Hi, I'm using MOSS 2007 as the CMS for a website, with two web-applications one for creating, editing and maintaining the content wiht Windows Authtentication, the other Forms authentication and anonymous access to show the approved and "published" content. I now have a need for external proof readers to be able to login to the 1st web application and see all the content (draft and checked-in) but not to edit the content.
The standard AD and MOSS rights can be provided, though we find it is not possible out of the box or with a custom permissions group to let these people see all content regardless of its approved status. We've played a little with jQuery in the past and wondered if we could use it to remove or hide the options to checkin/checkout from the page list and from the page editing toolbar. If it was possible, then we would create a custom group of users that this should apply to.
I don't know if it is possible for jQuery (as its client based) to be able to determine the role of the user logged in and then to apply its magic for that role only. Any thoughts ?
Looking in the forum I've seen other suggestions for hiding buttons (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1257
) and (http://www.endusersharepoint.com/2009/1 ... th-jquery/
)in the toolbars and these need to know the style element for each thing to hide or remove. I've got no idea how to find those for the context menu or for the page editing tool bar so any help would be greatly appreciated.
We have to use MOSS 2007 for the foreseeable future before an upgrade to 2010 where I believe the user rights there will allow this type of use. Looking forward to all your helpful ideas.
