Security issue using Sharepoint designer. I think this is more administration than Sharepoint designer.
Have created a site where designers will update pages,CSS,Master pages.
I have put these users in the Designers sharepoint group. I have branded the site initially and now passed this to the designers.
The issue I have is the designers cant checkout and ammend master pages or css's even though the description of the group says this.They come up 'ACCESS DENIED'
'Members of this group can edit lists, document libraries, and pages in the site. Designers can create Master Pages and Page Layouts in the Master Page Gallery and can change the behavior and appearance of each site in the site collection by using master pages
and CSS files. '
I have also tried to put the users on the site owners group but have 'ACCESS DENIED' and no luck. However if I make them a secondary administrators from site setting it works fine.
I need to know the correct planning of roles in Sharepoint and what groups . The designers will ammend pages,page layouts,ammend master pages.
