I’ve just realised that there is a consequence to the loss of Author (where blank = Anonymous) in the online D6 site when it is upgraded. Anonymous users can at the least change the outline configuration. I need to ‘craft’ some SQL code to ‘inject a user’ into the blank fields in the database.
So looked in W3Schools and will try this on the live database.
This has set the uid field to 175 when it is 0, which is the anonymous uid and 175 is the uid of a new user account I have set up for this exercise. But that didn’t work, so tried it again using:
And now if the node / revision isn’t set to me or Lynne it is now set to C-N-U, which means that it isn’t Anonymous and therefore editable by anonymous users after the upgrade.
