This Drupal page says that for Drupal 7 to allow users to view their own unpublished content to check "view own unpublished content" in permissions.
I have this checked, yet when someone clicks on 'admin/content' it says permission denied. Of course I don't want to give them permissions related to admin content.
Currently I have the
override node options module enabled, and when a user unpublishes their content, they can no longer get back to it to continue editing and then publish it.
I cannot use the 'view unpublished' module as many threads suggest as it gives an entire role access to all unpublished content related to that role.
What I am leaning towards is a view. Currently I have a very good working block that allows people to view their PUBLISHED content while on their profile page. I cloned this and simply switched the filter "published: yes" to "published: no" and it won't work. I tried setting the view permission to view own unpublished content, and it will not work.
Is 'view own unpublished content' broken in D7? Drupal core says I should be able to allow users to view their own unpublished content. How can I do this without all this hakery and dependency on a 3rd party modules?
