Kind of a mystery problem here. I have been building a couple of Sharepoint sites for our teams. Nothing fancy.
The mystery is that the symptoms are slightly different, depending if one uses a generic public logon, or a discrete user logon.
Generic Logon - "Welcome User XYZ" (located at top right) is gone. Site Actions is completely gone.
Discrete User Logon - "Welcome User XYZ" is visible. "Site Actions" (located upper right, below "welcome") is visible, but when clicked on, page goes to edit mode, but "Exit Edit Mode" is not visible.
Viewing the main page (Default.aspx) gives a different page, depending on whether one is logged on as a generic user or a discrete user.
It is almost as though there are two different versions that are running unsynchronised, depending on the logon.
- Generic Logon renders Version A.
- Discrete Logon renders version B.
A month or so ago, I was on some Sharepoint forum hunting some code snippet to make the quick launch have collapsible menus. It recommended going through an evolution of making a copy of "default.master" and renaming one of the copies "olddefault.master" as a
back-up and inserting the code there. Tried it. Didn't work. Thought I cut the offending code out but a comparison
