    Umbraco 7 Back Office: Narrow content by creator

    Hi gang!

    So we have an Umbraco 7 project with varying user types (Admin, Writer). The main premise is that there are articles (Document type name: Article). That said, our current content structure is as follows:

    • Home
    • Articles
    • Contributors
    • --> Writer A
    • ------> Articles
    • --> Writer B
    • ------> Articles

    Each Writer on login is defaulted to their specific "folder" name. I.e. if Writer A logs in, all they'll see is the Writer A folder and the Articles underneath.

    Now, this is problematic because we don't want the URLs to look like this:


    Ideally we'd like it to be:


    Unfortunately we're not aware of a way to only shows articles that the logged in user created under the Articles folder.

    Is anyone aware of a package or an approach that we can take programmatically to solve this issue?

    Thanks! -Steve

    There are a few ways I can think of. You could right some custom code that when you click on a article folder, it looks up the current user and only display articles based on a property on their settings. Ir you creat a custom resolver (not sure if that's possible) or you have diffrent document types (don't like this but technically possible) :) Charlie.

    Hi Charles,

    Thanks for the info.

    Unfortunately they're all the same document type.

    Outside of that, is it actually possible to show a custom list of articles by writing some custom server side code?
