Forum .LRN Q&A: Adding roles and groups to dotlrn_community

Hi all,

Regarding a new website using dotLRN, how should I go about adding roles (in addition to members and admin) such that these roles (e.g. friends family) will have different permission tables.

Would community-procs.tcl be the only one I need to edit or how do I change the default-roles for newly created communities?

In addition to this, I have planned for different objects within each package involved (forums, photo-album, news) to have read/write permissions associated with these different roles and be editable by the object creator (defaulting to the community.

What is the best way of going about designing this? Thanks for the help in advance.
