I've enabled field permissions and they are not working across the board. No matter what setting I make, users are restricted from editing fields. Users are also restricted from editing field even if I haven't activated field_permissions for that field yet.

#1246966: Untouched fields acting like they are enabled
#1250700: Field permissions not working for Video Embed Field

This may be a D7 core issue. Postponing until I have more information.

Update to 7.x-1.x-dev?

Michael-Inet’s picture

Not real sure where to add this, so adding more info here...

Drupal version: 7.9
Field Permissions: 7.x-1.0-beta1

I install Field Permissions, assign myself "Administer field permissions", and click Configure off the Module page (/admin/reports/fields/permissions)

- the standard "body" field across all content types becomes Private, and
- there is no way on that page to make anything Public.
- (besides which it's a reports page, so why is Configure going there?)

This image:


indicates a configuration path should be something like /admin/structure/fields/permissions, but there aren't any pages under Structure that look anything like that page.

So, 64-thousand dollar questions, where do I set the body field for all types to Public? Why did it default to Private? Also, can you please add how to do this to the documentation?


Edit: At the bottom of this page /admin/structure/types/manage/page/fields/body you can set "Body field settings", which, contrary to expectation, apply to all Body fields across all Content Types.

Lowering priority as a somewhat related issue was just recently fixed. Again, mind updating to 7.x-1.x-dev and reporting back?

Holy cow. Thanks Michael-Inet, I've been trying to figure this out for weeks, with crankier and crankier users.

RobLoach, it would be GREAT if this was something that could be at least noted someplace other than this thread... (and yes, I tried upgrading to the dev version first.)
