Lqt menu actions must obey permissions: do not show actions (or grey out inactive actions) in the menu which the visitor or user is not allowed to perform
Open, LowestPublic


Current Lqt version shows all actions in the menu, for example including "drag to new location" which only logged-in users can perform.

After trying to perform the drag and drop action, users see the error message "permission denied" in the last moment - instead of telling them this when starting the action.

I suggest to grey out actions for which the current user does not have sufficient rights.

Still the case and this is a major usability problem imho. Highlighting.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
