Edit access to contributors

System administrators can configure ResourceSpace to grant contributors edit access to the resources they have uploaded. To enable this, set the following configuration option:

$edit_access_for_contributor = true;

If administrators find that certain user groups need to have edit access to Active state but they don't want those users to be able to edit resources they haven't contributed, ResourceSpace can be configured to force edit access only to contributors, regardless of what edit access is granted via general permissions (e.g e0 for Active state). To set this, add the following to your configuration file or in a specific user group configuration override:

$edit_only_own_contributions = true;
