Description Nigel Jones 2008-05-18 01:50:05 UTC
I've noticed today that userCanRead and userCan('read') seem to be providing different results, in particular in Special:Search...

r21402 was committed to patch Bug #8825, but it appears my installation with the Lockdown extension does not have the desired effect.

I proceeded to change line 327 of includes/SpecialSearch.php from:
 if (!$t->userCanRead()) {
 if (!$t->userCanRead() || !$t->userCan( 'read' )) {
which has seemed to solve the problem and provide the desired results.

Any thoughts?

See line 1420, there is a shortcircuit check added for perfomance.

Actually, I'm a bit of a twit, now I look, yes there is the shortcircuit, and it's fixed in SVN...

Sorry all.
