Permissions don't seem to work...
I would expect as an anon user to not see Folder 2 in the list let alone be able to open and comment on it.
Am I missing something?
Don't suppose the permissions menu item could be hidden then if thats not enabled, because it's gonna cause confusion.
How much of a perf hit is it...noticable? Should be be concerned?
Thank you for your feedback!
About the overhead - it is equal to the additional calculations that have to be made when joining two permissions related tables to the result set when querying multiple items. The performance impact is limited by the fact that the columns used for those joins are indexed. So there is a linear dependency between the number of existing rows and the total calculation time needed to perform a specific fetch operation.
In other words this functionality is optimized as much as possible but is disabled by default since view permissions are allowed for everyone by default. We are working on UI improvements to better communicate this dependency.
I created a new module, using Module Builder, and set an item to be view-able by administrators only. Added the widget to a page and logged out. Even with your additional setting turned on I still see this item.
@Steve Were you able to get your solution to work after enabling this setting?
on the problem with RadEditor - we were able to reproduce it, and it is logged for fixing.
Thanks a lot for taking the time to test and to provide such detailed explanation!
Let us know if you have more feedback,
Thank you for your feedback.
Regarding the issue with dynamic content items being visible on the frontend, we already have this fixed. It will be included in the official release of Sitefinity 7.3.
Kali and Ivan, thanks for getting this fixed!
I noticed a small problem with the RadEditor when creating a blog post with the Sitefinity 7.3 Beta. Below are the steps to repeat the issue. Also, I did this on Google Chrome 39.0.2171.71.
Please verify if you are also seeing this same issue. Thanks.
I'm attempting to test this via the NuGet repository and I'm getting the following error:
Unable to resolve dependency 'Telerik.DataAccess.Core (= 2014.3.1128.1)'.
Should this be working with NuGet?
