Hello, currently I have enabled network(multisite) on my wordpress.
A plugin called User Role Editor installed, it allows to create other roles.

I have do the research https://www.joomunited.com/support/pre-sales-forum/securing-folders-based-on-role
This thread is asking what i am asking, and i read Media display restriction section, but this is base on user.

Can this plugin use role to create folder instead of user? that means if the user under role 1, then they can see medias under role 1 folder only.
Or both folders will created, they are user one(only own user can see the media) and role one(only users under this role can see the media).

If i buy this plugin, your team will help to add this function? or give me some ideas how to add this function by myself(maybe i will do the programming part to extend it).

Hi,

Thanks for contacting us.
To be clear, you mean create automatically a folder based on user role (as an option). So, only users that are in a specific user group can see and manage media from this folder. Is that correct?

This is not currently implemented, the current limitation is only a folder per user as you've seen. Technically, the 2 restrictions can get along with. If you're a developer we can point you in the right direction but we can't code all the stuff :) The developer in charge is currently full time booking in a planning we've defined.

Of course if you want work on that from your side I would be happy to offer you a license and we could reintegrate your work in the plugin after we review all that. Let me know.

Cheers,

Hi Tristan, you mention user role and user group, they are same thing right? if yes, then your description is correct.

This is great since you can point me the right direction to implement. I think i can try it.

If this is hard for me,maybe the folder(based on user role) no need to create automatically, it can be create by admin, of course the folder name must same as role name. then only users they are in a specific user group can see and manage media from this folder. i think this is easy to implement, maybe just modify the select query string when showing media files, right?

If all the things ok, i think i will buy this plugin, thanks.

Yes it's the same, it's just that user group is the name in Joomla not in WordPress :)
Yes you can give a shot.

I have turn on " Auto create one folder per editor" but it only made folders for the 2 administrators.
And not for all other users. Can it make folders auto for ieach Author= user?

The folder auto creation is for new users only not existing ones, maybe that' why.

As this forum is only for pre-sale questions, for all technical support, please drop us a ticket (menu Support > Ticket support).
The developer in charge will take a look at that.

Thanks a lot! cheers,
