You can restrict editing rights to a page by adjusting the settings inside the editing restrictions tab. This allows you to specify, besides the owner of a page, who should be able to access and edit a page.
Editing restrictions are useful if you are trying to setup a permission set for particular pages for particular people.
For example, your youth minister should only be able to access and edit their page(s). They can not add or delete pages, only modify the content on the pages assigned to them.
In this example, in the Settings > Users area of the system , you would edit this user's profile > permissions to have only "Modify" (edit) rights within the Pages area. Then, you would go to Page and work with the Editing Restrictions tab for each page that they should have access to.
- You must first setup editors in the Settings > Users/Editors area of the system before you can give them editing privileges to a particular page.
- Any editor that is setup as an "Administration Level User" will automatically have permission to add/modify/delete every page.
- Any editor that has NOT been setup as an "Administration Level User" will need to be added within the page restriction settings of the page on a PAGE-BY-PAGE basis in order to edit pages.
