Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (JS2-449) User Specific Preferences
Date Mon, 11 Dec 2006 18:18:05 GMT
You could set the preferences in the PSML as read-only. That way, the
user can't alter them and they will be identical for all users.

The old way just didn't make any sense.  In the old way, if user A
changes a preference, it would then be changed for all users.

for RSS portlets etc.

Furthermore there is always a preference node for the guest user created by just viewing the
page and this overrides always the "no-principal" prefs (besides that one can't graphically
edit "no-principal" prefs).

saved per portlet definition, not per entity.
