Permissions in Discussion Boards

  Asked By: Aurelio    Date: Sep 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3840

When you look at the help file for "Change permission settings for a
list of library" it tells you to go:
Action>Modify settings and columns>Customize List_name>General

I don't have that option under General Settings for a Discussion Board
that I created? I really just want to open this up for a single AD

Am I looking at the wrong thing? The only thing close to this I can
find is Item-level Permissions.

Are you in a WSS site or a portal? Portal will not have that option; you can only control the permissions  at the area level and not at the list/library level with portal.

Yes it is in the SPS. I'll create a WSS site and try to recreate
it there.

I tried that work around and it just gave me an error.
An Error has occurred on the server.

I remember when I tried, it did not give me error, but the system was asking for my credentials each time I tried to access the document library  though I was admin.

Best option  is like Heather said to create a WSS site or a separate sub area for the document  library or discussion  board.

I'm wondering if we can control the permission  at the area level on a library, list in SharePoint 2007.
