Subject: ACL and Deleting Entries
Hello,

In my acl.auth.php file I have it set up so only I am set to have permissions of 16 and all other users have permission of 8. The difference between 8 and 16 is supposedly that you can't "delete" if you have permission of 8.

But when I log in as a user with permission of 8, I can go to edit a topic, select all the text, hit backspace, and hit save and the topic gets removed. This would be considered "deleting" right? Shouldn't I supposedly be prohibited from doing this?

Thanks for any information you can give me!

Nope, the deletion permission only applies to media files. I'm pretty sure this is noted somewhere on the ACL page.

OK. Thanks. I managed to stick some code in that makes this apply to deleting articles as well.

Which makes no sense, because one can also just overwrite the existing text with some nonsense, which is the same as deleting but wouldn't trigger your deletion ACL. There is simply no need for a deletion ACL. Either you trust your users to edit pages or you don't.
