Give "Web page editor" admins access to new child pages by default
I have several admins who have restricted editing access to one menu's worth of web pages including all the sub-pages under that menu. However, when I add new subpages, their admin editing privileges are not updated to include the new pages and I get emails from them asking why they can't see the new pages. I then need to go to each person's contact card, edit their privileges, uncheck the top-level menu pages and re-check it to include the new subpages. It's a pain and frustrating for the editors who can't work when they're ready to work.
I'd like it if these folks automatically gained editing access when new subpages are created under a menu for which they have editing access.
I agree, I asked one of my colleagues to look at this. From what I remember, the system was designed to work as requested (inheriting access rights).
Kim is asking for a properly implemented parent/child relationship for pages: the child inherits the properties of its parent. This request sounds more like a bug report than a new design feature.

Excellent idea Kim! Would be helpful to gain direct editing access especially when under a time crunch to get info up on the web!
Great suggestion. Makes a lot of sense.
