page permissions

posts: 1

Hi all,
I want one user group "users" to have the permissions to edit one single page in our wiki (we are using version 1.8). I set the permissions for this page as follows:
Anonymous: tiki_p_view and tiki_p_wiki_view_attachments
users: tiki_p_edit, tiki_p_upload_picture and tiki_p_wiki_attach_files

But users from the users group can only edit the page but can not upload pictures or attachments. Is this a conflict with global permissions?

I tested the same thing ... at least I think in 1.8.
THe attachment is working. So perhaps there is a conflict with global permissions

Is anything holding you back from giving the group "users" the tiki_p_view and tiki_p_wiki_view_attachments permissions, in addition to the three permissions you mentioned ? I don't think it's a problem with two user groups having any of the permissions...

Your page permissions would look something like:

Anonymous tiki_p_view
Anonymous tiki_p_wiki_view_attachments
users tiki_p_view
users tiki_p_wiki_view_attachments
users tiki_p_edit

Check that you have these 2 sets of options checked in "Admin>Wiki" (settings):

Wiki attachments
Wiki attachments: v
Use database to store files:
Use a directory to store files: Path:
Change preferences

You need to have selected either "Use database to store files", or "Use a directory to store files"(with a valid local path from the server, with adequate writing permissions from the web server)
