wondering…could this possibly just be included in core??
something like this would definitely bring txp to a new level. since the patch is already written and there are definitely a few ppl willing to test it while running multiple plugins alongside with no issues thus far, how would something like this make it into core?

I submitted a patch (inexpertly) a long while back, jamie did too (expertly). I think there were two reasons why it wasn’t taken on board, the first being that it changed the existing behaviour of txp – it changes an existing role, but it could equally well be applied to a new role; the second was that the user/author permissions were due for a more fundamental revision, which has as yet not happened. The latter route, when coupled with some more permissions (for instance to restrict image and file deleting to one’s images/files), may in fact be better in the long run.
running multiple plugins alongside with no issues thus far
Most of it just restricts what is displayed in the various tabs so has no effect on functionality of other plug-ins. The only real change to existing functions concerns the addition of file ownership (at present there is none whatsoever), which are analogue to those already implemented for author-handling of images.
At the time, there was not much response but in the last half year or so, the number of requests for this kind of setup have increased considerably…
TXP Builders – finely-crafted code, design and txp
just tested this on latest svn and seems to be working fine. since core doesn’t seem to be interested in this, i wonder if it could be rolled into a plugin of some sort?
Ibla and others, I repeat my later request :
Do you think it will be possible to show only article’s comments authors? Cause all comments are shown and are’nt filtered by author.
Sadly this can’t be made into a plugin, unless the plugin was actually a replacement for much of the txp admin interface. Ideally this would just be put in core — there’s really no reason it shouldn’t be, since it’s 100% backwards compatible with the right default permissions.
Unfortunately the lack of responsiveness from txp core on exactly these kinds of issues has led me away from txp the last few months and so I can’t provide much support or updates for this hack. :\
Nothing changed. It can be done as a plugin, but then you’re basically duplicating entire TXP core files (with minor modifications) and since you’d have to update the plugin each time you update TXP, it’s just as “easy” to just modify the TXP core files and keep track of what needs to be changed.
Josh, have you considered trying asv_auth_articles? Works for articles (only display your own ones),
files and images (files/images remain visible, but can’t be edited any more), but not for links. Edit2 Sorry, mixed it up with TXPs own behavior :]
Edit: Code is in the #6 post.
(What happened to your former user image? Always found it likeable spontaneous :)
