I’ll keep this one short. After my recent SharePoint migration (ahem, 1 web app out of 6 I have yet to complete), I noticed my standard user account was not able to add pages to my new 2016 site. A little different then this Blog post about unable to edit, however the fix was exactly the same.
- First ensure you have site collection admin rights on the site collection in question.
- Load the site with this account (I noticed there’s only logout, and no longer sign in with another user under the user hamburger menu, so open a browser as the user with site collection admin rights).
- Go to Site Settings -> Master pages and page layouts
- In his case, as well as mine then library had unique permissions (not sure why I have yet to log into my old SharePoint page and see if it was like this from before the migration). Simple make it inherent permissions from the root site.
I was able to find this info from TechNet. I’m on there quite frequent, feel free to check out some of my posts. 😀 Maybe there’s a way I can add my TechNet profile to the word press social links. 😀 stay tuned.
