Hi, I've just created new users and added them to a newly created group. I gave the group All access except administer to two specific folders. Everyone has access to Read. I am using SQL for the user source. When the user attempts to log in, it just redirects them to the login page. Have I missed something? I don't see anything in error logs. I'm really stumped on this one.
They need to be part of WebEditors group to be able to access edit mode. Check Web.config what groups have access to edit mode url. It's a location element with a url like /episerver or similar. Check what groups have access there. Normally Webeditors and WebAdmins or Cmseditors/CMSADMINS.
