Customizing Permissions

When your UDrupal site is first set up, all UDrupal Core modules are available to you. By default, your UDrupal site has a number of pre-configured modules automatically turned on. (View the list of default modules and permissions.)

You can enable new features on your UDrupal Web site by turning on additional modules available in the UDrupal core. (View the list of all modules available in UDrupal Core.) In this example, we'll turn on the Drupal Blog and Blog API modules and configure their permissions.

  1. Navigate to the Modules page [Administer > Site building > Modules].

  2. Scroll down the list until you see the list of Core - optional modules. You may have to click on the entry to see the listing of optional modules included in UDrupal Core.
  3. Select the checkboxes in front of Blog and Blog API.


  4. Click Save configuration at the bottom of the page.

  5. Navigate to the Permissions page [Administer > User management > Permissions].

  6. Scroll down the list of Permissions and select the appropriate checkboxes to set the permissions for both the Blog module and the Blog API module. You will have to turn on the appropriate permissions for each role on your Web site.

    In this example, we have required a user to at least be an authenticated user to create a blog posting, and we've assigned administrators, content providers, and publishers some additional permissions.
  7. Click Save permissions.
