Feedback on HideInEditModePlugin

-- MeredithLesly - 25 Feb 2006

Thanks Meredith for maintaining this Plugin smile

-- PeterThoeny - 27 Feb 2006

This does not appear to be working on the lastest version TWiki.

Here is the error from /var/log/httpd/error_log:

[Wed Mar 15 16:09:28 2006] [error] [client xxxxxx] [Wed Mar 15 16:09:28 2006] view: Scalar value @_[3] better written as $_[3] at /var/www/html/twiki/lib/TWiki/Plugins/HideInEditModePlugin.pm line 94., referer: http://xxxxxx/twiki/bin/edit/Sandbox/HideInEditModeTest?t=1142460537

I have turned on debug, and all looks happy there. I have also tried to change value @_[3] to $_[3] as well as for 1 & 2 on lines 93 and 92. But I am nowhere close to a Perl person much less a programmer.

-- JeffStrahl - 15 Mar 2006

OK, I have the same problem like Jeff. My TWiki-Release ist 4.0.1 from Feb 2006.

  • Edit with other user specified in ALLOWTOPICHIDDEN.
  • This looks good, hidden areas not viewed
  • Now saving the changes
  • Hidden areas are lost now

I"m sorry. I wrote the plugin when I barely knew Perl, never managed to make it work, and then wound up not needing it. I shouldn't have uploaded it at all, I'm afraid.

I will create a new plugin and topic page if I can find the time to do it right. I'm sorry for any trouble it's caused you.

-- MeredithLesly - 29 May 2006

Meredith, please use the rename/delete privilege responsibly. I restored the HideInEditModePlugin topic from the Trash and marked it as obsolete.

-- PeterThoeny - 29 May 2006

I didn't know there was an obsolete option. Sorry.

-- MeredithLesly - 29 May 2006

The idea of this plugin ist excellent and good. If it worked correctly I can hide functions like %Action{}%, special %search{}%, etc for TWiki-Users in our secretary.

It's too bad about this Plugin to make it obsolate...

-- RudiRose - 30 May 2006

It's only possible to hide text at the top or the bottom, for architectural reasons, so I don't know if it would've done what you wanted anyway.

If I have time, i'll try to fix and build the plugin, since I know rather a lot more perl now.

-- MeredithLesly - 30 May 2006

This plugin would be very useful to hide WorkflowPlugin code from general users - they see all the code at the top and suddenly all our 'it's easy - just like writing an email' sales talk is forgotton!

-- EdMcDonagh - 09 Aug 2006

There are several other ways to accomplish your goal, besides making this plugin work.

The WorkflowPlugin has an example where all the plumbing is hidden by using topic-specific edit and view templates. You could also use MultiEditPlugin to create portions of the document that are not normally editable. You should look also into topic-specific settings, available at the "more..." screen.

-- ThomasWeigert - 09 Aug 2006

WorkflowPlugin + MakeCtrlTopicsListAddOn + HideInEditModePlugin = Workflow bliss
Thank you Meredith!!

I noticed the error statement in the log and made the suggested change to the .PM file - it is now attached to this topic!

Log statement:
