When viewing a table as WikiGuest and then trying to edit a single cell, the log-in dialog gets displayed in this very table cell. Looks nasty. The modification gets saved, but the redirection after log-in is broken.

  • Maybe it would be best to hide all editing features if the current user doesn't have write permissions?!
  • Or instead of hiding, the invocation of a single-cell edit should rather forward the user to the log-in screen and afterwards send him back to the original topic for editing the cell.

Setting priority to "normal", but feel free to change it...

If the current user doesn't have CHANGE access to the topic, then none of the edit features are displayed. What rights does WikiGuest have to the topic?

-- CrawfordCurrie - 03 Jun 2011

Well, WikiGuest doesn't have editing rights, that's why a not logged-in user (WikiGuest) currently gets forwarded to the log-in dialog after he tried to edit a table field.

Changing of the topic I'm talking of is not allowed to WikiGuest. Trying to edit the topic results in the log-in dialog, as it should.

And yet, the edit features of the table are definitely visible for WikiGuest in my case, using the most recent EditRowPlugin.

Yeah, I see now that it's a special case for wikiguest. Well, there has to be some way to prompt with a login, and there's no clean way to redirect the page in an XHR callback that I can find, so there's no choice but to do the prompt in the cell. There is definitely a problem though when saving on.

Similar issue applies when moving rows from a non-0auth starting point.
