Description

With the 1.10b (and latest svn changes) it is meant for admins to be able to change the creator of the forums.

Unfortunately, all users with permission to create blogs, can now create blogs for any other user - even if they can not post to them.

It seems that the latest file templates/tiki-edit_blog.tpl and .php requires that a value for the creator is passed back from the field Creator. Thus, the field has to be present with a valid content.

Solution

I'm sure there is an easier way of doing this but here is a solution:

In the file templates/tiki-edit_blog.tpl
Replace:
<tr class="editblogform"><td>Creator{/tr}</td><td><select name="creator">
{foreach from=$users key=userId item=u}
<option value="{$u|escape}"{if $u eq $creator} selected="selected"{/if}>{$u}</option>
{/foreach}
</select></td></tr>

with:
<tr class="editblogform"><td>Creator{/tr}</td>
{if $tiki_p_admin eq 'y' or $tiki_p_blog_admin eq 'y'}
<td><select name="creator">
{foreach from=$users key=userId item=u}
<option value="{$u|escape}"{if $u eq $creator} selected="selected"{/if}>{$u}</option>
{/foreach}
</select> </td>
{else}
<td>{$user}</td>
{/if}
</tr>

This solution still shows the menu if the user has admin privs but if the user does not have admin privs, the user name will simply show up as static text next to Creator.

The solution works for previews as well.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
