Sharepoint 2013

I have setup SharePoint 2013 with 3 sub sites and for some reason when  a user tried to access the site it asks for login authentication, I have enabled ann access but it still does it, It will show the logos and menu of front page but nothing else.

I have tried creating a group and adding people to that on AD but its not letting that work either.

Very odd

Is there unpublished or secured content on the pages? (Like images taken from libraries the users dont have access to?)

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I was just working on another thread where permissions had been set up on a hidden list and caused issues;

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/MS-SharePoint/Q_28471949.html

Any configuration happened on this site or is it totally vanilla, just created?

Just been created,

I really want only the admin acc to make changes and anyone else to have Read Only even if they not on the domain, I thought that was what the ann access would do but its not.

Anonymous Access can be tricky. There's sometimes resources being rendered on the page that Anon users get prompted for.

Can I suggest you download Fiddler and see which items on the page might be causing the 401 and hence the prompts. Might be items in the file system of the server rather than the site. (Some styling resources for example)

Hi,

Its now getting very odd !, If I browse to sharepoint server on a Windows 7 machine on domain I get the top menu structure and logo. If I browse using windows xp it works straight off and get the full content read only  !

Obviously the browser settings and probably the browser version are different on those machines.

In Internet Explorer -> Settings -> Internet Options -> Security Tab -> Intranet Zone -> Custom Level

Scroll to the bottom.

User Authentication. What setting does it have? Does it state to prompt for credentials, Auto login or what?
