Joomla! - Liberate the Authors

To hack the Joomla! 1.5.x ( to open the gate for the authors ), is to change the following two files ( the hack has to be applied to any future upgrade of the core )

File 1 is ...components\com_content\controller.php
Go to Line 229 and comment out some lines to stop the wrong message coming up on save:

// if ($access->canPublish)
// {
// Publishers, admins, etc just get the stock msg
$msg = JText::_('Item successfully saved.');
// }
// else
// {
// $msg = $isNew ? JText::_('THANK_SUB') : JText::_('Item successfully saved.');
// }

File 2 is ...components\com_content\models\article.php
Go to line 332 to change the zero value:
// For new items - author is not allowed to publish - prevent them from doing so
$article->state = 1;

The Authors are Liberated !

An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who has been
conducting a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me breakfast because
I stumbled upon it for him... lol. So let me reword this.

... Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk
about this topic here on your blog.

Hey are using Wordpress for your blog platform? I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying to get started
and set up my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I've been surfing online more than three hours these days, yet I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful value enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet will probably be much more useful than ever before.

Heya fantastic blog! Does running a blog similar to this
take a lot of work? I have very little expertise in programming however
I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
Anyway, should you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.

I understand this is off topic nevertheless
I simply had to ask. Appreciate it!
