restrict author

Hello,
Is there a way to restrict author to view and change by owned articles only.
Now, any author can change, delete any article , what I need to do allow only the owner to change, or delete their articles.
also restrict or hide or disable sort and display div

Thank you

Re: restrict author

Have you checked this article on “User roles and privileges” in the documentation?

You certainly can restrict authors to a limited set of actions.

Re: restrict author

smd_user_manager might help as you can create new roles and customise the privileges accordingly.

Re: restrict author

Thank you Bloke,
smd_user_manager worked, (Bot_Privs got mysql error). I wish the plugin had , show only owned articles, files, images so on,
no need to show other articles if no access, in this case , other authors can have private articles or files .
just an idea.

Thank you

Re: restrict author

Thank you bici ,
I’m using dev 4.8.9 version with php 8.1 , that plugin didn’t work, but Bloke’s suggestion worked for me,

I looked at Bot_Privs , looks minor change or comment out mysql version will work, but I didn’t want to change it.

Thanks again

That’s not a priv we have available, but it’s trivial to write a plugin to do it :)

(see the 2nd example plugin in that post)

Re: restrict author

Thanks Stef ,

I have installed the plugin, and enabled it, do I need anything else to make it work ?
Now when I login as restricted user, still I see others’ articles

Thank you for your help

Re: restrict author

Hmmm it should just work out of the box. All it does is add the relevant clause to the query. Let me test it and get back to you.

Re: restrict author

Ah wait, you need to ensure it’s of Plugin Type 3 (admin). Otherwise it won’t run.

Try this compiled plugin instead:

# Users can only view their own content
# Stef Dawson / Dale Chapman
# https://stefdawson.com/

As noted in that thread I linked to, it might be a good idea if Publishers were exempt from the restriction so they can see all content. That would require a couple more lines of code.
