What is it

This little Plugin is useful for wikis with several access levels. Users with privileges for subnamespaces don't see the “Access denied” page after login, but are redirected to a “welcome” page (conf['initpage']), which can be set in configurations.

Download and Installation

Download and install the plugin using the Plugin Manager using the following URL. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

tar gz:
showinitpage-2010-04-08.tgz

zip:
showinitpage-2010-04-08.zip

Usage

Install the plugin and SET A DESTINATION FOR REDIRECTION in the configuration section for this plugin

Caution: Don't redirect to a page where a user doesn't have read privileges! This leads to a nice ;-) loop, as the plugin triggers a redirect on the attempt of a user to access a page he/she has no read-access for…

Solution: (only solution) the initpage must be a page ALL potential users have read privileges. So first thing to do is: set the 'initpageurl' value in the config-section for this plugin to something meaningful before logging out.

Gracias, M.Howard did an important modification. Such that search requests by users without top-level permissions are no longer wrongly redirected to initpageurl.

We added support to redirect only the startpage (any other namespaces will show Access denied) and cleaned up the code. If anyone is interested: http://subversion.fem.tu-ilmenau.de/websvn/wsvn/dokuwiki/showinitpage/ . Comments are welcome… (mape2k)
