by Wolfgang Ziegler,
Yet another node access module.
So this module allows you to manage permissions for content types by role and author. It allows
you to specifiy custom view, edit and delete permissions for each content type. Optionally you
can also enable per node access settings, so you can customize the access for each node.
In particular
* it comes with sensible defaults, so you need not configure anything and everything stays working
* it is as flexible as you want. It can work with per content type settings, per node settings
as well as with flexible Access Control Lists.
* it trys to reuse existing functionality instead of reimplementing it. So one can install the ACL
module and set per user access control settings per node.
* it optimizes the written node grants, so that only really necessary grants are written.
So the module is simple to use, but can be configured to provide really fine-grained permissions!
* Copy the content access module's directory to your modules directory and activate the module.
* Optionally download and install the ACL module too.
* Edit a content type at admin/content/types. There will be a new tab "Access Control".
ACL Module
You can find the ACL module at Note that you'll need to install at
least version 1.4 of the module. To make use of Access Control Lists you'll need to enable per node
access control settings for a content type. At the access control tab of such a node you'll be
able to grant single users view, edit or delete permission for this node.
Enabling this module on big sites
Drupal 5.1 uses a lot of memory, as soon as you enable this, or any other node access module on a
site with a lot of existing nodes, which means thousands of nodes. This is problem of drupal itself,
and is fixed in the latest development snapshot of 5.x (
So if you are experiencing memory issues or you are planning to enable this on such a big site update
to the latest development snapshot of drupal 5.x before.
You can find it here:
If drupal 5.2 is already released at the time you read that, it will also contain the fix.
For the code have a look at the branches DRUPAL-5, ..
