Unable to grant access to extranet user for one DL on a site

  Date: Nov 01    Category: WSS    Views: 770

We use WSS 3.0 for a client extranet. The clients all have FBA Accounts that we
create for them. On an existing site, we want to give access to a user to only 1
document library on the site. I created the user and added them to the document
library successfully. The user is able to log in and see the doc lib, however
the styling is missing. I did some digging into this and it seems that the
request to core.css is returning an access denied error.

I did some further digging and the user has "limited access" to the site, which
from what I can tell should be sufficient, but no luck.

To further troubleshoot, I gave read access to the whole site to the user, then
the styling is proper. It seems to be an issue just with restricted access to
the core.css file for users that do no have at least read access to the site.

If you have Publishing enabled on the site you should add the users to the
"Style Resource Readers" group. Publishing uses css and other files in
several locations like the Style Library in the root site of the site
collection. That group gives users access to those locations.

This is WSS 3.0, so no Publishing..........
