I'm developing a website for a comprehensive but not professional user. He has the permissions to configure blocks (in order to tweak minor things like ordering or so). Now I have a block view and I want to allow him to configure the number of displayed items for that block without giving him the permissions for view configuration in general.

Is there a way to put certain aspects of a block view configuration onto the configure block page or a similarly consistent way to achieve that?

(working on drupal 7 with views 3.10, btw.)

Views UI: Edit Basic Settings may meet your needs.

"Views UI: Edit Basic Settings" places edit tabs on Views pages, similar to node pages, and allows users with the correct permission to modify their header, footer, title, empty text, or number of items to display. This module also provides a separate interface that displays a list of views. All Views are defined by you, so you can exclude certain Views.

  • Awesome, exactly what I was looking for. Thanks a lot!
