403 Forbidden Error with Full Control and Browse

  Asked By: Bobbi    Date: Mar 26    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3269

I just migrated my farm. Everything appears to be working fine except
the summary link web part. (So far that I can tell). A user with full
control and edit the web part, add a link, but when they click "browse"
to browse to find a file or site to link to, they get a 403 FORBIDDEN
pop up. I have confirmed that the "Browse" option is selected in the
permissions for Full Control. Site collection administrators have no
issues using the browse button. I know it must be a permissions issue
somewhere but can't find where. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Hi ,
i dont know if the question is revelant any more but,
i faced a similar sort of issue when one of the users said she was getting the 403  forbidden error  in the summary  web part  . Strangely the user  did get the 403 forbidden  error on the browse  button adjacent to the link  and did not get the error on the browse button  near the image link.
The most weird part is that when i added the user to owners of the site. it still did not work, but when i added another to the members group . the other user did not get the 403 forbidden error.

The issue turned out to be an issue with an conflict with the member groups that the user was part. When i checked the user was a member of the same admin group which was conflicting with the sharepoint groups. i just removed the group members in AD and it worked.
