Web Part Galleries

  Asked By: Felicia    Date: Jan 26    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1102

Our readers can see the Virtual Server gallery and the Online gallery, however, they cannot see the portal standard gallery, it appears to them as 0 web parts. Are there additional permissions that are needed to view the standard gallery?

Also, we think that this is related to the fact that we deleted the default site group Reader, although we have created a group called Reader that has the same rights.

Are your readers  in a custom site group that you created?

Yes, we inadvertently deleted the default Reader group and recreated a new Reader group with the same permissions.

Users must have permission to the top-level web  or the Web part  Gallery
on the top-level Web. Otherwise, they will only see the lists on the Web
or subweb which in this case is presumably none.

By default, the built-in Reader and Contributor Site Groups have read
access to the Site Collection's Web Part gallery  managed in Site
Administration of the top-level Web. The Web Designer Site Group has
write access and Administrators always have full access.

Your new Reader group does not have any permissions  to the Web Part
Gallery. To rectify this:

1. Choose Site Settings
2. Choose Go to Site Administration
3. Choose Manage Web Part gallery
4. Choose Modify settings and columns
5. Choose Change permissions for this gallery
6. Choose Add Users
7. Add your Site Group with view  rights

I agree with your assessment, however I would also recommend creating a new site collection, migrating all their data over and starting over. Once that reader / contributor is gone, good luck getting it back. Creating a new one with the same name just doesn't cut it, especially if at some point down the road you want to go the way of anonymous access.
