The owner extension allows you to change the owner of a content object. This extension uses the content browser to let the user choose the new owner.


The extension adds a menu "Change owner" to the context sensitive popup menu in the admin interface. Read for more information about the usage of this menu.

You can also add a button for changing the owner to your own templates. In a view template for a node, you can put the following code:

{def $currentUser=fetch('user','current_user') $canChangeOwner=fetch( 'user', 'has_access_to', hash( 'module', 'owner', 'function', 'all') )}

{if $canChangeOwner}

{/if} {undef $canChangeOwner $currentUser}

Additionally, you can specify where the content browser has to start when browsing for a new owner. The following code makes the content browser start at the parent node of the current owner's main node.

{def $currentOwner=$node.object.owner $currentOwnerGroup=$currentOwner.main_node.parent $currentUser=fetch('user','current_user') $canChangeOwner=fetch( 'user', 'has_access_to', hash( 'module', 'owner', 'function', 'all') )}

{if $canChangeOwner}

{/if} {undef $canChangeOwner $currentUser $currentOwnerGroup $currentOwner}
