I use Pro and the hidden default settings and am very satisfied with it.
But I want editors to be able to select a different access level than the default one, but I don’t want to give them the complete list of access levels as that can result in articles they cant’s see.
I can of course create categories for each access level but that would be to confusing and cumbersome.
I thought maybe it was possible to create a single select list with the necessary values and then copy that value to the articles Joomla native Access field, but I don’t see how to achieve this.
OK, I understand. I'm afraid that F2C just loads the field and the content comes from Joomla. I know it's possible to write a F2C plugin that could be triggered on page load. I don't know if that could be used to "catch and alter" the access field values. A programmer with Joomla understanding would need to look into that. I will ask Julien if he has any ideas.
Please read the F2C documentation before asking questions! Thank you if you've done so
