First post here! ;) I'm not getting any help from the Drupal forums on this, maybe someone can help me out...Does anyone know of a module that I can use so that an Author can allow access to a user requesting access to the Author's node. The setup would be like this: 1. An Author would create a private node, but viewable in teaser form. 2. Any Authenticated user could then request access to the node/full view. 3. The Author would then have a queue, say in their own user environment, where he/she could approve or deny access to the node/full view for the requesting user. Thank you very much!

  • how scalable does this have to be? Are you thinking of tens, hundreds or thousands of users getting access to a node? Is "hiding a link" good enough or do you need robust access control? Access will be granted for a specific node, not for all nodes of the author, right? Finally, Dupal 6 or 7?

  • Hey Mototribe! Thanks for the reply! Most nodes would only need about maybe 10 users tops. I'm not sure if hiding a link makes sense, maybe I'm not understanding the idea? Yes only specific nodes that a user wants access to. Drupal 7.

I was thinking about building a simple access system, but that would be like re-inventing the wheel.

Take a look at content_access in combination with ACL. The flexiaccess might be another option.

  • I looked at all of this individually today. Maybe I need to combine them all in some way. Thanks!
