Download and Installation

Uses the ACL to display a banner describing the security classification of the current page.

So, for example, a page readable by the groups “foo”, “bar” and “baz” might display “Restricted: foo, bar, baz”. A page readable by everyone might say “Internal”.

The exact strings, and a set of group-name rewrites can be set through the configuration page.

I use this with LDAP-based authentication, but there is no reason for it to not work with any of the other authentication systems.


Very handy plugin, thanks! Two questions:

  • Does it require the ~~NOCACHE~~ option to stay current with changing ACLs?
  • The layout on the edit page is messed up (Firefox 3.6.10). The edit box is shifted to the right, almost off the screen. Is there a fix? I just commented out line 135 of action.php but I'm sure there's a more elegant solution:
            // if($ACT == 'edit') { return true; }  // disabled: bad alignment of edit box when enabled
