Enable Visitor Groups Button in Global Navigation



I'm sure this must be relatively straight forward but I've been unable to track down so far. We have a group of 'super' editors and we want them to be able to manage Visitor Groups but I can't find how to make this available to them - it only seems to be available to Administrators.

I've tried adding a location in the web.config and have checked in admin mode and I there is nothing in the documentation that I have seen that relates to this.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Mark,

I believe it is controlled by one of the virtual roles.

My guess is that it's the CmsAdmins role. Add your role to that mapped role and it should work.

Hi Toni,

But if I add my role to that virtual role won't that enable admin mode for the role? I wnat the role to access the Visitor Groups but not have access to Admin mode.

One hack-y thing you could do is to restrict access to the admin location in web.config.

Hello Mark

The two roles that control access are CmsAdmins (that is a virtual role as Toni mentioned) and also VisitorGroupAdmins. VisitorGroupAdmins doesn't exist by default.

So if you want to grant access you should be able to create a group called VisitorGroupAdmins and add your users to it.

Hi David - that did the trick!

Thank you both for your help,
