Access: The MMI Visibility System

Guiding Principal

The MMI project is a community collaboration. As such, content on the site should be available to as wide an audience as possible. In general, content is visible to members.

Visibility Rules

By default, content on the site will be visible to anyone, including individuals who are not logged in to the site.

Visibility of content that is being prepared and/or reviewed is determined by the workflow state. While adding content, it is recommended the access in the workflow is set to "Visible to Members".

All content assigned to a group is visible to group members, regardless of the workflow state.

Content that is flagged as objectionable is "Invisible." This content will be examined by the trashman, and either be deleted, or quarantined.
