RFE: Protect content specs from manual editing
Last modified: 2014-10-19 19:01:55 EDT
Description of problem:
At the moment users can edit content specs in the web editor with no validation. This results in broken content specs. It's especially a problem for new users, because they rightly expect that the system would not allow them to do something that would break their stuff without warning them.
if (topic.isContentSpec()) makeEditorReadOnly();
If you wanted to make it user friendly, you could put a link to the death star content spec editor, a GUI wrapper for the content spec processor, while you are waiting for your own web-based solution. Otherwise, a notice telling them to use the csprocessor to edit the spec (please- no modal dialogs! :-) would be good.
Closing this as won't fix since we will be moving to the new editor very shortly. If anyone tries to edit an old content spec topic in the editor then they will be prompted to use the new editor.
