Bug #23655 Bug Fixed

When member group can’t “View/Send cached email”, menu item still appears

Version: 4.3.1 Reporter: Hop Studios

User is in a member group that cannot View/Send cached email, but can see the Communicate page. The “Sent” menu option appears, and when clicked tells the user:

Error: You are not allowed to view the email cache.

I would think that this menu item should disappear when not permitted. But is it a bug? Hmmmm.

  • Definitely a bug, we really shouldn’t let you get on a disallowed page via navigation.

    I’ve got it fixed up for the next release- ‘sent’ only shows if they have permission to resend cached emails, consistent with the permission check on that section.

    There’s a code patch in ‘solution’ as well.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    $sidebar->addHeader(lang('communicate'), ee('CP/URL')->make('utilities/communicate'))
          ->addBasicList()
           ->addItem(lang('sent'), ee('CP/URL')->make('utilities/communicate/sent'));

    change to

    $left_nav = $sidebar->addHeader(lang('communicate'), ee('CP/URL')->make('utilities/communicate'));
    
          if (ee()->cp->allowed_group('can_send_cached_email'))
