Prevent one user from editing their own content


Recommended Posts


I have a user who is part of a group with over 30 accounts.  I want to allow all users to edit their content EXCEPT one user.  I couldn't find a setting to prohibit one user account from editing their own posts.  Is there a way to prohibit one specific user from editing their posts?

If not, my assumption is this can only be done as a group setting and I could create a new group with that restriction and assign the user to that group.  I didn't want to do this as other users may realize that one account is separate.  Is it possible to create another group with this restriction and assign it as a secondary group?  I wasn't sure if the primary group setting to edit would override a secondary group setting to prohibit that.

If nothing is feasible from above, I thought about turning on full edit log capability.  The question I have there is - who can view that edit log information?  Is it shown on each post that is edited, or by an admin only?

In order to perform this, you would need to move the user to a new primary group. Simply adding this as a secondary group will not prevent them from editing due to the permission hierarchy.
