(read faq) Story Admin cannot edit other users post

My topics groups are set to Story Admin (Read and edit)
my user say "joe" is assigned to Story Admin
$_CONF['default_permissions_story'] = array (3, 2, 2, 2);

now user "joe" can only edit his own post. Against all other users it says read only


what else do i need to

1) make uner user incharge of approving and edit all posts.
2) allow all users to edit their post without allow them to moderate.

I don't quite understand your question. What is "uner user" in your first question?

Isn't the second one exactly they way "joe" is having?

All settings depends on those check boxes. Joy can edit the stories that has the "edit" box checked, even if he is a story admin. To be in charge of and approve all posts, one must be given "root" access, or set the array to 3,3,2,2, so that all new story will have edit right by the Story Admin, unless the author uncheck the edit box.

Peace!

Yeah, I don't quite understand the problem either. Please rephrase it.

Keep in mind that the config.php setting is only the default (for new stories). Changing that won't change any exisiting stories. You'll have to edit them.

bye, Dirk

The existing stories can be updated from MySQL (using phpMyAdmin, for example), if necessary.
Text Formatted Code
UPDATE gl_stories SET perm_group = 3;

This would make all the exisiting stories editable for anyone in the same group.

1: make the user "story admin"
2: create a new group "myeditors" give them story.edit right. They should not be story admins.

The topics must be editable to those "myeditors". And use Dirk`s advice.
~~~
I forgot, you need to make all stories editable by group "myeditors" too instead of "story admin" - Dirk, another MySQL command?
