#52 God permissions takes ownership on any edited articles

admin (43)

When logged in with GOD perms, editing and saving an article transfers ownership (storyAdmin.php3) of this edited article to the logged user instead of remembering its original author.
This makes validation/moderation a bit funny for the other authors with a smaller seclev (they can only see their own articles).
Possible solution : re-using the function at line 103 (search.php3->function getAuthorID) and the code starting at line 226 (search.php3->/* print out the authors select box */) to display author list in the storyAdmin.php3 if logged with god Perms so it is possible to take ownership as well as to delegate ownership on the edited article.

    This should have been fixed since 11/15 (Story.class version 1.42). If anyone is still having problems, report the Story.class version.

    Sounds like this is fixed to me (in rc-3 you have the option to reassign ownership to an article when editing it with master perms)

    I'm closing this bug.
