    I created a user role "writer" and disabled the create permission. This means my writer should only be able to edit content and send for approval.


    Problem 1:

    There is a create button at the top that lets my writers create new nodes and ignores the permission i set in user section. I resolved this by hiding the button by tweaking the css. Is there any other better method?


    Problem 2:

    The writer can still add nodes or publish entire site if they right click on root default node called "content". Is there any way I can stop them from creating nodes.?

    Hi I think you posted this to the wrong forum. This forum is about CMSImport I suggest you repost your questions to a general Umbraco Forum.

    Cheers,

    Richard
