Re: Password protection

Hi Bruce,
I also need this kind of only-log-in-role, but I solve it by using the “Freelancer” – which I never need – who in any way only could write own articles.
With smd_user_manager you could deactivate tab.content and/or list (I didn’t check that), so he can log in but will not see anything on the admin side.

EDIT: And I have cbe_frontath and smd_user_manager together in one install, without any interference.

Re: Password protection

That works. I have rah_privileges installed and used it to switch off all the admin functions for freelancer. Accessing the admin area using that log-in shows a message saying “Restricted area” and no visible tabs apart from the view site tab.

That should give enough security. Thanks.

Stay safe

Re: Password protection

I really should patch smd_user_manager. It’s been on my to-do list for ages.
