Advanced permissions & file manager access
I have a group of site authors and whenever they try to add an image or a file they get the message "Unable to access the file manager." It looks like there have been quite a few questions around this topic, but none of the answers have done the trick for me yet.
Under the advanced permissions scheme, the site authors are assigned the same permissions as the admin for dashboard->file manager. All the pages beneath the file manager inherit it's permissions (although I have set them to overide too and that made no difference).
I feel like that should be all that needs to be done, no? All advice appreciated.
If you log in as your site administrator you can go to the file manager section in the dashboard and click on the Access tab. Here you can add individuals or groups and set their detailed file permissions.
I hope this is of help to others who are hunting as I was.
you can add groups and users..
