I have an issue that has arisen and i'm looking for a solution.
I have a website that has many sections of the site built within the page hierarchy. For example it looks something like this:
Fruits --- Apple ------ Red Delicious --- Banana Vegetables --- Carrot --- Potato ------ Sweet Potato Dairy --- Milk
The issue is that there is a need for users to be able to edit one section of the site (such as editing Vegetables) and all of it's children, but not other sections. Further, the people should be able to add New Pages, but only as children of pages they can edit.
I'm not sure what to do in this situation in order to achieve this or what tools I should use. I considered moving the sections to separate post types and instead restricting those, but I want the top level pages to have a base level slug (mysite.com/vegetables).
If you need further clarification let me know.
