trying to find where

to set permissions for all members to be un-validate for blog posts and news posts found the news permissions in permission tree.... but can't find for blogs.

I don't want to try and set it for each user, I would like everyone who is a member to be able to post blogs and news without having to be validated.

Thx

Yes, but I don't know if Blog and News is considered Low, Med, or High visible Content.  Maybe just start with low and see if it does what you need it to do.

Actually I just looked and to set permissions on just those modules go to the Permissions Tree Editor instead and expand the Content Manager tab and you'll see the Blog and News options there.

Blogs are news. Maybe we just didn't put validated into the blogs UI, I can't remember. It was designed to be simple – for a blog, it's meant to be quick and personal, so validation doesn't make so much sense. Maybe you want people to post via news? More functionality, can achieve all the blogs UI can do.

@chipster yes I checked permissions tree and there are only view-access options not the same rights have the blog's post not have to be validated before posting to the site.
still searching….

@Chris What I am trying to do is "not" have to validate(as admin) each time a member posts a blog.

Though blogs are news I can't find the setting to un-tick to do this.   The news setting works fine for "news" but doesn't effect Blog post.

Can I make the blog use news posting? Without having to validate each post?  I knows this works with news.

The functionality I really am trying for is to have a user(logged in with Facebook) post a blog on my site and have it syndicated to their wall… activity feed…. without me having to validate each post.

Thanks in advance

Setting it on cms_news worked fine for me.



(I was testing with a Newbie account)

Before enabling this, a new blog post was unvalidated.

After enabling this, a new blog post was validated.


The only caveat was that I had to load the blog post form after setting the privilege. This is necessary as otherwise the 'validated' option doesn't carry through the form as checked because the lack of initial privilege would stop it being there in the first instance.

YES, Yes this was extactly what I was experiencing…except I didn't realize … also I thinking underlying a lot of my issues is emptying of cache (browers cache, site cache, etc.) perhaps a tutorial of how and when to do this would be good.

I'm willing to give my imput and or help.  A either for book or just UI, tutorial, I am affraid I do not know enough about tempcode, css, php, html, yet to give technical assistance, but I sure can contribute to UI issues….

Just because I don't think right….lol

It is working correctly as you stated Chris.

Thx. again for your help and time.  Also thank you Chip I really value your help.


If I can help through my experiences/observations/commentary le me know where I will.  I like this product I have certainity it does a lot more then I am capablef using at the moment…

But that is changing constantly.

This will be added to the permissions tutorial:
Be aware that privilege changes may require refreshing of any currently-open forms where the privilege may be used.
For example, bypass-validation privileges add a checkbox to the form, and if the privilege is not enabled that checkbox will not be there. When the form is submitted ocPortal requires that checkbox to be checked, in addition to the secure re-testing of access that will happen at this point.

browers cache

I think some modern browsers can be a bit aggressive with CSS, images and Javascript. Sometimes simply reopening the browser helps. Sometimes I launch a private browsing window to do tests as it tends to have its own separate caches.

site cache

ocPortal should automatically empty its caches if things are edited within ocPortal. If it isn't doing so in any case, please report this as a bug.

I'm willing to give my imput and or help.  A either for book or just UI, tutorial, I am affraid I do not know enough about tempcode, css, php, html, yet to give technical assistance, but I sure can contribute to UI issues….

There's an ongoing need for people to contribute to the community docs.
