Need more control with global settings for Wiki

Need global settings so can hide the tick boxes for who is allowed to edit wikis.

Currently even a contributor can see and update this info whether you want them to or not.
There should be a setting to hide this from the front-end for only admin and editors to see.

Also probably should be able to hide the tick box for 'Enable e-mail notifications' otherwise anyone can turn it off or on.

Cheers.

    For example, a Contributor can edit a wiki and tick 'Anyone' for the 'Allow editing by' settings and then Save that change.

    By doing this, then any member of the public (not logged in visitors) can edit it as much as they like, create new Wikis, view history, etc.

    There needs to be a way to override these default settings for those of us which need more control over what some users can access whether they make these changes by accident or on purpose.

    So having a Global settings in the backend to hide these options would be great, thanks :slight_smile:

    Hi Joe, any update on this?

    In the 'Wiki Settings' for the Wiki Editing page, could we have:

    Wiki Editing page:
    1. Hide/Show "Enable e-mail notifications" with a selection to chose:
    "All Users"
    "No Users"
    "Administrators Only"
    "Admins & Editors Only"

    2. Hide/Show "Allow editing by" fields with a selection to chose:
    "All Users"
    "No Users"
    "Administrators Only"
    "Admins & Editors Only"

    3. Hide/Show "Wiki Categories" drop-down with a selection to chose:
    "All Users"
    "No Users"
    "Administrators Only"
    "Admins & Editors Only"

    4. Hide/Show "Tag Categories" field with a selection to chose:
    "All Users"
    "No Users"
    "Administrators Only"
    "Admins & Editors Only"

    5. Hide/Show "Advanced" tab with a selection to chose:
    "All Users"
    "No Users"
    "Administrators Only"
    "Admins & Editors Only"

    6. Hide/Show "Create new" tab with a selection to chose:
    "All Users"
    "No Users"
    "Administrators Only"
    "Admins & Editors Only"

    The first 2 on my list are most important and really only the admin should be able to have access to modify that by default. I can't see when you would want Joe Bloggs to be able to overwrite what was originally set up so these should be hidden.

    Cheers, Ian
