Hi!
Post can be edited only by poster or admins. I need to make group work a few posts. You can not do that in the News module or maybe I missed something? Or maybe is there a similar module that does this?

If you create a group "Editors", you can give them "Module Admin rights", and they should be able to edit the news article.

But I don't think that you'll be able to do so at the "topic level".

If I'm not mistaken, Publisher offers moderator option at the "topic level", so it might be possible there, but you would need to test it.

I think, it would be a good feature to add in a future releases of our content modules.

im sure "that editor group" (that have access to approve) in the news module can approve articles in selected topics and subtopics.

but im not sure that if they can edit published articles.

If they have "Module Admin rights", then they can edit the news articles.

Thanks for answers!

Adding module admin rights is not an option for some users.

It seems that Publisher fits my requirements. There I can set for a group of users permissions to moderate categories. But I had received access denied message when I tried edit someone else post in that category until I checked the "User article edit? Allow users to edit their own articles?" option in preferences. This description makes confused. But it works.

But I noticed that the option "Auto approve submitted articles?" does not work (and so all new post has to be approved by admin). I need to check it deeper, but that's another topic I think.
