Links on locked users lead to 404 page
|Category:||Accounts / authentication|
When you lock a user account (for instance because person has left the team), there are still many links in every issues, wiki pages, comments left by this person. When you click on them, you are redirected to a 404 page, which is not very easy to understand for users imho.
I think this is because in UsersController#show, user is searched with the "active" scope, and there's a
rescue ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound; render_404 at the end of the action. Maybe you could forget the "active" scope, and change the display after that with a specific error page ?
Any opinion on this ?
