News Feed Mod

Postby chiefwiggum » Feb 20, 2012 12:13 pm


Sorry if this is a duplicated post, i did search but couldnt find anything to match my questions.

I'm also not 100% this is a mod!!
What i'd like to be able to do, is have by default users only able to post news to their assigned projects and only allow admins the ability to post news to "All Projects" - Is it possible to achieve this?

Pete :D

Oh, did anyone else get stumpped by the anti spam question? - I ended up Googling the question to get the answer, so i'd love it if someone could explain how to get the right figure!! :)

You have to use page "Manage" -> "Manage Configuration" -> "Configuration Report"

Project Name: The one you want to configure
Configuration Option: manage_news_threshold
Type: int
Value: 55

The example of 55 means all developers, managers, administrators

Use one of the following numbers if you use a default installation without any customized access levels

Code: Select all
define( 'ANYBODY', 0 );
define( 'VIEWER', 10 );
define( 'REPORTER', 25 );
define( 'UPDATER', 40 );
define( 'DEVELOPER', 55 );
define( 'MANAGER', 70 );
define( 'ADMINISTRATOR', 90 );
define( 'NOBODY', 100 );
Please use Search before posting and read the Manual
