Flag per node

Drupal Modules - Sat, 13/02/2016 - 12:06am

The Flag per Node module provides a flexible way to control which flags are visible on which nodes. Flag per Node can define custom access for individual pieces of content with a default setting per content type. The code is heavily inspired by the Content Access module, but is specifically applied to flags.

You will most likely only require this module if you want to control access to specific individual nodes. Access per content type is already part of flag and does not require this module.
