On site X, visitors are required to enter a read password to access
the site. If they later click on an edit link, they get a nice
prompt for an edit password. But if they try to edit a page in the
Site group, my prompt logic falls on its face.
At the top of Site.AuthForm I have:
(:if !auth read:)'''$[A password is required to read this page]'''
(:if [ auth read and !auth edit ] :)'''$[An edit password is required]'''
(:if [ auth read and auth edit ] :)'''$[This request requires an
*If the action they are performing requires an admin password and
they only have a read password, they get a prompt for an edit password.
*The third line does not work as expected on the Site group, though
it does seem to work on other groups. On the Site group it
continuously displays "An edit password is required" when it actually
requires an admin password.
I think this could be easier if I could test for the kind of password
required for the requested action.
