Can't prevent my pages from being edited by others when shared

I'm at my wits' end: it seems that all the pages I create on our Mahara site (and which I share with others) can be edited by everybody! I can't find where to deactivate the edit button for visitors of those pages. I don't allow copies of those pages.

I have an Admin account on this mahara site and this happens when I'm logged in as an Admin. I also have a regular member account: when I'm looged in as a member, I don't have this problem. Where do I go wrong?

Can anybody help? 

Many thanks in advance!

Isabelle, from Paris, France

I think I found out why this happened: I was working inside a Group and apparently all pages created from a group can be edited by all the members...

That's right, within a group, members can collaborate on group pages.

If you want to have a read-only page, then you can create one in your own portfolio and then share it with the group from the Share tab.

Cheers,

Hello Isabelle,

Or you could create a Controlled Membership group. There, regular members can't edit group pages.

Cheers

I have this problem also.  I have created a number of pages as administrator of a group and I find that regular members of the group can edit.  The pages are shared only with the group and the group has controlled membership.

It's actually not determined by Controlled Membership, it needs to be a Course group.

In 1.4 I think you can create "Standard: Controlled Membership" groups as well, and any Standard group will allow ordinary members to edit the pages.

Neat.  Thanks for that.  I thought I would have a lot of work to redo since all my pages had many links to each other.
