I'm facing a problem which, on the surface, seems similar to this thread...
Like that other thread, I've found that a specific user group is unable to access my plugin's pages because the plugin is lacking a
hasCpSection method. My plugin doesn't need a
hasCpSection method, because there really isn't a "section" for people to access. Specifically, I don't need a link in the side nav, because my plugin doesn't have a main index page.
However, my plugin does have other pages. These other pages are only accessible via special links. Those special links appear on Entry edit pages, as a custom Fieldtype. These random pages are what I want my client to have access to.
And that's where I'm unable to use the solution provided in the related thread. Because when I link directly to a template, those pages are restricted by default. There's no way for me to "allow anonymous". I would have to give the user group full admin access (which is crazy), and then circle back and restrict permissions on the page.
Any suggestions? This kinda feels like a bug to me, or perhaps a feature request.
