$node.can_create not working

Monday 11 March 2013 11:19:21 am - 3 replies

I have defined a role in which a certain class does not have the permission to create, but still when I login to the website with the specified user role. The property $node.can_create returns true, although the permissions to create are not given.

Any idea(s)?

Thanks for any help in advance.

See if you get a different result with view caching and template block cache turned on vs turned off. It's possible you've cached an old result and will need to adjust how the cache is being handled or the permission is being checked.

There is no cache activated for this project.

I solved it the following way
{def $classesInstantiate=fetch('content', 'can_instantiate_class_list')}

{if contains_classname($classesInstantiate, 'issue')}

create link mark up comes here


My template operator looks like this
 * @param $classes
 * @param $classname
 * @return bool
private function containsClassName($classes, $classname)
    foreach($classes as $class) {
    if($class->attribute( 'identifier' ) === $classname)
        return true;
    return false;
