Why are my freelancers able to upload images?

I am running 4.8.8 and was just surprised by one of my authors-in-training with the Freelancer role who somehow managed to upload their own images. According to the docs (and my many years of TXP experience) They should be blocked from Content > Images. Is this a known issue?

Re: Why are my freelancers able to upload images?

Hi jimsanto and welcome (back),

From what I can see in the code, all roles have access to the Content › Images pane, and the Freelancer role can create and edit and delete own images but not those of others.

In txp 4.8.8 the access rights are detailed in /lib/admin_config.php where No 5 = freelancer.

So, it looks like the error is in the docs.

The good news is, you can change that if you wish. You can either edit admin_config.php directly to remove access for freelancers (simply remove the 5 in the list), or use a plugin such as rah_privileges to edit privileges via the admin back-end.
