Users cannot edit fields which they type in a catalogue after they submitted?

Hi all, I encountered this problem where the user who submitted a catalogue entry cannot edit his own entry. Is there any way to enable the editing function of user when he/she wants to edit his own catalogue entry. Thanks

This is a matter of setting permissions. When you edit the catalogue categories or catalogue itself you'll see permission options to set what groups may edit their own entries.

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.

To Chris, i have done what you said regarding the permission setting. So basically, i got 2 groups - "administrator" and the other one the "newbie". The below attached images are what i have done to permission setting. I set the newbie to have "unvetted add/ self edit" permission having "yes" to "Edit own midrange" droplist. Although the catalogue viewing page for the newbie's submission has "Edit entry" button but when i clicked it, it resulted in a error stating that "You do not have the permission to edit own midrange". Can you help me with it? or is there something which i did wrongly which resulted in this problem. Thanks in advance.
