Permission issues in SharePoint 2007

Filed under: SharePoint 2007 — brij28 @ 7:18 pm
 
Issue: Unable to access Spell Checker in Rich Text Editor of Content Editor web part.

Your sub site has custom permissions (NOT inherited from parent site) and you have "Full Control" access to your sub site but you are unable to use Spell Checker in Rich Text Editor of Content Editor web part.

Solution: Create a custom permission level and name it "Reader Plus" (or any other appropriate name) by copying "Reader" permissions and adding "Browse Directories" permission at top level site. Allow "Reader Plus" access to the account at top level site, which has this issue.

Issue: Unable to access "Information management policy settings" from Document Library settings or List settings.

You have "Read" permissions at top level site and "Full Control" permissions to your sub site but you are unable to access "Information management policy settings" from Document Library settings or List settings.

Solution: Same As Above

Note: These permission issues seem to be addressed in Service Pack 1 for SharePoint 2007 however I haven’t got a chance to install Service Pack 1 in our SharePoint environment yet.
