You can change permissions per section. You can allow and deny to certain users or roles to perform different actions with a section. For example, allow all users of a certain role to edit News items.
To manage permissions by sections, navigate to Administration » Permissions and in the toolbar, click by Section.
NOTE: If there are no users displayed, it does not mean that nobody can perform the action. All users that belong to the roles that have permission for the action inherit the permissions from this role.
NOTE: By default, the Administrators role has permission for all actions and the Administrators role is not displayed in the list of roles and users who have permission for the action. Only in case there are no other roles or users who have permission, under the action the system displays Administrators only.
IMPORTANT: If a user is explicitly granted permission for an action, but one or more of the user's roles are explicitly denied permission for this action, then the user does not have permission for the action.
In you have multisite, for all content modules, you can have more than one content provider. If you have more than one content provider for a particular section, you can select the provider for which you want to change permissions. For example, if your News module uses two content providers, you can select the provider whose permissions you want to change.
For more information, see Share content providers of modules.
After you open a section to change its permissions, use the dropdown box to select the content provider.
If the provider is used in more than one site, you can also use the link next to the dropdown box to review the sites where the permission change will affect.
