Re: Assignment: section permission design

Alexandra,
I read the article. It was dense, but I believe I followed the concepts.
It seems like it will be important for the workgroup to have a cohesive language set in order to understand what means what? In the article, it mentions a lot about versioning. Is this something we’ll want to attack in the workgroup? The concept of permissions and versioning seem interrelated and I don’t know that they’ll be able to be segregated, but I thought it was worth asking about.

I will not be up to the task of “structuring information”. I wish I was, but this four month old child is taking up a great deal of time, simple participation is my limit – sorry.

I agree we should talk to David about Drupal.

I also think it wouldn’t hurt to think in real world terms about permission levels as well. Often times we get sucked into the vortex of the web and forget the ways that people think on a daily basis. I think it will be important to make judgement about permissions based on “usability, findability, and accessibility” from a conceptual standpoint. I think a corporate or business model is often a good one, as well as the typical editor based model?

I guess before we get going on this, we should figure out how we will begin communicating? Another thread? Via Email? ???

Thanks,

Matthew

I absolutely agree. I see if i find some glossary resources.

By ‘versioning’ you talk about the status of an article? I read the german version of the article and a bit the english one. I am not quite sure to what part of the article you referr now regarding ‘versioning’.

I agree we should talk to David about Drupal.

We should open a new thread on the textpattern section of the board asking people about hteir experiences with other CMS´s perm. system.

I agree. My idea is: keep it simple, smart and scalable.

I vote for another thread (Rights & Permission Workgroup) as we have to gather some informations from outside at this point.

Anybody any other ideas?

Re: Assignment: section permission design

okay, I think structuring the infos for the paper could be my job.

after a hard day of work (building a network of ill windows computers) I now have to rest for a night, and tomorrow will read the article. Sorry for the delay.

Re: Assignment: section permission design

Alexandra et al,

I concur. Lets start a new thread : Rights & Permission Workgroup.

Regarding versioning: My impression from the article is more vague than a specific paragraph. I sensed that there was a need for editing to happen in a linear fashion from least permission to most, or if it were to happen in a centrifigual/concentric pattern from outer to inner with multiple author’s of the same permission, then there was a more complex method. (I should look back through the article and pinpoint some specifics – perhaps) Anyway, that’s what I was on about. :)

Cool, lets get the ball rollin. :)

Re: Assignment: section permission design

@Matthew
i am still all shocked about marys decision and therefor not well structured today. can you open the new thread, best on ‘textpattern’ board section. your english is far better than mine and a short introduction should be no problem for you. Thanks :)

Re: Assignment: section permission design

Yeah,
Me too. Stinks. Mary was really really kind and helpful. Change is constant.
I’ll get the thread started this afternoon.

Re: Assignment: section permission design

I don’t know how I missed this thread until now, but it’s a good one. What mary said up there ^^ is almost precisely my thoughts. However, my needs up to this point have only included per-user section restrictions. In any event, I just want to reiterate her ideas and say that I’m onboard with whatever work/help is needed.

Re: Assignment: section permission design

Oh and one other feature (not sure if previously listed):

  • the ability to have a different section “Selected by default?” for each user or workgroup

Re: Assignment: section permission design

Whats the status on this subject, any developments?

I’m looking for a plugin or mod to do the following. I couldn’t find any information about this anywhere:

When a user is logged in to write/edit an article:

- only allowed categories are visible/selectable for certain privilege and above

- only allowed sections are visible/selectable for certain privilege and above

This way different staff writers could have different restrictions to what categories or sections they can publish articles. It’s a really important missing feature from Textpattern.
