Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Need to automatically confer package write permission on subsite members
You don't say so, but I assume you have the package mounted under the subsite? If so, I believe your procedure above should grant direct write permission to the package and not the subsite. That is, step 2 should be: click permissions at the mounted package level.
I don't follow you.
If I go to http://mysite.com/admin/site-map/ then I see something like this:-
Main Site:/my_subsite/ URL Instance Name Package Type (-) my_subsite/ My Subsite ACS Subsite [ links 1 ] blah_1 Blah 1 Package A [ links 2 ] blah_2 Blah 2 Package B [ links 2 ] blah_3 Blah 3 Package C [ links 2 ]
Where [ links 1 ] is [ add folder | parameters | permissions | rename | delete ] and [ links 2 ] is [ add folder | unmount | parameters | permissions | rename | delete ]
What I did was to choose permissions in [ links 1 ], i.e. at the ACS Subsite level. To my mind this will control permissions at the subsite level and not at the level of a package mounted under the subsite, such as blah x.
