Support read restriction (userCanRead). Group permission are checked, but not restrictions.

Comment 3 Aaron Schulz 2009-01-24 05:46:09 UTC
Read restrictions not support. Use the 'userCan' hook at your own risk though.
Comment 4 MZMcBride 2009-01-24 06:47:17 UTC
Changed resolution to LATER. I don't see any indication that this is ruled out absolutely in the future (and in fact, steps have been taken toward greater flexibility regarding per-user action restrictions).

Patch for mw 1.15.1
Comment 8 Roan Kattouw 2009-12-10 10:08:57 UTC
Please submit patches against trunk. Patches against release versions such as 1.15.1 are useless because the many differences between 1.15.1 and trunk will cause the patch to not apply cleanly.

Workaround using "userCan" hook (mw 1.16.0)
Comment 10 Andre Klapper 2012-12-12 13:34:02 UTC
[Removing RESOLVED LATER as discussed in .
Reopening and setting priority to "Lowest".
For future reference, please use either RESOLVED WONTFIX (for issues that will
not be fixed), or simply set lowest priority. Thanks a lot!]

I'm not sure what this was about seven years ago, but we definitely have some 'read' restriction support these days, see .
