All users can post in private blogs

posts: 73

I'm currently having a major problem after upgrading to 1.9.5 from 1.8. Apparently, now all users can post to all the blogs, whether they are marked public or not. I ran the various database upgrade scripts, but it doesn't seem to have an effect. Users can post to whatever blogs they want by using the blog pull-down menu in the blog posting/editing screen.

Can anyone help here?

Thanks,

Matt

An update--

I notice that if the user clicks "list blogs," there are no options shown to post to the unauthorized blogs. This seems to be a problem with the "blog" dropdown bar in tiki-blog_post.php. Somehow it's bypassing the check and letting users post in whatever blogs they want...

By the way, I notice that this same bug appears on this site...You don't get the notepad to edit certain blogs when you do a blog list, but if you go to "post" and use the dropdown menu, you can post in whichever one you want.

This problem has already been noticed and a bug report filed.

Well, I just upgraded to 1.9.7., and this problem is still there. This really makes community blogging difficult! Has anyone worked out a hack or a fix for this that I can apply myself? It's really embarrassing to have to tell a class of students that they might accidentally post in another student's blog by accident.

Thanks,

Matt
