DNN Edit Skin Text SKO - 01.03.00

Released: 10 January 2018

Release notes:

This release is a Security Fix.

Fixed : 1

  • Registered users can edit Texts

    In some circumstances "Registered Users" were able to edit texts.
    This was caused by the DNN API sometimes returning "Edit State" for the Control Panel even for a User without edit rights.
    By adding an extra check, this was fixed.
