How can a user edit their own details

Monday 19 May 2003 5:03:52 pm - 5 replies

Selmah, please don't give any more issues please. blunk.gif Emoticon I am going to try again happy.gif Emoticon

I have users that have created users via 'signup' and not manually via a admin user. How can a user edit their own details? other than their password?

ok ok happy.gif Emoticon))

here is , try it :

{let thisuser=fetch('user','current_user')}
{section show=$thisuser.is_logged_in}
<h2> You need to <a href={concat("user/edit/",$thisuser.contentobject_id)|ezurl}>Edit</a> </h2>

Yep i had <a href="/content/edit/{$}">Edit my details</a>.

but the effect is the same.

This is the issue, as the user does not have edit rights to itself as it is created automatically it cannot change the details.

I think this will need to be a special routine from eZ...

That seems trivial,

I thought (out of memory) that you can specify the usergroup where these type of users belong. Just add a new rule to the role assigned to that user group which makes editing ("self"blunk.gif Emoticon possible.

Or am I missing something?

You see i thought that, but try it for generated users, the generating account for them is by default "administrator". As users do not generate themselves you cannot use 'self'.

Hi Tony,

I have the same problem and the only thing I could come up with is to change the code in /kernel/user/register.php to make the owner of the contentObject the new user.

I you find an other way, please tell me.
