Modifying User Account Roles and Privileges


This plugin is pretty raw at present, and doesn’t do anything until you start editing the plugin itself. You shouldn’t install this unless you have some basic knowledge of editing plugins.


Privilege assignments determine what actions a Textpattern user is allowed to perform on the administrative side of the site.

This plugin allows you to alter the default settings without having to hack your Textpattern installation.

For those of you who would prefer a GUI, try this version: bot_privs

Change Log

Version 0.2 simply changes this plugin’s name to comply with Textpattern plugin conventions. It is now called boy_privs rather than tame_privs. Not a very exciting development, I know, but hey, I’m a busy guy.

updated the link

I need to update this plugin, will have a look at doing that.

I’d be interested to know how you get on. Does it still work OK?


Hi Mike,
Your plugin works ok and it helped me a lot in the past.
I just wanted to let you know that some months ago I added a graphical interface to it and released it as bot_privs (at the time it was still called “tame_privs” so the name was less similar than now, sorry). Obviously you were fully credited in the plugin description and help.

hey redbot, no problems, that’s what open source is all about. I’ve actually added a link to your version in my documentation as many people will prefer a GUI. Might start using your version myself!
