We're using Liferay 6.0 as an internal intranet.

We want to have multiple people be able to collaborate on a blog before it's published, but not looking to use the workflow. So have more than the owner be able to see scheduled blogs and edit them.

I've created a new role, added a user group to it, and given that role all permissions related to blogs (CP -> Roles -> Define Permissions -> Blogs). They are still not seeing the edit buttons for blog posts though. What permissions am I missing?

If it changes anything, the blog posts were created by an admin user, and I can edit blogs (but I'm another admin user).

Thanks

Hi Steve,

For the role you have created to edit the blogs entry, define all permission for blog as it is in attachment.
Its working for me.

I found another interesting detail. The permissions are actually working, ie the user can edit the blog if they go in through the control panel. But for some reason the edit buttons that appear in the blog post for editing are hidden. I tried making them a site admin (same as me, I see the edit buttons) and the same thing was happening.

Anyone seen this or know where the visibility of that element is controlled?

Thanks,
Steve

I am finding this exact problem in 6.2 - did you ever get a solution or can anybody else help?

Person has permission to edit the blog - can from the control panel but the edit button is not showing on the page.
