WB 2.8.2 RC5 News: Post and Group-ID
« on: May 03, 2011, 01:11:35 PM »
Hi,

I've noticed a strange behavior regarding the post-id and group-id of news entries (news module 3.5). In former versions, one could see the ID by pointing of the edit link of a news post or group.

In 2.8.2 the ID is not displayed clearly anymore but obvoiusly encoded. Instead of
Code: [Select]
http://www.domain.foo/modules/news/modify_post.php?page_id=6&section_id=35&post_id=2
there now occurs
Code: [Select]
http://www.domain.foo/modules/news/modify_post.php?page_id=6&section_id=35&post_id=605ab71eb280f003
So this is a pitty, because I wanted to use the anynews module for displaying only selected news on the start page generating a teaser image by the post-ID. I think the IDs of posts and groups should be displayed in the backend...

Thats one of the new security features ...  :|

But as far as i know the encoding only happens whith the form /edit link.
(This is to stop someone from editing a news article he may not edit .)

So anynews should be fully functional.

Ich würde gern die Welt verändern, doch Gott gibt mir den Quellcode nicht...
