Problems with "Edit Page"

  Asked By: Juana    Date: Feb 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3515

I have a user (authenticated via Novell EDirectory using LDAP) who is a
member of a sharepoint group with full control of a site.
This user can access site settings and all the site pages.
This user can even edit page on a system page (a list page for
example), but cannot edit a site page (a welcome.aspx created from a
publishing page template for example).
The interesting thing is that as I get a sharepoint access denied page
when trying to edit the page, I can re-login as a site collection
administrator, or a user who has been given full control through the
policy for web applications, and see that the page has been checked out
by the first user.
This is very strange behavior, so I guess the question is: what would
be secured on a page in edit mode that a user cannot get access to it?
How can I rectify this?

If they can edit  site pages  but not system  pages then double check the
permission settings  for the MasterPage and page  layouts gallery and the Style
Library. If they have been given full  control at the site  level they won't
necessarily have rights in some of these lists and libraries where permissions
inheritance is broken by default. A web  App Permissions Policy would override
this. Normally users get what they need in these locations by being a member of
the Site Collection Members group, but if you gave them permissions manually
that may be the problem.

Actually, that should have read "If they can edit  system pages  but not site

When you say a web  app permissions policy, what exactly do you mean?
Are you talking about the policy for web applications?

Yes, I mean users who were granted full  Control permissions through a policy for
web applications. The original message pointed out that site  collection admins
and users granted full control  through a policy at the web  application level
could see and try to check out the file. That's because the Full Control
permission at the level of the Web Application will override all permissions on
all objects at a lower level. Since I think his problem comes from missing
non-inherited permissions the Full Control policy would explain why this group
is exempt.
