johninho created the topic: Add project =/ Edit project?
Hi there, I would like to ask if it is possible to change these permissions...I want someone to be able to edit a specific project (for example the project manager) but it doesn't mean that I want him to add projects as well. He is responsible only for that project and not all projects (present ones, future ones etc) Thanks in advance
edit: Also I would like guests to view the projects..so setting a group etc isn't a solution I guess.

Hi - it would take some modification to the code to achieve this. Currently a user must have add/edit permissions to be able to edit projects -- it sounds like if you gave the 'manager' user add/edit permissions, you would just need to hide the 'add project' option from the front-end which would just require changing a few lines of code in the 'com_projectlog/views/cat/tmpl/default.php:
This would allow admin to add projects, but regular users with add/edit permissions would not see the 'Add Project' option. Of course this hasn't been tested thoroughly but hopefully gets you on the right track.
As far as letting guests view projects, just set your basic access setting to 'Public' in the Projectlog parameters. Hope this helps.
