Hi

I want to allow various users to log into the admin area and be able to edit their own content.

I know how to give access to various areas ie orders and products but selecting content just lets everyone see each others text

Is this possible

Regards

Alan

I believe craeting a supplier or author login will help you achieve this. Each supplier or author will then only be able to edit or access their own product/content.

If you are looking at a more advanced publishing system, then I suggest using a standalone CMS that you can incorporate into VPASP. There are many free ones available via aspin.com and hotscripts.com.

Those CMS will give you more control over user and content management, as well as publishing access and dates.

To expand on goshen's comments -- the below suggestion is only if you have a handful of users, otherwise it would probably be a pain to administer.

Set up each user as a Restricted Admin and give them access ONLY to the View/Edit Products section and table. Then just customize the heck out of a product template so it is really nothing more than a content page. Then use that template in their product's template field or use it in the link to the extended description for that product.

This way, they can only see the "product" they created. And by using the customized template, you're displaying their "product" as a content page with out any of the unnecessary stuff like price or order button.

We did this for a client who also wrote a biweekly newsletter. This way it gave him the ability to add the "Reviews" and the search feature worked within his newsletters.

Hope that helps.


Regards,

Eric in Maine
