How do I restrict a normally registered member of my site from uploading files into the download area?

I have setup almost everything but tried to find everywhere else, how to restrict a normally registered member and everyone else but the super-moderator (and of course the Admin) from uploading files into the download area.

PLEASE HELP!!!

Hi,

I am guessing you want to restrict them from submitting to anywhere, including the download area.

If that's the case then go to Admin Zone > Security > Global specific-permissions > Submission (in the list). Remove the midrange and highrange submit permissions from appropriate usergroups.

  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thanks Chris! I had already removed ALL permissions for this group from the "Submission" sector.

I don't know why the test member I created is still able to upload.

I'll want to see if a new member is also automatically added to another group with higher permissions. Any pointers on where to check for these???

Thanks a million.......

Take a look at your test users profile. Maybe their in an inappropriate primary group or some secondary group.

Otherwise the problem could be that you've overridden permissions using the Permission Tree Editor. If you've done this the changes I mentioned can't take affect. Look in the permission tree editor to see if anything special is set for Site\Downloads.
