Question

How can I grant write access for a particular topic for all registered users as well as for none-authenticated users?
I'd like implement a kind of guestbook by using the comment plugin.
This guestbook topic should be writeable for all users regardless whether they are authenticated or not.

  • Set DENYTOPICCHANGE =

does not work for not-authenticated users, but for all authenticated users. (According to the documentation this shouldn't be used anymore)

  • Set ALLOWTOPICCHANGE = TWikiGuest

does not work not-authenticated users and registered users. I obviously need a mechanism similar to the registration process, where TWikiGuests become to TWikiRegistrationAgent. This TWikiRegistrationAgent is allowed to the TWikiUsers topic.

Is there another way to provide write access to not-registered/not-authenticated users for a dedicated topic?

Thanks in advance.

Harry

Not an answer, but I escaped the access control setting examples so that people can comment.
