I would love to be able to use this module, it would fix a lot of issues I've been having. I guess I'm not sure how to properly set it up. It is installed and seems like it should work, however I think that the general "access control" settings are over-riding whatever I enter in the node privacy. For instance, if "access content" is checked - all nodes are visable (regardless of what is checked off in the module) - and vice versa. Any thoughts? Am I missing something obvious? I have Drupal 6.2 running.

I'm having the same issue with Drupal 4.6. I have installed the module and it still enables everyone, including unregistered users, access to the entire site. I'm simply trying to keep anonymous users from accessing certain parts of the site. I have unchecked most all ticks in the access control section and still to no avail. HELP!!! Please forgive my ignorance but I'd really like to resolve this issue and move on to other things.

Tidying up old issues. Focus now is on Drupal 5 version of the module. If there is still demand for this to be resolved and it gets resumbitted then I'll look into finding a solution.

I got the same problems as above with Drupal 5.3. What I'm wondering about is that the modules runs perfectly a few weeks about.

Have you tried running Rebuild Permissions (admin/content/node-settings)? It's at Administer - Content Management - Post Settings.

Found it, the modul Taxonomy Access Control was installed and activated, which overwrote the Node Privacy by Role.

Awesome thanks. Rebuilding worked!!!

I did have to go through all the content types and set the permissions :(

drupal 6.x, v6 transparent admin
I am looking for transparent administration, open, visible and sometimes editable admin settings with security. based on permissions, locked individually (as a node?), password protected, view and/or edit choice for admin inserted at the top or bottom of all admin/settings pages. even better, password or radio button next to every settings choice as viewable and/or editable similar to form field protect. a prominent notification to the user, “you can view this page of administration settings, if they require edit, please email administration with your request link”. Possibly even attached comment or site note section, ability to insert instruction or voting widget.
I gather this is the approach taken by adding access control to the core and maybe it is similar to drupal core building. I have been looking at everything I can find and I’m not a programmer yet, so I need to pass what I’ve found on to someone else here. If someone can put these pieces together or have experience with something similar with any version 4,5,6,7. i'm listing this at all of these locations aswell. Rsvp, elisa

Please don't hijack closed threads and cross post all over the place. http://drupal.org/user/251761/track shows all the other places you copy and pasted to.

Using node privacy by role gives you role restrictions per node and then you can add a password check with http://drupal.org/project/protected_node

If that doesn't work for you, most of the access control module maintainers make a living from Drupal and may be for hire.
