Permissions and settings

Permissions for dynamic modules

To change the permissions for a dynamic module, click Administration » Permissions and click your module in the tree of the left side of the page.

Permissions for dynamic content items

You can set permission for dynamic content items of a certain type and you can set individual permissions for each field of a dynamic type. For example, some users can change the answer to an FAQ, others can only view it, but can create questions. To be able to set permissions for individual fields, you must have enabled this when Create a dynamic content type in Step 9.

To change the permissions for all items of certain dynamic type, navigate to the page of this type. On your dynamic content type page, click Permissions link in the right side of the page.

The Permissions page appears.

For more information about changing permissions, see Overview: Permissions.

Sharing dynamic modules between multiple sites

If you have a multisite license, you can share dynamic modules that you have created between all of your sites. 
For more information, see Share module content.

Search indexes

For more information about including a dynamic module items in search indexes, see Administration: Create search indexes.

URL generation

The URL for a hierarchical item is created by combining all of the parent item’s URLs. When an item is moved to another parent, its URL is regenerated. When you modify the structure of a module, for example, change the parent of a content type, the URLs of all items are recompiled according to the new structure.

EXAMPLE: In the following hierarchy Country » City » Hotel, the USA country has URL ~/usa. The URL of New York city, as child of USA, is ~/usa/new-york and the URL of Hilton hotel in New York - ~/usa/new-york/hilton. If Hilton hotel is moved from New York to Washington, its URL becomes ~/usa/washington/hilton. The old URL continues to work, in order to prevent breaking changes.
