User Content Control

Is it possible to configure per-user/group what menu items and `actions` they have available?

We do not allow anonymous access for business reasons, however we do have a readonly user who's only supposed to be able to read the wiki, we do not want them to get to the dashboard or modify the user profile etc which is all currently possible through the Browse/User menus.

I've been looking at Menu Manager plugin but that seems to be applied across the board to all plugins.

Thoughts, suggestions?

Yeah, the Menu Manager turns stuff on and off for everyone, not specific users or groups. There isn't anything built in, but you could use the Theme Builder plugin to create your own theme, and use stuff like {builder-show} to control who sees what menu items. Otherwise, you're looking at a custom plugin that could either hack the <web-item> elements and add some extra permissions checks, or a filter to actually block access to the specific locations.

Hope that helps!


Tried to get Theme Builder but the plugin refuses to install and Adaptivist's site doesn't seem to want to play ball at present :(

I believe that Theme builder now needs Adaptavist's Plugin License Manager to be installed first in order to work. (FYI: this should be a comment, but I'm on iOS, so can't due to a bug in Answers)
