404 Error!!

  Asked By: Donavan    Date: Oct 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 10521

I have been working on a new Web App in a test enviroment. All seemed
to be fine for me, so I sent a link for someone in the dept. to look
at it, and they receive a 404 error. They have correct permissions,
routing is right.

What's weird about it is it works fine for me. So I tried to look at
some other pages in the webapp with this user, the default that
sharepoint put in works fine, so I thought, maybe its just my
masterpage or something. So I created a simple .html page in
/pages/test.html - Same thing 404. So then I created the same page in
the root /test.html It shows up for the user!!

So what could be causing seemingly any new page added to /pages/ dir
to not work. Because the SP default page is in /pages/default.aspx and
it still works for the user.

Have you enabled versioning in the document library to only allow the
author to see?

Excuse my ignorance, but I'm not even sure where to make change that
setting? Although since thats the case, I highly doubt that it is set
that way, where do I go to view this?

The only thing that makes me think its not that too is that when I
create a page in the root. It seems to work fine.

Alright, I figured it out!!

The problem was, although it even said in SharePoint designer that it
was checked in. It wasn't so I had to go through the Site Settings and
make sure it was Checked in as a Major Update.

Once that was done, I was still getting permission problems for anyone
else, for pages that used my branded master page. The problem there
was I had to make sure the master page was accepted under Site
Settings /Gallery / Master Pages.
