Page Manager Pro : Non-admins can't move pages

Win 2008, SQL 2008, Mojo 2.4.0.3, .net 4.5

Using the Page Manager Pro module I've found that non-admin users can not click-drag to move and re-arrange pages. You get an error message if tried.

Error:
You do not have permission to edit or move the page:

Here's a screenshot:

This user has all the editor roles applied except for "administrator".

Am I missing a permissions or user.config setting? I looked around but couldn't find anything.

Re: Page Manager Pro : Non-admins can't move pages

Are you sure the user is in "Roles That Can Create Child Pages" on the target parent page, or if trying to move a page to root the user must be in "Roles That Can Create Root Level Pages".

Re: Page Manager Pro : Non-admins can't move pages

Ok, think I have the exact bug nailed down here (think it's a bug anyway).

- I'm moving a page at the root elsewhere in the list.
- The user has all the default roles except admin
- The site permissions are all correct (based on your email above and how I know this to work)
       In this case the permission error shows up

If I go into the page "settings>security>roles that can edit" for the page that won't move and check the "content publishers" then the user can move the page.

I believe this to be a bug because this user is already a "content administrator" and that's a given edit role for the page already. Adding the "content publisher" role shouldn't be necessary.

 

I created an account on the demo site and can recreate the issue:
https://demo.mojoportal.com
Login: erictest@erictest.com
Pass: erictest

Now go and try to move the "MyPage", you'll get the permissions error. Check the user roles and page edit permissions to see what I'm talking about. (unless I'm crazy, which is entirely possible :)

Thanks,

Re: Page Manager Pro : Non-admins can't move pages

I've released an updated package of Page Manager Pro that fixes this. The package has versions for .NET 4.5, 4.0, and 3.5. Make sure you use the 4.0 one unless you also upgrade to the new release of mojoPortal that was released today. The new release of mojoPortal now targets .NET 4.5 framework, so there are corresponding updates to all of our add on products.

Thanks,

Joe
