    Hi,

    I am new to sitefinity and currently testing the Blogs module.  I need to create permissions at blog level not the module level so that one blog editor is only restricted to edited permitted blogs and not all blogs.  Is this possible? If yes please let me know how to do it.

    Hi vipul patel,

    You could take a look at this post where I sent a reply to the same question.

    Hi Ivan,

    Thanks for your quick reply,  I guess the solution suggested by you only hides the delete column of the blog list view, that can be achieved through permissions also, please let me know if i am correct, or if i am wrong please explain in detail of how to use the workaround. Is it possible to customize this permissions at a blog level rather then module level?

    Hi vipul patel,

    The architecture of Sitefinity 3.x is working with permissions on the Module level when it comes to permissions and modules. This is why Ivan suggested this workaround. In this architecture it is not possible to customize the permissions for the built in module to be applied on the blog/post level. This workaround compensates for what is not achievable in this current architecture.

    In Sitefinity 4.0 we are going to have granular permissions going down to the single item level.

    Kind regards,

    Hello vipul patel,

    Basically you can make UI modifications to prevent users having access to the buttons allowing them to perform CRUD operations on content items.
