Sharepoint 2010 Custom Permission Levels

I have added a custom permission level to our 2010 extranet with read and edit access.
I assigned the custom permission to my test user account; I am able to access the main page, but am denied access to all documents, list ECT.

I have checked the user permission and it shows being properly assigned.

Can you think of any reason this would not be working properly.

this is the exact way that I made the custom permission level.

Thank you,Laura

When it comes to security, 98% of the time it's user/admin error.  

Do the lists and libraries have unique permissions (not inherriting from the site)?

no, I checked they are exactly the same.. I have also preformed this in 2007 and the exact same thing happened..i can't figure out what step i am missing..could it be i am making the permission level at the site level and not on the portal level?

Shouldn't matter what level you create it at.  

Can you post a couple screen shots, of the permission level settings, and another showing that your user/group is assigned the permission level?

Ok, so in Shared Documents library, I'm assuming there are already documents there.  If you look at the Permissions of an individual document, is it inherriting?

Central Admin - App Mgmt - Manage WEb Apps.  Choose your web app, up in the ribbon is a button for User Policy.


Curious, if you drop your user in the Contributors group, does the problem go away?

On your custom permission level, you might want to check boxes for "View Application Pages"
