Administration manual

This is a small introductory manual to teach you about how to use e-cidadania without messing everything up :).

Administration panel


Restricting user registration


This behaviour will change on e-cidadania 0.2

e-cidadania has a basic automated registration system that the administrator can activate or deactivate at his own will. By default, e-cidadania comes with registrarion activated, but if for some reason the administrator wants to block that registration system (passing to manual mode) he just has toactivate when he considers removing the comment symbol (sharp).


# url(r'^register/$', register, name='signup'),

If the platform is well set up, the registration system should take care of everything.


Permissions in e-cidadania are inherited directly from the django auth system. This way we have group based permissions and user based permissions.


e-cidadania 0.2 will have a row-level permission system.

There are four basic permissions:

Depending on the moderation grade that you have been given, you can add simple content or more complex. The highest moderation levels have a very high detail grade when adding content.
The editing task is similar to creation, it will return a formulary with the current data based on your permission level.
Usually in forums a moderator can delete user entries. In e-cidadania that is not the objective. User generated content must be preserved, it only can be deleted by platform administrators.
Move note
This permission is for the debate system. IT allows or restricts the user capability of moving notes across the debate. The notes moving task is reserved for the space administrators.



Groups are a massive way to give permissions to people. In this version groups will be a way to group people inside the spaces, except that for any reason you’ll have to give them another permission for a specific task.

Frequent errors

The most frequest errors are due to the server or a bad administrator management in the groups/permission case.
