Create a "OnlyViewGroup" with only view rights

Hello. I want to create a Group which could only view the wiki. That means this group couldn't edit a page or create a new site.

Here you find out information about this. But I don't understand how i could implement.

Do you know how I could implement this?

Hi Jenny, did you read System.AccessControl? Which parts aren't clear to you?

Thank you. I have looked on another page. Now the testuser is in the Group "OnlyViewGroup" and the testuser couldn't edit pages. Thanks.

hmmm.. It doesn't works frown, sad smile The only pages which the testuser can't edit are the Adminpages. The Mainpage and the other pages could be edit from the testuser. I don't know why it dosn't works.

This is my WebPreferences :

Access control

Users or groups who are allowed to view, change and rename topics in the System web

Set ALLOWWEBCHANGE = AdminGroup Set ALLOWWEBRENAME = AdminGroup

Users or groups who aren't allowed to view, change and rename topics in the System web

Set DENYWEBCHANGE = OnlyViewGroup Set DENYWEBRENAME = OnlyViewGroup

Users or groups allowed to change or rename this WebPreferences topic

Set ALLOWTOPICCHANGE = AdminGroup Set DENYTOPICCHANGE = OnlyViewGroup Set ALLOWTOPICRENAME = AdminGroup Set DENYTOPICRENAME = OnlyViewGroup

What are the differents between topic and web? I think topic is the page and web the komplete wiki.

It looks like there's an error in the syntax for setting permissions. Each permission should be an individual bulleted item. Can you confirm exactly how you formatted the permissions? Also, the DENYTOPICCHANGE in WebPreferences should not be necessary, given the previous settings.
