Disable edit permissions to authenticated users in Drupal

Hello Expersts,

I was wondering, I just added a new user to my site using drupal. I just give him permissions to access the content of the site. But when that user logs in, he can see the view and edit tabs on its account. I just want him to see the files I upload on his account, nothing else. Authenticated users are only allow to see the information I posted in their account.  

Is there anyway to remove these tabs for authenticated users?

Thanks in advance,

Winter

Certainly, go to example.com/admin/user/permissions, find the "node module" header. Uncheck some of the boxes under authenticated users.

If you're new to drupal read over the beginners cookbook here, http://drupal.org/handbook/customization/tutorials/beginners-cookbook; especially this page, http://drupal.org/node/120614.

Thanks for your answer Thomas, but what you are suggesting is what I did before. I am new to drupal and already read the cookbook. I am going to keep checking. Maybe I am doing something wrong creating the content for each authenticated users.. I've checked that so many times that I think I am going to take a rest.

I will be back later,

Thanks

I'm sorry this has been so frustrating, well make sure that the user you are trying to limit the permissions on does not have any other roles, or else he can get permissions from those roles.

Also, If this user was the first user created on the drupal site, he will automatically have all permissions regardless of what the check-boxes are.

It seems that this module: tab_tamer will do the job, but it will disable the tabs for everyone including admin. Man!, and I was pretty sure that I found the answer. I will keep looking around to see how to disable all the tabs for users except for the admin...

I am almost positive you can solve your problems with permissions.

1. Make sure this user you are dealing with  doesn't have an admin role.

2. Go to example.com/admin/user/permissions and uncheck every box under the column "authenticated user".

3. Only check the box "access content" in the "node module" header under the  "authenticated user" column.

Now regular users will not see the tabs.

Hi Thomas,

I did exactly what you said which was the same thing I did before. But those tabs are still there, I think it is ridiculous. authenticated users only have access to content permission, nothing else. hmmm.It seems under the edit tag they can not change the email address, but why the edit tab is still there if they are not suppose to change anything? It seems that I will have to hide those tabs using css since it seems they cannot edi anything anyway. what do you think?

Ahh, thanks for a screenshot.

That is the "edit" tab for the user account, completely different.

Apparently this can't be done in Drupal code, I never knew that.

I would install this module, http://drupal.org/project/userprotect.
