Forum Question - rev 16.10

24 February 2018, 6:22


How is it possible for members of a group with Member access have edit and delete access in forum within that group? Is it because I have admin access even though I am masquerading as a member?

Also one of the administrators of the group is not receiving emails from the forum? But did receive posts from previous forums in past semesters.

I keep having on and off issues with forum post notifications and never understand why it is happening. Can you help?

Thank you,

Hi Melinda

Thank you for your question - this turns out to be a bug and I've filed a bug report for it

And created a patch to fix the problem

Hello Robert,

Thank you for your response.

My technical support  would like to know if you have an estimated time on how long it would take to get this bug patch into a released revision? We usually wait for bug fixes to be part of a released reversion so the patches have gone through the complete testing process.

Thank you,

Hello Melinda,

Since the fix is already in code review at your technical team can apply it to a testing environment and check that it works to speed up the review process. It would then go into the next minor point release. We have not yet set a date for it, but would come very latest in the first 2 weeks of April. If you want to fix the issue on your instance before then, you can deploy the finalized patch to your instance of Mahara.
