Idea: Let the permission denied page contain information on the node you're not allowed to see.

In particular, I want the page to display the sitedoclet associated with the denied node, if any. This will be useful to SiteDocClan as it will facilitate the maintenance of sitedoclets associated with nodes they're not allowed to "run". A well-written sitedoclet might also allay some of the confusion to which newbies are heir, when they hit a forbidden page.

Technical Implementation

The code of permission denied needs to know which node the user requested and was rejected. Currently, that information is lost (afaict) as soon as the engine decides to redirect to permission denied. Therefore, I propose the following patch in order to preserve that info:

In Everything/, insert the following line before line 1408:

$HTMLVARS{requested_node} = $NODE;

When this has been done, the Permission Denied - (patch) can be applied.

Update: Done!

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
