I have an Intranet site collection that is comprised of a top level publishing site and a single layer of a dozen publishing subsites, one for each component of our organization. I want to give contributors in those subsites the ability to link
to pages on another org's subsite. Everyone has at least read-only permissions on all subsites. But here is what happens when they try it:
From their local Pages library, the user edits a page in the browser and selects a text string in the Content Editor Web Part, then clicks the "Insert Hyperlink" glyph, then clicks "Browse", which creates the "Select A Link -- Webpage Dialog" pop-up window
that shows all the pages in the local Pages library. To navigate to another subsite, he clicks the up-arrow to navigate up the tree but when he clicks up to go to the top level site he gets "403 FORBIDDEN".
As the owner of the sites, I have no problem navigating up and down and around the site collection tree. How do I give the ordinary user the ability to do the same? I've tried giving them "contribute" permissions but I get the same error.
