staff1 can't add a forum topic

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

I logged in as staff1 and went here:

  http://localhost:6543/offices/baltimore/forums/baltimore-news/add_forum_topic.html

...and got forbidden. I'm not sure why. Here is the ZCML for that view:

  <view
    for="karl.content.interfaces.IForum"
    view=".forum.add_forum_topic_view"
    name="add_forum_topic.html"
    permission="create"
  />

We need the security workflow to allow staff to add forum topics and comments inside an intranet. Other content is closely controlled inside an intranet.

Changed in karl3:
assignee: nobody → shane-hathawaymix
importance: Undecided → Low
milestone: none → m11

Did this work before? It's happening because all intranet security is inherited from /offices, where members of group.KarlStaff only have the 'view' and 'comment' permissions.

Now I guess group.KarlStaff should have the 'edit', 'create', 'delete', and 'moderate' permissions, but where? For all forums?

Changed in karl3:
status: New → In Progress

I believe it was working before, yes.

As a note, staff can create content, but like a blog in a community,
should not be able to edit each other's content. Only admin and
creator can edit.
