Binding Permissions to Modes and Dialogs

Movable Type makes it easy to control whether a logged in user can see or utilize a given page, action, or menu item. In those cases the Movable Type registry surfaces a permission property which can be set to a list of permissions that the user must have been granted in order to use the corresponding feature. Below is a list of all the permission names/keys Movable Type possesses. Use these when binding permissions within the registry.
