I am in the process of launching a dnn site where I am only giving the client limited access to administrative functions. Things began very well as I created a new role, assigned them to it, and began to give them view permissions for the admin pages they should have access to and edit permissions on the modules they needed to administer (such as users).
When I got to taxonomy I ran into some security inconsistencies. Giving them edit permissions on the module added the edit buttons to the grid; however they have no ability to add/edit/delete actual terms. This is a show stopper. They MUST be able to manage the tags on their site, but at the same time I CANNOT give them full admin access to the site because they will screw it up (trust me on this).
Now I am left with a problem. Give them admin access and lose the ability to select what they can and can't do, or give them another roll and lose the ability to give them some of the access that the design specs for the site call for.
At this point I am going to simply get the source version of dnn and rewrite the module (This is not the first time I have had to do this....I had to rewrite the banner module since you chose to use tables instead of unordered lists...blech lol)
Please tell me I am simply missing something somewhere and I can enable them to edit taxonomy without making them admins, or that there will be a patch to make this module consistent with other dnn modules....meaning that edit permission on the module is ACTUALLY edit permission.
Thank you for you time.
