Make file uploads all-user visible by default
Closed, InvalidPublic


Currently, uploaded files default to private visibility (only the uploader can view them). One use case where this comes into play is the case of a team landing page with headshots for each member of the team. What typically happens is that a user will upload a headshot, insert it in the wiki page, verify that it looks good, and then move on. Other users, however, will only see a bunch of broken image placeholders (e.g. "\{F1234, height=60, width=60\}") since they are unauthorized to view the image. This seems to be a pretty counter-intuitive default judging by how often this occurs, and since Phriction is primarily a tool for collaboration rather than data storage there doesn't seem to be much of a downside to making visibility default to the "All Users" level.

Not sure I understand the issue, can you not set it to All Users by default already?

I don't administer the instance at my workplace, so this may be a configuration issue on our end.

This stuff was fixed in connection with T4029. That work happened in late October / early November, and your install (Oct 8) predates it. I expect that things work as you expect them to at HEAD. Let us know if you still see issues with new files after updating.
