Allowing LDAP users to comment on pages that have "commenting" turned on.

If your ok with anyone on campus commenting on an item, you need to set permissions up correctly on the folder that contains the object that has "commenting" turned on. 

You will need to have the following;

  1. manager permissions (so you can modify the zmi)
  2. a page that has comments turned on

Turn On CommentingTurn on commenting on your page

  1. Login
  2. Browse to the page you want commenting turned on
  3. Choose the "edit" tab
  4. Choose "setting"
  5. Choose "enable commenting"


Setting Permissions

Reply To PermissionsYou should now see that you can add comments to your object but non registered LDAP users will not yet be able to comment. So now we need to set the permissions.

  1. Browse to the folder that contains your object that has commenting turned on.
  2. Append /Manage to the end of the URL.. so your URL should look something like
  3. Choose the "security" tab
  4. In the ZMI look for the entry "reply to item"
  5. Make sure that "acquire" is checked AND check the checkbox under "Authenticated" in the "replay to item" row.

Note. Since we modified the permissions on the folder and not directly on the object any new item you add will inherit those permissions from its folder.
