Hi, all.

My ocP installation is nearly awesome.  However, I have a few tweaks to do, and hope I can ask them here:

1:  The ability to add banners is presented to members.  I want to remove that.  How?

2:  Contacts is listed in the nav bar, as I want it.  I want to allow members to add contacts, but there's currently no way presented on the Contacts page.  How?

3:  The Wiki now works, I can use the how-to from the link that Steven provided to add new wiki pages as admin.  mEMEBRS CAN ADD POSTS TO THE wiki pages, as I want.  But, can members create new wiki pages?  If so, how?

As always, many thanks for your help.

Well-settled

Hi Diggy,

1:  The ability to add banners is presented to members.  I want to remove that.  How?

Access to all content modules' user interfaces is via the Content Management (cms) menu page. You can prevent specifc usergroup viewing of any of the items on this menu through the Permissions Tree Editor (Admin Zone > Security menu). On the Tree's contracted view, click the + beside Zone:Content Management, wait for the list of modules to load, then click the name of the module you want to hide from the cms menu.
Scroll down the page to see the Permissions for that module, and uncheck "View access" for any usergroup you want to hide it from, then click "Set". 

To check the result, first scroll back up to the Tree, and select usergroups one-by-one from the Display dropdown on the top right. The module you just tweaked should now display a red dot beside it for all blocked usergroups. Now exit the editor by clicking the Content Management tab on the top nav. Because you're logged in as Admin, you'll see all modules on the cms Menu. But if you logout and login again as a user in any blocked usergroup (or quicker, use the SU feature in the footer) and re-access the cms Menu, the module's icon and link should now be missing from it.
2:  Contacts is listed in the nav bar, as I want it.  I want to allow members to add contacts, but there's currently no way presented on the Contacts page.  How?

Contacts are added via the cms menu: click the  Contacts icon, then the Add Contact icon.
To create an Add Contact link on the Contacts page, you'd need to edit it into the template that controls it.
Alternatively, you might want to consider creating a sub-menu branch for the Contact nav menu item, whose link pointed directly to the Add Contact screen.

New wiki pages are added by exactly the same general procedure as adding Contacts, ie, via the cms menu.

Hope this helps,

Richard.

Hi!

To allow members to create Wiki+ pages this is what they need, permission wise…

Permission to submit and edit mid-level stuff (Global Permissions Editor)

Edit the main wiki page and set these permissions for the member groups you want to give page editing power to:

Edit Wiki+ Page

Give this permission to the groups you want to CREATE Wiki+ pages

Edit Wiki+ Tree

Hope that helps!
