I'm trying to restrict specific content types per user role so that some users can only edit certain content. I've tried configuring content access module but can't seem to restrict content types.
You can set the permissions for each content type and role with Drupals default permissions.
Go to /admin/people/permissions there is a section called Node where you can set the individual permissions for each content type:
- Create new content
- Edit own content
- Edit any content
- Delete own content
- Delete any content
Keep in mind that the permission Bypass content access control overrides the access restrictions of the individual content types. So if a role has this permission, the user can view, edit and delete all content.
