    Umbraco 7.10.4 - User Group Multiple Content Start Nodes

    Hi All,

    As far as I' aware, as of V7.7, I should be able to pick multiple start nodes for user groups.

    I'm on version 7.10.4 (latest at the time of posting this) but I only have the option for "Start node" not "Start Nodes" : enter image description here

    Could anyone help shed some light on why this is?

    Thanks,

    Lee

    Hi Lee and welcome to Our :)

    The screendump you have posted above...What user group is that user assigned? You can't set multiple nodes for the "root" admin user.

    If I go to a user, which is part of the "Editors" group then I can select multiple start nodes or if I assign another user to the "Administrators" group. But not the "Root" administrator as mentioned. See my attached image here:

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hi Jan,

    Thanks so much for your quick response :)

    I'm actually trying to assign multiple start nodes to a new 'user group' that I've created (rather than a specific user).

    Hope that makes sense?

    Hi Lee

    You're welcome :)

    Aaah, I see what's puzzling you - You need to go to the user and assign the nodes the user of the group you created should be able to access. The sections thing is for setting up the sections a member of the user group can access. When you setup a user, which is a member of the group you can add certain start nodes for that user. At the Group level you can restrict the start node in content and media for the entire group though. But then you can fine grain access for the specific users in their settings.

    See the two images below - I should mention that the username displayed is made up so not exposing any real data here.

    Hope this makes sense? :)

    Hi Jan,

    Yes, that makes perfect sense, thank you!

    I was hoping that I could set multiple start nodes for an entire group (so our customer has little to no configuration to perform outside of assigning this group) but that seems like it's not possible and does indeed have to be done on a per-user basis.

    Thank you for confirming though and thank you so much for your time :)

    Kind regards,

    Lee

    Hi everyone,

    I also came across one situation where a user group should have access to two specific children of the home page.

    It would be a good feature update to an already great product.

    Thanks,

    Hi Peter

    I'm not sure I understand? I mean is that not already possible? Unless I misunderstand you it should be possible to select 2 nodes under "home" in the "Content start nodes" setting you see on the image from one of the posts above? :-)

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Hi Jan,

    Aah, misread the above.

    The downside is that you cant set the multiple start nodes on group level, only user level, so each user with that access would need to be configured separately. However, thanks to your comment, I finally found what I was looking for :)

    Thanks,

    Hi Peter

    Ah, good to hear I was able to help you :-)

    And now I get what you mean - I don't know if there are any plans for making it possible on a group level but if no issue about exists on the issue tracker about it feel free to file one if you feel like it.

    Happy umbracoing!
