Site Priv. issues

  Asked By: Shauna    Date: Jan 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 694

I have a main site. Everyone is a contributor. Now I just built a sub-site with
the permissions to inherit from the parent site. They are all contributors on
both sites now. On the sub-site they can't scroll down and see the drop down
lists and boxes I need them to see.

Any suggestions?

Can u help to give few more details?
What do u mean by scroll  down and see drop  down list ??
Any kind of error message they get ?

Did u try to change the permisson to 'admin' and see if its working ??

I dont think this has to do with permissions  on the subsite. But am unclear
abt the problem itself.

Sorry I should have explained it better. I have a mainsite called A, and
everyone one had reader rights and some are admin, and even contributors. Now
off site  A I have a sub-site  called B. Now here I have some databases restore
procedures documented and since I am a admin I can see restore/move/ options/
and help. Now all my users that can see site B with contrib. privs. can only see
the scroll  down box that says help in it. I need them to see all of these
options. I switched them to web designer and know they can see everything, but
they could also delete and do stuff to the site?

That better or make sense?

Possibly look at the site  group permissions. It may be the manage list

Try to make a test group and test out the different permission bet
contributor and web designer.

Its always better to prefer creating site  group and customize the rights and
then add the user community when dealing with this kind of restriction related

This way, you miminize overhead of managing users rather than adding then as
'contributor; or 'web designer' or something else...

To create a site group:

site admin--> Manage site groups.

Create a group and customize the rights as u prefer and add users to it. Then
include this group to the contents you prefer to access them. Before that, U got
to clean out the participants from manage users list...

The other workaround is to CUSTOMIZE the default 'web designer' access if you
wish to do so..

Go to Manage site groups --> Click on 'web designer'

if not ---> /_layouts/1033/grpmbrs.aspx?role=Web%20Designer

Click on 'Edit site group permission'

or --- > _layouts/1033/editrole.aspx?role=Web%20Designer

and change what you need to do....

But plz remember, all the web designers will get this level of permissions
while editing the default permission.
