Ticket #11174 (closed Bug: fixed)
Portal Members can't add portlets to their dashboard
|Reported by:||davidjb||Owned by:||garbas|
In Plone 4.0, regular users (eg Member role only) are not able to add portlets to their own dashboard because the "Add portlet" drop-down menus are empty, due to a lack of permissions. Manipulating (hiding, showing, deleting) default portlets works fine.
Assigning Member the "Portlets: Manage portlets" permission in the Security tab of the ZMI means the users can now see the listing of portlets in the drop-down and add portlets accordingly. That said, assigning this permission is not an option because it gives the users access to @@manage-portlets everywhere on the site.
Users should be able to add portlets to their own dashboards, as was the case in Plone 3.
If there's a use case for locking users out of adding portlets to their dashboard, then a separate permission should be added.
