Hi:

I'm not sure if this is a bug, or somethign intentional, but on my site (and a few friends sites) story admin's don't have the privaledges to edit a story, not even their own. It would be awesome and cool if they could. Is there a simple hack to do this without giving story admin's full "root" privs?

Thanks

Theo

I just discoved that mine doesn't work either. Not even when the topic permission is given.

Do you have HTMLArea installed? I am wondering if that caused the problem.

It must be caused by some recent updates because it was working before.

Since you said so, I reset the topic's permission, which was previously already given permission to the Story Admin. In other words, I just pressed 'save' to resave the setting. Now it is working.

I suspect the upgrade to SR2 affected this setting.

You need to set the user as a story admin. Also, in the topic admin screen you need to set the topic you want them to be able to post/edit as group edit rights. You have to do this for each topic or they won't be able to edit their stories in that particular topic.

I have this problem as well. Seting the topic rights to group edit fixed it, but I don't like having to do this. Is this a bug? I am using gl 1.3.9

It's not a bug. Check out this FAQ entry for details.

After more experimenting I have determined that the story admin must also be a topic admin as well. Also, the topic must be set to group edit. If not the story admin gets an error saying they tried to access a story they don't have access rights to. Even though they created the story.
