I and a collaborator both need to develop our wiki, but earlier after he registered on line he lost the ability to do those things we needed to do. So, so I made him into an admin. I haven't heard back from him. Strange, I thought, it should be that registered users have more privileges rather than fewer.
I created a test identity that I called "nanny." When logged on as nanny, I added a link, created a page, and succeeded in writing content to that page.
As nanny I visited another page that I had earlier picked out and assigned nanny's status to be "read." As nanny, I could not edit it. That is the way I would like all pages to behave for people who are not logged in. If I start having unruly logged-on users, I would like to be able to reduce their status to "read" only.
At the suggestion of my collaborator, I created a "green room" page for people desiring to add material but only after discussing it with others. That page should be open only to logged in users. I set it up with no privileges for @all. When not logged in or when logged in as nanny I cannot read or edit it. People not logged in should not be able to read it, but logged-in users should be able to read and edit.
Do I have to set permissions to edit page by page and user by user? Or am I going about it the wrong way? What global permission should I set? Thanks.
