Links 2.0 Mod: 2-level admin
Hello everyone,

I'm wondering if it's possible to creare a two-level admin on Links 2.0. There would be the main/standard admin, and I would like to add a lower-level access where an assistant or "moderator" could add/edit/approve new links without having access to the entire backend system. I'm on Unix.

If this is something you can do, please contact me at info@jamilawhite.com with your info, rate, turnaround time, and references.

It's not immediately obvious which features you want to prevent the junior admin having access to. If they can add/edit/approve links, that's most of the functionality of the program.

Do you not want them to have access to the build option (in which case their edits won't be made "live") or is it the templates you're worried about? (Switching to the Perl based templates will prevent editing other than via FTP.)

It shouldn't be too hard to create a second admin script (with certain options removed and the paths adjusted) in another password protected directory.
