Bulk adding New User Group permissions to pages

I have a site with dozens of pages.  I need to add a new level of Group.  Is there a quick way of giving this new Group permission to be able to edit all/many pages of the website?

Right now I am going through and clicking "Modify Page Settings" on EVERY page one by one and adding the group, but I thought there must be a better way.

Excuse me if I am missing something obvious, it's been a long day.

Re: Bulk adding New User Group permissions to pages

You can either give the module Multiple Permission setting a try:
https://addons.wbce.org/pages/addons.ph … em&item=40
Or Multi page settings:
https://addons.wbce.org/pages/addons.ph … em&item=35
Please notice that Multi page settings renames all pages to their "native" names (e.g. according to the menu link), unfortnately noone has fixed that bug yet, so you should not use that one if you canged the file names manually.

In any case, perform a backup before using one of the named modules.

Re: Bulk adding New User Group permissions to pages

Thank you for your response.

I have to rule out Multi Page Settings as I have changed file names.

I am not comfortable trusting a Beta module from 2014 on a major client project.  Even if I did a backup and ran a test, and it "seemed" to work, I would be worried that an underlying  problem may be introduced that might cause issues in the future.

I guess I will do it the old fashioned way, manually.

Re: Bulk adding New User Group permissions to pages

Can I not just open the database and edit the "admin_groups" column data in the "pages" table?  Or are there more changes required, behind the scenes?

I can understand your worries, although as far as I can see the module only alters the admin_groups table.

If you edit the admin_groups table in the database manually it should work.

Hi Florian.  I used the Multiple Permission module.  Thank you for your help.
