Administrators cannot add new pages3 users found helpful
Recently, I installed Concrete5 and activated advanced permissions.
I then created a new administrator. Oddly, this new administrator cannot add new pages.
When I log in as the new administrator, the "add page" button on the top left of the c5 bar doesn't even appear.
Any advice on how to confer upon this new administrator privileges to add new pages would be much appreciated.
When in site map,clicking the page and selecting 'add page' returns an access denied message.
When visiting the parent page, there is no 'add page' button.
Goto your home page and click the permissions button.
Make sure Administrators have full rights.
Then change the 'Currently Viewing' option to 'Sub Page Permissions' and tick which page types your administrator is allowed to add.
This is a great feature as you can limit the 'design' freedom of the users, it's just that it was a little too hidden for my liking :-)
I was so confused from this menu...
I think the reason it is confusing is because when you click on the button labeled "Permissions" the dialog window that opens up has the heading "Page Permissions" ...
then the 'Currently Viewing" drop down menu says "Page Permissions" ...
A slight miss-communication in design because to have the main heading be "Page Permissions" but then have a section titled "Page Permissions" is confusing ... or at least not 100% intuitive:)
What if the main heading was just "Permissions"?
keep the heading "Page Permissions" and change the select item label to something like 'Currently Viewing: Access Permissions, Sub-Page Permissions, etc'
I then changed to advanced permissions and did what you suggested and it worked.
