Site Groups and Access Control

  Asked By: Scot    Date: Oct 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1018

Why would one user not be able to see all the web parts when
designing a web part page.

I an administrator and I can see 27 web parts.

This other guy is in a site group and the group has rights in the
area and when he goes to add web parts to a web part page, he only
see web parts for the five items that have been created in the area.

I need him to be able to get a content editor web part and a page
viewer web part.

Where can I tell SharePoint who should see which web parts?

I have the contents of the group's rights in the portal and in the
area listed here:


2nd post down.

I would so like to be able to hide stuff from some users but not
from others.

That sound right. How do I get to the "List Template gallery
Page?" Is that the one where you get the "Create" option.

I don't get a modify columns and settings there.

Somewhere else?

From your site, click site  Settings > Go to Site Administration >
Manage list template gallery.

I go to my portal  homepage, say, http://sharepoint

and I go to:

Site settings | Security and additional settings | Manage web  part
gallery | Modify settings and columns

The URL of the page  I land on is:


Your post  and Bil Smiser's says change that to:


That page returns:

An error has occurred on the server.

I see that you have left out the "=" sign. The proper URL should be:


I end up at a "Change Permissions: Web part  Gallery" page.

I see that it has unique permissions not inherited from the parent.
The list is blank.

The confusing thing now is that when I go to add  a user  to the list,
I end up at an "Add Users: SharePoint" where I can select users  and
groups from Active Directory and assign them to a portal group.

When I click OK, I see that I've added user to the portal but the
Web Part Gallery permissions list is unchanged.

Can you provide any further direction?

You need to select to inherit permissions from the parent so it will
suck in all the new site  groups you have created.
