I've enabled field permissions and they are not working across the board. No matter what setting I make, users are restricted from editing fields. Users are also restricted from editing field even if I haven't activated field_permissions for that field yet.

This may be a D7 core issue. Postponing until I have more information.

Update to 7.x-1.x-dev?

Not real sure where to add this, so adding more info here...

Drupal version: 7.9
Field Permissions: 7.x-1.0-beta1

I install Field Permissions, assign myself "Administer field permissions", and click Configure off the Module page (/admin/reports/fields/permissions)

- the standard "body" field across all content types becomes Private, and
- there is no way on that page to make anything Public.
- (besides which it's a reports page, so why is Configure going there?)

This image:


indicates a configuration path should be something like /admin/structure/fields/permissions, but there aren't any pages under Structure that look anything like that page.

So, 64-thousand dollar questions, where do I set the body field for all types to Public? Why did it default to Private? Also, can you please add how to do this to the documentation?


Edit: At the bottom of this page /admin/structure/types/manage/page/fields/body you can set "Body field settings", which, contrary to expectation, apply to all Body fields across all Content Types.

Priority:Critical» Major

Lowering priority as a somewhat related issue was just recently fixed. Again, mind updating to 7.x-1.x-dev and reporting back?
