ToDo/Wish List

  • Have you thought about generalizing this behaviour with your plugin to any group and not just users with read only right? As I understand your plugin, it goes one step further than the core code which can forbid an action for all user (except admins) through the $conf['disableactions'] setting. What could be great is a way to tell group1 doesn't get action1 and group2 doesn't get action2,action3. What do you think? — bug 2012/08/27 17:27
    • Sorry. No plans (=time) for that. But feel free to take the code and extend it :-)oiv 2012/11/16 10:09

Compatibility issues

  • Does not work for me with DokuWiki 2020-07-29 “Hogfather” :-(
  • Results in a Blank Page “Fatal error: Declaration of action_plugin_denyactions::register(Doku_Event_Handler &$controller) must be compatible with dokuwiki\Extension\ActionPlugin::register(Doku_Event_Handler $controller) […]”
  • Work around: Disable denyactions plugin by adding “$plugins['denyactions'] = 0;” to your /conf/plugins.local.php — fisch 2020-08-08 09:02
  • Update: Here is the hot fix you can try to solve - it worked for me (thanks to retroman):
  • Fix for: PHP Warning: Undefined variable $ID in ../lib/plugins/denyactions/action/rev.php on line 24
    • Change
      function handle_start(Doku_Event $event, $param) {
              global $INFO;
              global $lang;
    • To
      function handle_start(Doku_Event $event, $param) {
      	global $ID;
              global $INFO;
              global $lang;
