DIsable specific fields

First off - great plugin for what should be native functionality. I've set it up for multiple departments and now I don't have to focus on adding content, in turn I can focus on the development.

Since content editors (custom group) now have access to add new articles and edit existing ones, I don't want them editing the URL titles as this might break the site and effect our SEO. Is there a way to lock down the URL title fields by channel or by user?

That would be really nice to have.

    Hi Conrad,

    This is part of the native EE publish page customisation: . Hit 'show toolbar' and you can set up custom layouts for different member groups. I think that's what you mean, but I might be wrong!

    Hey Rob -
    This hides the field completely. The use case is this:
    1. New entry: Content Editor should be able to edit and write custom URL
    Titles instead of default E replicating from the Title field

    2. Old Entry - user is editing content: Should not be able to edit URL
    title. Editors n=might not understand the ramifications of editing this

    Interesting idea. We'll add it to the suggestion ideas pile. You could write a simple accessory to do with this JS in the meantime possibly?
