Does anyone know if there is a way to do what Restricted Area for EE1 does but for EE2?


This is a hugely important feature that would allow members to be given specific permissions not only based on which group they belong to, but also on a member specific level as well.

So for example, the user belongs to Group A which has only access to Channel A. Another user belongs to Group B which has access to Channel A, Channel B and Channel C. This feature would allow another user from Group A to also have access to Channel B only (alongside their Group A permission of Channel A).

SPO far as I can tell, the only comprehensive multiple membership capability for EE is HooBlong Multiple Memberships

I believe you can restrict channel access on per-group basis natively in member group preferences.

To restrict access to individual entries, or on per-member basis, consider Entry Access.

Member Categories might also be helpful if you need to restrict access on category basis.

  • Thanks! Isn't Entry Access for specific entries only though? I need to be able to provide channel access on a per-member basis...or does it do that as well?
