limiting access to the news iview in rooms overview page

I'm trying to limit the news iview in the rooms so not every user will be able to create, delete, and modify the room news iview..

Any Idea as to how to do this? If I modify the ACL it does nothing.. and I'd like to specify it in the template somewhere, but I am at a loss as how to set this up..

any ideas, anyboby done it?

    Hi John,

    we did this in our rooms using a "unelegant" workaround:

    we have two pages containing the news-IView, one "author" page and one "consumer" page. The consumer-page-Iview has a Layout-Set with a collection renderer which doesnt have the command in the command-group for creating News.

    The Room-Role "Author" has access to the author-page and the others all see the "consumer" page.

    would be better if you could assign Layout-Sets depending on the room role, but that's (still) not possible.

    have fun,
