Access Denied When Trying to Create a New Page on a Publishing Site

with 7 comments

From time to time you may encounter that a user on a publishing site is denied access to creating pages, even if the Create Page link in the Site Actions menu hasn’t been security trimmed.

This is probably due to the user not having read access to the the master page gallery.



To remedy the problem, go to Site Actions > Site Settings > Modify All Site Settings > Master Page and Page Layouts. This takes you to the master page gallery.

Now go to Settings > Document Library Settings > Permissions for this Document Library and give the user (or the group he belongs to) read permission.


Permissions: Master Page Gallery

  1. Hej Thomas

    Vi bukker og takker – det havde vi sq aldrig fundet ud af selv 🙂

    Tør vi spørge om, hvordan du selv fandt løsningen?

  2. Godt spørgsmål – jeg kan egentlig ikke huske det!

    Logisk tænkning, ville jeg gerne kunne sige, men det var sikkert bare tilfældig klikken rundt eller hjælp fra en kollega, der løste det 😉
