Hey Corbin, Try checking the permissions on the Global library node in the tree. It should be located under the root node.
I'm logged in as an administrator. I checked all the permissions and they are all set right. We didn't make any changes to the default settings.
Do you have a root page configurared for your blocks (check the site settings page)?
Looked as the JS console in Firebug and it's slammed full of errors from dojo.js
"Error: Unable to load /Admin/cms/Stores/contenttype/?query=getsuggestedcontenttypes&requestedTypes=EPiServer.DataAbstraction.BlockType&dojo.preventCache=1361896847650 status:500
I don't know if it was a cache issue or what but I'm not getting the above error any more. Still no blocks available.
I think I figured out the problem. My original set up was for multiple sites. We had a change of plans and decided to go with a singlular site. When I removed the sites we were not going to use, I DID NOT uncheck the "use site specific block folder" option. For some reason EPi7 freaks out when that option is set for a single site config. As soon as I turned it off, all of my blocks are available.
Ok, I'll report a bug for that but I'm glad that you solved it.
I've run into an issue regarding blocks that's really weird. I've followed Anton K's tutorial but for some reason, I can't create a block inside the CMS. I tried the Block Type specific method and my page will show the block, however I get a "There is no rendered for "MyBlockType"" message on the page screen. I can create a ContentArea for a block, but when I go to create one through the CMS, I don't even have the "New Block" option. If I try it through the Create Content button at the top, there are no block types even available to me. I have BlockTypes defined and have views (using Razor) in my Views/Shared/ folder as well as a BlockController/BlockModel/BlockView in it's own folder (View/MyBlock/MyBlock.cshtml)
Here are some screen shots:
