I didn't get this problem, but I just finished reading the PTK source
Alter lib/python/Products/PTKBase/PortalCatalog.py, line 14, to read:
change line 47 to
kw['allowedRolesAndUsers'] = list(user.getRoles()) + \
kw['_allowedRolesAndUsers'] = list(user.getRoles()) + \
The other related line is in
lib/python/Products/PTKBase/PortalContent.py, line 45:
def _allowedRolesAndUsers(self, permission='View'):
Return a list of roles and users with View permission.
Used by PortalCatalog to filter out items you're not allowed to
you'll also need to change this method name to remove the underscore.
Watch out, though -- I have no idea what these changes do to the
security of your PTK site!
