Foswiki on GitHub is open for business! Next release meeting: Monday October 13, 1300Z
this is an enhancement request.

I want a variation on ALLOWTOPICCHANGE that permits changes via COMMENTPLUGIN or EDIITTABLEPLUGIN (as examples) but NOT through the Edit link.

That is, I want to disable http://.../~twiki/cgi-bin/edit/ and allow only editss thaat come thhrough buttons on the /.../view/... screen.


I would be against hacking something like this into the core.

But natually it can be added to an extension.

Any decision has to be through the release meeting process as this is a very significant spec change.

Kenneth is right, this is a plugin enhancement and should not impact the core.

From an implementation perspective this isn't quite as simple as it sounds, as access rights are checked by the Store every time a topic is saved. The plugin would have to find a way round this constraint.

Another recent request has been for a "moderated comment", where a comment can be saved to a "safe" area and subsequently moved (perhaps by another "COMMENT") into a final destination by a moderator. I think this could be done without any code changes. I might feel motivated to address the permissions problem if someone could prove me right/wrong on this....
