Subject [jira] [Closed] (ROL-922) Editor lock for multiuser blogs.
Date Sat, 24 Aug 2013 02:43:52 GMT


Glen Mazza closed ROL-922.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

I think the effort involved in trying to code locks accurately would not be worth the benefit.
 Distributed teams need to communicate properly to avoid overwrites from occurring.

>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Multi-Author
>    Affects Versions: 2.0

> The feature of a multi-author is nice but a problem that it creates is that if one author
is currently editing a post that has been previously saved there is no way for another author
who wishes to work on same entry to know it's being worked on.  This causes overwrite of eachothers
work.  Last one saved will be the one that is kept. 
> *If there was a checkout for editing feature this would solve the problem.  
> A simple way to implement this would be locking the entry row when someone goes into
edit mode on an entry.  Only thing to really watch for is that there is an expiration time
on the lock in case the editor exits without resaving the entry.  Also a change to the edit
entry comand so it realises an entry is locked and display a message to relay this fact.
