Unexpected change of behaviour in tracker field files

posts: 7861 Israel

Hello,

Now (tiki 15.x) when I set a tracker field file in a tracker it show two options.
One to "Upload" (like before) and one to "Browse".
Having all the gallery locked (no permission to browse for registered) still show a search input field.

I used this field several time by default including tiki 15.1 (Monday May 2, 2016 21:34:34 IDT-) REV 58512 and I've never seen that.
It is something to do with admin->trackers->Field settings->"Allow searching for existing files in the tracker files field" that is now turned on by default.

Is it for a purpose or a regression ?
I have several use case were registered (newbee) users have to upload a picture (picture profile, recipes) and I certainly don't like to have them confused or browsing in the files gallery.

If it is on purpose, then it back to previous default as the option to show exist (please) :-)

Hi Bernard

Yes, that doesn't sound right - there's a pref to disable that called fgal_tracker_existing_search (confusingly labelled "Allow searching for existing files in the tracker files field") - it's on the filegal admin panel => general settings tab. You probably also want to disable fgal_upload_from_source on the same panel.

Not brilliant but i guess was a cheap way of making it optional. Probably should be a pre-field options as well...

Hi Jonny,

I look at the prefs and both were here before mid-may but both disable by default on brand new install.

"fgal_tracker_existing_search" is now able by default and It is definitely changing the behaviour of the tracker field files.
Is there a reason not to revert it to the previous default ? (disable)

fgal_upload_from_source is and was disabled by default (no change) so all good on this one.


Bon appetit :-D

Hi Jonny and Bernard:

I had an usability issue for a client, in which anonymous needed to
upload files when registering (Resumé/CV-like), but they were not
supposed to browse the file gallery to have a look at the resumés/CV's
of other people. But that button to "Browse files" was always showing,
without checking for file gallery perms.

I've fixed that in r59121 (trunk) and backported to 15.x in r59122.

In case this offers a workaround for your Bsfez. Of course, this doesn't
solve the issue of whatever is the default, etc. (sorry can't handle
that myself)

HTH
