Limit classes that can be created in a subtree

We're trying to build a site that allows the user to add content from the front end, but each folder should contain a certain set of classes only. How do we go about enforcing this? I've had a look at the different data types, but none seem to allow this.

Have a look at the role module - in the admin interface under user tab. This lets you specify what users can and cannot do.

Hi James,

Ok, I didn't think of using the roles and sections. That could work.

How do I conditionally add the "Add a new XXX" button depending on the role rights? I don't want to hard code it into the section template, as I'd like the admin to be able to define new classes on the fly.

Any help would be apreciated.

That's great but according to it's not going to honour the node settings. How am I going to get round this?
