why can't other users view content posted by user? Where can I find this permission issue?

  • It all depends on what have you done to your permissions - what have you clicked in GUI, what modules you have installed, possibly also what caching options you're using, and so on. – Mołot Nov 5 '13 at 8:48

Go to admin/people/permissions and ensure that "View published content" under the title "Node" is selected.

Also, if using OG go to admin/config/group/context and ensure that "Node" is enabled, and that if you have "Content" under admin/config/group/permissions that these permissions are also correctly selected.

Also ensure that the node you want all users to see has the two checkboxes Published and Promoted to front page checkbox ticked. You find these under "Publishing options" when you edit the node as the administrator.

The defaults for these are set per content type. If a user that is not the administrator is creating content, these must be set by default for the type. The built-in content type "Article" has these checked by default, so the user should create article of type "Article" (or another type that has these two boxes checked by default) for the article to be visible on the front page for non-admin users.

  • Also, as a second thought, ensure that the user who is saving the new content is also Publishing it, and that it is a content type that is allowed to display on the front page! – KyleM Nov 5 '13 at 4:29
  • Even if view published content is checked and the user who posted it promotes it to front page still the other user cannot view his post – user2658838 Nov 5 '13 at 4:55
  • Can user 1 (Administrator) see the content, and can the user who posted the content see it on the front page? – KyleM Nov 5 '13 at 5:06
  • only the admin can view his post but i want it that also other users can view admin post – user2658838 Nov 5 '13 at 5:07
  • OK, please clarify, are you using the OG module, and is the Admin able to see it on the Front Page, or through the content list? – KyleM Nov 5 '13 at 5:08
