    Will the Resource Manager have permissions for staff to post new items and members being restricted to commenting and rating?

    That's all covered by the permissions.

    Does that permission apply separately to each categories as well?

    And, if we have pre-existing reviews, is there any way we can create new resource and import the reviews?

    I would assume permissions would be present category wise. I don't think there would be any built in way to import reviews. No way that can be "visioned" from a programming point of view, given that your existing reviews could be in any way imaginable.

    But importing them shouldn't be very hard. Take a look at which table the RM saves resources to and where the dependencies are and once could write an insert query with the data.

    I think the RM is stable enough to be released .... we need it :(

    Looking at the resource section, I can see how to discuss and I see reviews but I don't see how to add a review.

    It puzzled me as well. Apparently, you have to click on the start rating and it will popup a review box.

    I hope the released version of RM will have some changes so it has a "Write a Review" button and the review is an editor box like this reply box.

    That would be more useful for sites where people write substantial reviews of hundreds words. A popup box does not invite people to write long reviews.

    OK. Yes I think a rate and review button would make it clearer.

    Thanks Andy
