When editing a resource (in the Manager or QuickEdit), to create a link put the text you want to be the link, then highlight it. The little link icon will be enabled in the editor’s tool bar; click on it to open the insert link dialog. The second field will be "Link List", with a select drop-down to choose the resource you want to link to. Click on the one you want, ant the proper MODx tag will automatically be inserted for you.]]>

On the other hand, it’s not at all difficult to configure a manager user (or several of them) and the QuickManager plugin to control and limit where a manager user can go and what he can do. A manager user can be blocked from accessing the Manager at all, going to a given page on login, and the QM can be given custom buttons and set up to edit various parts of a page. That’s the route I prefer to go. You can even create a front-end "Manager" page with links to various pages that most commonly need editing, or if you have a MaxiGallery management page or anything else with editing or management tools. And there’s a snippet that will log in a Manager user from the front-end, so he doesn’t have to browse to the Manager login page. The major advantage to this method is that admin pages can be unpublished, and the manager user can still see and edit them, while your regular web visitors can’t get at them.]]>

<![CDATA[Using the weblogin to edit from the front end]]> https://forums.modx.com/thread/44793/using-the-weblogin-to-edit-from-the-front-end#dis-post-257669 without me have to set up manager users from the backend. The reason for this is that I won’t always be available to do it for them when they want (I have a day job that takes me away from the province some days) and weblogin seems pretty basic. I am using Modx evo 1.04 with the example content installed. The default template is also being used.

After struggling to understand this document http://bobsguides.com/permissions.html I have tried creating groups with permissions and assigning preferred users to those groups but there doesn’t seem to be an editing option available when I look at the user profile under the manager. Also it seems that resources cannot be open for public viewing and allow web users to edit too. Can I assign a role to a certain user group? If not, what would be the way to go?
