Wiki Permissions: Allow only creator to remove page?

posts: 3

Is there a way to set permissions so that the original creator of
a Wiki page can remove it, but others in the same group cannot?

I turned off 'Can admin the wiki' (tiki_p_admin_wiki) but I can't tell that it has any affect in this case, the Remove button is controlled by 'Can Remove' (tiki_p_remove) regardless of the user.

I am running 5.0.

Thanks.

There are no "User" based permissions for the Wiki from what I know.

If someone does know of a way to accomplish your use case I would be happy to hear about it.

The only real option is to have unique groups for each user (this feature can be turned on in Tiki) but this would be a major pain to control and implement for your needs.

Hope this helps

What about activating the wiki admin option "Make user the admin of his/her pages"? (I'm not sure if that's the exact wording.)

Gary,

I tried the "Make user the admin of his/her pages" permission, but I can't tell that it affected the ability to delete a page one way or another.

Thanks.

Why not try a test by temporarily making new users and seeing what they can or can't do (as page author and not page author, etc.)?

I tested all 4 combinations of admin and remove with the page creator user and a different user login, the user made no difference.
