just building a site for a charity, they need the CMS to allow various people to update their own pages etc.

Is there a way to limit specific users to edit specific cms insert regions? if you follow

No PowerCMS does not have the ability to have multiple users and limit which pages can be edited by a certain user, it is limited to one administrative user.

What you could do is create a PowerCMS instance for each user, each with its own powerCMS Database, for example

connects to database: cms_user1

connects to database: cms_user2

connects to database: cms_user3

connects to database: cms_user4

This separates out the individual users pages into separate databases, you just have to be careful when putting the site together to display the content.

Yes. You can use Security Assist to restrict users to certain functionality. But that requires that you give the users a level (1-10 for example) and based on each level you can create a rule. And then you could use the Security Assist Show Region server behavior to show/hide certain functionality on each page.

The easier way would be to add the restriction to the actual pages. For example, you could have users that could insert new region only and other that could edit existing regions only.
