Plugin Description:

Simple Access Plugin

An updated version from the original and much simpler.

Depending on the permissions set for each user, users can access and edit all pages created by another user. The plugin does NOT allow access the targeting of specific pages per se but rather whole collections created by another user.

A good example would be:

User 'John' has created three pages. User 'Sally' is granted access to pages created by user 'John'.

So, everything John created is available to Sally.

The 'Simple Access' plugin hide pages depending on the user logged in. The plugin obtains the author of each page and if the author value does not match the logged in user or does not possess the correct permissions, then the page entry is removed from the pages listing in pages.php.

The same principle is also applied to pages in edit.php too

Install Instructions:

unzip the file

Place the following in your plugins directory:

  • simpleAccess.php
  • simpleAccess folder

Activate the plugin from the plugins tab in GetSimple.

Once activated, a new file is created that holds permissions for each user. The person installing the plugin will be granted access to the simpleAccess functions (located in the new tab).

All other users will not have access to those new functions unless set within plugin.

ReadMe file is included in the download
