    I have several of my users assigned to the editor role. What permissions do i need to change to allow them to duplicate content blocks (Content Block > More > Duplicate)?
    Thanks!

    Hi Steve,

    You need to edit the permissions for all pages - the link can be found on the right column of the "Pages" section. Then you can set the create and modify permissions for your custom role ( in my case, test ). Please check the attached screenshot.

    All the best,

    Victor,
    I have several users who are assigned the editor role. They can create, edit, delete and move content blocks but they are not able to duplicate them. Why is that? The website is running version 4.1.1501.0.
    Thanks!

    Hi Steve,

    We have created new project and were able to duplicate the content on the pages as well as the actual pages without having any problems. Please verify that you have set

    Edit page content


    permissions properly if you want to edit content on the pages.

    Hello Steve,

    Just a quick follow up: please provide additional information about your setup if you have set everything properly and the window still pops up.

    Best wishes,

    Victor,
    I believe I have everything set correctly but it is still not working.
    This user (an editor) cannot duplicate content blocks. When I am logged in to this account and try to duplicate a content block nothing happens. No error message, it just doesn't work. Can you please take a look?
    I can send you the login info.

    Thanks!

    I have run into this exact same problem in 5.1 and enabled every permission I could find to no avail.  The only way I have been able to allow users to duplicate a widget in a page is to edit the permissions on the specific widget and enable the role to Change Widget Permissions.

    Telerik, is there no way to enable this globally to avoid having to edit every widget?

    Hi team, 

    I have some doubts in setting the permissions of widgets in a page.

    instead of assigning the permission for each widget separate inside a page, is there any option to set the permission globally for all the widgets of a page.

    In our project we have 2 main roles content manager and content writer. content manager should able to edit, move, delete and can add new content widget to the main page. And content writer only should able to edit and update the content widget to the main page, he is not allowed to delete or move the content widget. Finally it is worked well by editing the permission of each widget separate separately, also i checked it by logging in as content writer and content manager.

    but to do this we need to edit the permission of each widget separately. If i delete a content widget and added a new content widget in that same place the permission of deleted content widget is not inherited to the new one. and again we need to set the permission from the scratch. so im searching a way to set the permission globally.  i also searched  a lot about page permission and permissions of all page, but there is no option to set move, delete permission for the widget, only edit content of the page, add widget to the page permission is there.
    so now my question is, 

    1. how to set permission to (move, delete, edit) all content widgets of a page(globally)?. and 

    2. how to inherit the permissions to new content widget from the deleted one, or from the another content widget of the same page?.

     

    Thank u.
