Subject: RE: What security settings does ZWiki need
Date: Tue, 8 Jan 2002 11:23:28 -0500

I tried testing this and seems to work.

Anonymous can "Append to ZWiki Pages", but NOT "Change ZWiki Pages" IMHO - this should read "Add a Comment" and "Edit this Page" to match the UI.

And the flow is not very user Friendly. The workflow is reversed. Anon users should either, - not see the "edit this page" option, but see a login page. - or be required to log-in before accessing the "editform" DTML_Method.

Currently, all users can select "edit this page", make changes to the page...only to get a log-in prompt after they have tried to edit. Canceling the prompt of course creates errors. Very unfriendly.

HTH, Trevor

 conditionally visible; viewing editform requires edit permission;
