/access.

Public or Registered should be the Parent of the new user group.

Test with Protostar as default.
