    I don't know if this is a bug or not, but I've given some non-admins every news-related permission there is, but they do not see "Custom Fields for News" under the Settings for news section.  Admins DO see this.  I can't find in Permissions where I can enable this.

    In addition, clicking on "Settings" for non-admins yields a 404 error.  I don't know if that is related.

    Hello Chris Carrier,

    Although there is no permissions that needs to be set to explicitly allow/deny users to add custom fields for content modules, the setting is visible only to Administrators. Thank you for pointing out the need for custom roles, we have discussed it internally and logged a task for implementing such functionality for the future releases. Once again thanks a lot for the constructive feedback, and please excuse us if any inconvenience has been caused.
