Squishdot and users / permissions
Squishdot Posted by Ragnar Beer on Wednesday December 13, 01:14PM, 2000
from the a bit less desperate newbies dept.
I think I was wrong with my formulation of the non-root Squishdot problem. It seems that in my case root Squishdot sites that I created worked better than the non-root ones, because I didn't go far enough in testing then, i.e. up to setting permissions and adding a user. Here is what I did to create the same errors in a root Squishdot site:

I created a Squishdot (0.7.2) site "test" under Zope (2.2.2) root (not moderated, no expiration, Fancy demo, 30 postings).

I went to mydomain/test, clicked on the first messages' "Read More..." and then in the right bar on "Also by Butch Landingin". Everything ok.

I went to root folder's security tab and added a role "User" without any permissions. I went to test's security tab and disabled all the "Acquire permission settings?" buttons and then allowed User to "Access contents information", "Add Postings", "Query TinyTable data" and "View". No permissions for the anonymous user. Then in root folder's acl_users I created a new user "testuser" with the role "User".

I went to mydomain/test, clicked on the first messages' "Read More..." and then in the right bar on "Also by Butch Landingin". KeyError: icon.

In test's security tab I gave the anonymous user permission to "access contents information" and repeated the search operation ("Also by..."). KeyError: thread_path.

In test's security tab I gave the anonymous user permission to "view" and repeated the search operation. Everything ok.

So it seems that everything works well for the anonymous user only. The problem is that I can't give any permissions to the anonymous user on this Squishdot site. What can I do?

    Force auth. There is a Zope product that will force authentication even for anonymous users. so only registered users have access, but their permissions will remain. Good thing.

    Good luck!

    Can't reproduce :-(

    Well,

    On both Zope 2.2.4 and 2.2.5b1, I don't get the thread_path error at the point you mention.

    Perhaps you could try these Zoep versions and see if it makes a difference.

    If not, maybe you could mail me a zexp so I can try and reproduce it?

    cheers,

    Chris

    We had on one of our sites the same problem. First we had it installed on Zope 2.2.0, but upgraded to the newer versions (2.2.2, 2.2.4, 2.2.5).

    On this site exist one Anonymous Squishdot and one closed, the error came up in booth installations. Different folder ( / or /foldername )didn't solve the problem.

    The chaotic thing is, that is doesn't appear always. It looks like there is no rule on which it depends.
    May be it is the same as Bug 129807 on Sourceforge called: "search method is chaotic.
    https://sourceforge.net/bugs/?func=detailbug&bug_id=129807&group_id=1083

    Upgrading to the newest versions(0.7.3)didn't help. Re-Catalog dies with __camp__ error.

    https://sourceforge.net/bugs/?func=detailbug&bug_id=127278&group_id=1083

    I've put the traceback in the attachment.

    Hope it would help to solve this prob.

      Hmmm... are you still having these problems?

      Give Zope 2.3.1b1 and Squishdot from CVS a go and let me know.

      cheers,

      Chris
