    Viewer User Permissions

    Hi

    Does anyone know if it's possible to create a user and give them 'Browse Node' permissions only. Basically we want to create a user who can login to Umbraco and view the content in the tree without being able to do anything else.

    If I do this at the moment this is what my user sees when they login: The current user doesn't have permissions to edit this document. Please contact the system administrator.

    Thanks

    Aileen

    Hi Aileen

    If you're using v4 this should work out of the box.

    But I suspect that you're currently testing on v5 beta 1? I'm sure that you will be able to set this once the v5 release is ready for prime time. Still in beta, still a few bugs to be handled - I've seen this behaviour myself in v5 beta 1 :)

    Hi Jan

    I'm using version 4.7.1. It looks like you need at least permissions to edit the nodes if you want to view them. Do you know whether this is a bug?

    Thanks
