Ghostwriter v1.6.8

By Beau Smith
Posted September 19, 2007, in Administrative Interface.

Details

Ghostwriter is a Movable Type plugin that adds a control to change the author on Edit Entry and Edit Page screens.

Perfect when the person entering or editing content is not the user to be specified as the author.

Documentation

Editing Entry/Page Author

An Author select list will be displayed on the Edit Entry and Edit Page screens for users with:

  • a role (in the current blog) containing the privilege to Edit All Entries.
  • the System Administrator system permissions.

Valid authors can be selected from a dropdown list (as shown in this screenshot) or from a searchable, popup dialog.

Ghostwriter Screenshot

Authors Select Menu Population

There are two ways in which the Author select list is populated…

Note: The select menu will not appear if only one user matches the population method in use.

  • Populating by role is the recommended configuration. In the system plugin settings, the Author Role(s) field can be populated with a comma-separated list of roles. When this field contains any value, users with the specified roles on the current blog will be listed in the Author select list.

    To list all authors with the roles “Author” or “Editor” enter the following in the Author Role(s) field:

    Plugin Settings
Screenshot

    Note: Roles specified which do not exist will be ignored, but will cause the Author select list to be populated by role.

  • If no value is specified in the system plugins settings, the default population behavior is to list with users whom have a role (in the current blog) containing the privilege Create Entries and/or Edit All Entries… essentially any permission to post

If the entry/page is associated to a user who no longer has the ability to publish entries based upon one of the above methods, they will be listed and selected when viewing an entry they are the specified author of. If the author is changed and the form submitted, the user will no longer be listed unless they match one of the above methods.

The Author select list is available as either a dropdown list or a popup dialog. This selection is made from the system plugin Settings screen.

At the blog level, a default author can be selected for new entries.

Requirements

Note: an issue in MT4.01 doesn’t allow changing page authors, but fixed in MT4.1+.

To allow this to work correctly with 4.2, the fix I’m using looks like:

diff Ghostwriter.pl ~/rpm/SOURCES/www/cgi-bin/mt/plugins/Ghostwriter/. 81c81

83,84d82 permissions($app->param(‘blogid’)); canedit_assets){ 92d89

Let me try this again since I can’t edit my last comment:

 83,84d82
 permissions($app->param('blog_id'));

In MT 5, Ghostwriter 1.1 causes the author dropdown to appear at the very top of the HTML document. Would it be a quick fix to get this plugin updated for MT 5?

Charlie Gorichanaz on January 7, 2010, 8:05 p.m. Reply

I contacted the plugin developer and he provided this quick fix and says he’ll update it in the next few days:

Change line 138 of Ghostwriter.pl from

my $status = $template->getElementById(‘status’);

to

my $status = $template->getElementById(‘basename’);

Making that change placed the SELECT in the right place and it works now. It’s pushed off to the right, which I believe is because the generated HTML is:

<div id=”entryauthorname-field” class=”field field-left-label “>

but should be

<div id=”entryauthorname-field” class=”field field-top-label “>

The SELECT element is too wide, also, but these are much smaller problems than the functionality obviously.

Here’s a link to a screenshot of what it looks like: http://badgerherald.com/media/2010/01/ghostwriter-off.gif
