TagMeCreateNewTag topic requires ALLOWTOPICCHANGE
Just installed newest TagMePlugin
- TagMePlugin (2.1.0, $Rev: 14889 (2012-05-23)
- JQueryPlugin (4.33, $Rev: 14572 (2012-04-06)
- Foswiki-1.1.5, Tue, 10 Apr 2012, build 14595, Plugin API version 2.2
Working with web and group based ACLs: Only AdminGroup
has access to the System web.
Added to SitePreferences
* Set TAGMEPLUGIN_ALLOW_TAG_CHANGE = %USERSWEB%.CustomGroup, %USERSWEB%.AdminGroup
Everything worked fine, including adding, renaming and delete of tags. But users of the CustomGroup can't create new tags.
Error message (of viewauth I guess): MatthiasBrix
cannot add new tags (newline) Return to System
I found following workaround
: Grant topic change privileges to normal user to TagMeCreateNewTag
Adding to TopicPreferences
* Set ALLOWTOPICCHANGE = %USERSWEB%.CustomGroup, %USERSWEB%.AdminGroup
Did I missed something in the documentation or is it a bug?

This is a bug. The documentation for TagMePlugin
---++++ Create new tags

whereas the latest version of TagMePlugin
switched from checking that the user is logged (any user other than WikiGuest
) to checking whether he has CHANGE permissions for the System web (normally restricted to AdminGroup
