Summary0018345: Link clicking in test messges is restricted to admins
DescriptionIn 3.2.6 RC1 there is some new processing that restricts clicking links in test messages to admins who are currently logged-in to phplist.

This looks to be a significant break of how phplist currently works and I expect it will surprise many people. One scenario is that an admin composes a message and then sends a test message to several subscribers for review. Suddenly clicking a link in the test email will give a 404 error.

What's the reason for the change? Possibly it can be controlled by a config setting, with the default to work as it currently does.

The change is part of general hardening. But I can see your point. I will review the change and think of a way to handle it.

Reminder sent to: michiel

We should update the check and only disallow the personalised links

I've now updated it, so that only the "unsubscribe" and "preference" links are blocked.

The $allowPersonalised is set incorrectly. it should be true instead of false.

The validation of whether a campaign has been sent at all could cause a problem. Consider a campaign being sent, then edited and a test email sent to a new subscriber. That would currently fail with a 404 error.

We may want to encode the "test message" status in the links, instead of reading it from the DB. I've merged your PR.

M, can you push these changes to the HOSTED6 and HOSTED6 plus, we still have tests failing with this issue

Personalised links are disallowed, but other links will work.

I will open a new ticket to review this for a sent campaign being re-edited and then test emails being created.
