Permissions

The following sections list the permissions available for Fred. The subhead is the permission key used in code, followed by a brief description of where and what those permissions control Most of these permissions can be used both with the mgr context and front-end contexts like web. However there are few that only apply to mgr or front-end contexts.

For example, if you apply the fred permission to the mgr Context, users will see the Fred Extra in the Manager. If you apply it to a front-end context, the Fred controls will apear when browsing the site from the front-end (if assigned to a page’s Template). Applying the fred_settings permission to mgr context will do nothing as this permission is only used in front-end to be able to see the Settings tab in the sidebar menu.
