Hello,

While testing the feature to disallow personal categories, what is happening is that after going to Global Permissions >Submissions and unchecking "have personal categories", for a particular group, a newly registered test user in that group was still allowed their own personal category for news submissions.

I couldn't find any other permissions setting area that would have been applicable. Any assistance much appreciated.

Hi,

Look in the permission tree editor, on cms\cms_news - it might be that this is overriding the permission.
EDIT: or possibly site\news – I often forget which myself to be honest ;). Only one of them provides the override option.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • 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.
