    Hi,
    I just migrates my apps to 5.0. I just wonder how to hide and show Sections control or its Widgets based on certain roles.

    If I try to configure them to not enabled from Administration->Setting... then no roles were able to see that widgets.

    I just hide some widgets to the other roles but administrator role.

    How do I set them?

    Please help!

    Thanks, 
  2. Andrei

    Not too sure what you mean, but I know that each Widget has Permissions that you can set. So you can hide one Control or Widget from some roles. However, I don't think that granular permissions are available for the lower editions. Check the comparison chart between editions, but I know that granular permissions are nto available for all editions. Not sure if that's teh answer you are after.
    Cheers,
    Andrei
