  • [CMS] How to set permission for index page of section?

    I would like to set 'Can publish' permission for user group. But user in group can change layout of section by hover on section name, click pencil icon. How can I prevent user from changing layout of section?

    Can Publish basically gives your usergroup access to the whole frontend. They can Publish sections also. I don't think there is a way of allowing them to publish articles but also not be able to modify the sections. That would require modifying the code.

      Thanks for your support. I have found a way to fix this problem without modifying the code.

      First I append a signal '-4e4ee1bc9f114' to SEO URL aliases of section. Next, I add ad block which is displayed for specified user group. In ad block, I add following code:

      var turl = window.location + '';
      if (turl.indexOf('-4e4ee1bc9f114/edit') >= 0) {
      turl = turl.replace('-4e4ee1bc9f114\/edit', '-4e4ee1bc9f114');
