Permissions in areas and blocks1 user found helpful
I have set the area permissions in the page type so that users cannot access the design or layout features within an area. However, when I use that page type to create a page, and choose to add a block for content or an image, the user has access to the design and layout features for the block. Why wouldn't the block take the permissions of the area that was set in the page type? Do I need to create dummy blocks in each page type so that I can set the permissions for each block type?
then, you can also click on individual blocks within the areas and set permissions to those as well. Preferably, you would want to get all these permissions set up on the page type defaults page so from then on, all new pages will inherit the defaults from page type defaults!!
Yes, this is the only way I have been able to allow users to edit content without being able to edit the design too. Put the block there in page type defaults and set permissions so they cant delete it, design it, nothing, just edit it, and save changes!
It would be really nice, if within dashboard > block & stack permissions, we were able to globally set up these block permissions so when a user added a particular block the permissions would come with it!!
