Subject Re: edit PagePermission implies createPages WikiPermission?
Date Thu, 14 Jan 2010 16:11:52 GMT
Still the same.

I have set log4j level to debug. After I disable the "edit"
PagePermission, when I try to create a new page, I can see in the log
a line saying that

User has no access - forbidden
"wikiname:NewPage", "edit"))

When does jspwiki test the "edit" PagePermission instead of the
"createPages" WikiPermission?

If I enable the "edit" PagePermssion, interestingly, no information is
given in the log saying about the "edit" permission or "createpages"
