My website users will have the ability to post pictures in a private photo gallery. I would like for those users to be able to grant "view" permissions for their private gallery to other users.

  • Bob (an authenticated user, not an admin) has a private photo gallery
  • He wants Dave (another authenticated user, also not an admin) to be able to view his private photo gallery
  • Bob grants permission to Dave, allowing Dave to view that gallery
  • Bob can revoke permission from Dave at any time

Is there a module/configuration that will this type of user-controlled granting of permissions?

Perhaps consider using Organic Groups which allow users to create and control groups of users and curate content for them.

There is also Node Access User Reference which is slightly more specific.

Both should work together but I think you will only need one of them for your stated needs.

  • Node access user reference looks like it is exactly what I need. Thank you!
