"Fancy" site install hassle
Squishdot Posted by Jean Jordaan on Tuesday August 08, 04:00PM, 2000
from the gnashing-my-teeth dept.
When I create a new "fancy" site using Squishdot 0-4-1, I need to login as manager in order to see it! This is braindamaged. The best solution I could find (with a little help from a friend) was to give 'index_html' a manager proxy role. It needs the manager role to access the TinyTables. Anyone else get this?

    A similar thing happens to me. If I post an article Squishdor suddenly asks for an username and a passwort. As I couldnt log in with the usual ZOPE admin account, I get the attached error message. If you delete the posted article you could access it again. But, what is a squishdot site without articles :-)

    cheers

    That's one way of doing it, the other is to give the 'Query TinyTable Data' permission to the Anonymous role.


    Access to the contents of TinyTables is protected by a permission, which by default is only given to Managers


    This is not 'braindamaged', it is called 'security' ;-)

      Fair enough :)

      But it is a mite surprising when the default Squishdot install limits your news site to a readership of one, namely yourself ;>

      (presuming that you're the only manager).

      (For the record: Zope 2.1.6; Squishdot 0.4.1).

        The problem isn't with Squishdot's defaults, it's TinyTable's

        TinyTable defaults to only allowing managers to query it. That's the problem, but since TinyTables is a seperate product there's not a lot I can do to change it :S

        Who knows, maybe there's good reasons why it's like it is :S

          Yes, I realise it's Tiny Tables which caused my permissions trouble, but the issue might be raised in Squishdot's installation notes .. if it is, I beg forgiveness.

          Squishdot might also address it by giving index_html the 'manager' proxy role by default, but I wouldn't know whether that causes security concerns.

            I'll make sure it's documented in the install instructions...

    What seems strange is that squishdot does not yet work with Zope 2.2 yet neither companys seem to provide an earlier version -- with the exception of the RPM packages.

    I found zope 2.1.6 by doing a search on northernlight -- it is on Zope's site, but there are no links to it on Zope.org or Squishdot.org that might make things easier for me. Anyways this Squishdot/Zope application rocks!

      Well, with any luck, Squishdot will work with Zope 2.2 in the not too distant future :-)

      Glad you like it :-)

      Chris
