while waiting for a new extension to be accepted I was playing a bit with the editing form.
I found out you can load the edit form for extensions published by other user accounts, which is pretty lame. I could find out this way details about extensions that will be published on Monday probably
So the latest published extension has id 1900. 1901 and 1902 are extensions published by me (below some more details).
And we have in queue 1903 - Photo Album/Gallery with Lightbox for Magento v1.4 (screenshot)
and 1904 - Custom address fields requirements (screenshot)
It’s not a big thingie, at least the save action deals with checking the user rights, and does not allow you to overwrite the information. OR NOT?!?
Now, back to my extensions:
I tried to publish that extension, I got a stupid error, and of course I searched in the forums, I found a guy who claimed it worked for him by changing the username, which I did but still didn’t work out.
I created a new account, I tried to upload again the extension, of course with the same error.
It was then that I tried to change the id, and i changed it with the id 1901, of my first pending extension, and it ALLOWS the new account to overwrite the info in the extension published by my first account.
Can anybody else reproduce this? Load this page and try to update the info.
And also maybe someone can help me with the error I’m getting. The publishing process lacks some usability.. it gives you a lousy error but does not tell you what caused it in detail, what you should do next, or if the extensions needs approval, or when it will be revised. So little documentation available about this :(
