Hey guys,

I am just curious if theres a way to shut off the link that appears at the bottom of the downloads page (Control functions : Add a new download) I don't want some of my users to have access to this. If it turns out I can shut it off for all users that would be fine also, but how do i go about doing that?


Thanks

Have you checked to make sure your users actually see that message? I think it only shows for people who have permission to add downloads (admins). You can use the SU feature to see what it looks like from another user ('test' is a good user to try) - on the left-hand panel.

At the bottom of each category, select "Edit Download Category".
Then when you scroll down to Permissions, have all usergroups "Read-Only Access". This will allow them to download, but not add or edit.

works perfect, thanks eric…only other problem is..seems i have to do this for every sub-folder as well, not just the root folder, is there any way i can just set 'read only' as my default so i don't have to be changing permissions every time i create a new sub directory?

quick response to gabriel…ya they do see that message, i checked with the test account.

For the ones you have created, you'll have to set them "manually". For future ones, go to:

Admin Zone > Security > Global-Specific Permissions > Submission

At the bottom you will see 'Submit mid-impact (medium visibility) content'. This one has to do with downloads.

I think if you uncheck all usergroups for this, none of them will be able to submit any downloads. Someone else can correct me if I am wrong.

Well-settled

Actually what you need to do is to go to the Permission Tree Editor (under Security in the Admin Zone), find the Site\Downloads entry in the tree, and remove the 'Submit mid-impact (medium visibility) content' there. Doing it globally would work, but it'd apply to galleries etc also.
