Plugins to Edit Roles:
If the above roles are not sufficient for you you can edit those roles by activating the following plugins on any WebdotUNC site.
- Press Permit – This is the core plugin for managing permissions. You can set up custom groups for viewing content.
- PP Teaser Extension – You can create a custom teaser sentence to show to users that don’t have rights to view content, or need to log in to view something.
- PP Back-End Content Roles – This adds capabilities to Press Permit to control who can edit content on the backend as well.
- PP File Filtering – This will protect files that are attached to protected content so that users can not view PDF’s or other files attached to content unless they have rights to that.
- Capability Manager Enhanced – If you need to give a default role (subscriber, contributor etc) more capabilities than they normally have. This can be used alone, or in conjunction with Press Permit and the above plugins
