How Do I?  - 
 
My sessions directory is overrun with session files. Did I miss a setting in Craft docs? Do these files not get purged?

I thought I remembered seeing a craft implementation for CAPTCHA somewhere? Documentation?

My craft/storage/runtime/sessions is being overrun with session files. are these files safe to purge? is there a best practice for clearing these files? Why do I have so many session files to begin with?

Only if something (in your template perhaps) ultimately triggers HttpSessionService.

How Do I?  - 
 
I am trying to put together a system where I can have users register and contribute content without granting them access to the CP. Am I correct that this needs to be done using front-end forms. I have a front-end user registration form and login form. I guess all I need to do now is create a dashboard for them to manage their content. Which leads me to the following questions.

1. Is there a user session variable I can test to see if I have a logged in user?

2. Do I loose access to the field types available from within the control panel? In other words, are the asset uploader,  matrix and rich text field types no longer available?

3. Maybe I am going about this all wrong. I will take correction.

No problem, glad you got it (partially) worked out!

Feel free to email Craft support with your feedback, or start a new thread here under the "Feedback" category. They are always looking to improve Craft, and would definitely appreciate your two cents!

(I like the idea of a custom plugin, btw... let me know if you get that working.)

Uh-oh. I just applied the latest update (I have applied updates as they come through so this is just the latest update about 10 min ago.) Now I get a message.

Fatal error: Class 'Craft\CEvent' not found in /var/www/cranberryburst_craft/craft/app/services/TemplatesService.php on line 727

Whoops. Any help here? I do not have a backup.

What Mark fails to realize or even mention is that he won the lottery of birth and apparently his sibling lost. Startling? Really? More like shameful. . . It would be more believable if he wasn't acting.

Actually we won. The aborted baby would likely be like him. So instead of two liberals we only have one. Fair trade to me

Limit the entries that are displayed in CP based on group privileges.

I have a user group that has Edit / Create permissions for their own entries only.  Yet when they click entries they can see ever entry in the system. They do get an "unauthorized" message when they try to access the entries, but my question is why display them in the first place? 

Is there a way to suppress the display of entries that do not belong to a user?

Yeah, this is going to be a pretty sticky change.  Take a structured section for example... what if a parent node was created by an different author?  We can't remove that from the tree or the structure will break.

One option would be to always display the entry, but grey out / not make clickable anywhere we're retrieving entries.

And to be consistent, we'd probably want to take the edit users permission into account, too.

At any rate, thanks for bringing it up... it's on our list to address.

I want to set focus to an entry from a page which is not tied to the slug.

Is there a way to do something like

{% set entry to craft.entries.section('news').slug('this-is-my-slug') %}

I can accomplish what I want with a for/endfor tag pair but it seems like I should just be able to set focus.
