Frontend editing working only when logged in.

hi,

I'm only allowed to front-edit (Method D, modal comes up) when I'm logged in.
Default guest user (role ID 37) without login will not work while a logged in user with role 37 assigned will work (and superuser ofc).
Does frontend editing require a 'real' login?

All template access rules are assigned and checked.

Any hints what i might be missing?

thanks

it's an event registration site where people with an ticket id (which they enter once) can confirm their status and choose a couple details.

So are you trying to use FrontendEditing as some kind of form-replacement?

Don't know if there are any limitations in the number of currently logged in users or any performance issues...

Just curious. How would permission to edit a set of pages even without login compromise the security of the remaining site?

Yes, all doable via forms. The frontedit modal dialog is just a very comfortable and flexible way. 🙂

thanks!

This question is kind of a joke, right?

True! But its purpose is editing page content for logged-in users (editors with knowledge about the system and the process) and not taking event registrations from people that don't know what they do there.
