Users who just registered can login & change profile information, but cannot create certain contents until an admin says they can. I know this can't be achieved using the Drupal Approved/Not arppoved scheme. Are there alternatives? Maybe with permissions?

If possible, I would also like to use a block(or other means) to let the logged in user of their status/permissions e.g. they can only change profile info, cannot create certain contents, etc.

  • Can you elaborate "until an admin says they can" ? – Sandesh Yadav Jan 20 '16 at 22:50
  • I mean what do you mean by "until an admin says" ? – Sandesh Yadav Jan 20 '16 at 23:14
  • a.k.a "approved". But if I do it this way, the users can't login & upload certain contents until they are approved by an admin (source: linked post in the question). – p Ng Jan 20 '16 at 23:21
  • As far as I understood your situation, you have to give "Create Content" permissions to the authenticated users. – Sandesh Yadav Jan 20 '16 at 23:30
  • @SandeshYadav Good solution. Is there a way/module to make granting permissions easier, instead of having to go to the permissions page & scroll down to change them every time we want to change permissions of a user? (We will have to handover to client, and we have to make it more user-friendly). – p Ng Jan 20 '16 at 23:39

As Sandesh suggested, give registered users permission to change their profile information, and remove the permission to create content. When an admin sees that a user is qualified to post content, they will give the user the permission. The permissions will be on an individual basis, so we use the User Permissions module.
