    Hi
    I have a role in sitefinity called 'content author', on 'All Pages' this user has the permission to create edit and publish pages, but they don't have the permissions to approve changes.
    When a user of this type creates a new page, they seem to be granted full permissions on that page, in that they are able to approve and publish their own pages completely.

    Is this intended behaviour? ( I can see a case for it )
    Is there a way to stop this behaviour ? I would rather that a content author got granted the 'all pages' permission set on pages they created, not 'full permissions'. I can definately see scenarios where I would want to have a user creating pages, but a different user approving those pages before they could be published.

    On a related note, is there a way allow editing of a subset of the 'page properties', I would quite like to have an 'seo user' who can only edit the title, description and keywords of a page, but not edit the page itself or change critical properties such as the page name or page caching.

    Hi Matt,

    The permissions issue with the Approve and Publish, are fixed in Sitefinity 3.6 Hotfix. We suggest you to upgrade your project to the latest version.

    As for the critical page options, there is no way to change this at the moment. I will log this as a feature request though.

    Hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
    Georgi

    are these features in 3.6 or planned  for 4.0 ?
    Minor bugs aside for me thisfunctionality would be high on my 'most wanted' list, particularily the first!

    thanks

    Hi Matt,

    The first one is not planned yet. I will see what can be done about this.
    The second actually, is working as expected in the 3.6 release.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Sincerely yours,
