SharePoint Quick Launch Links Visible to Users Without Permissions

Hi,

I have an issue on SharePoint 2010 Foundation and the Quick Launch. We have a list of several sites on the Quick Launch that not every user has access to. For example, we have 2 sites called '2.0 Pondfield' and '5.0 Rheola'. User A has no access to either site, however, '2.0 Pondfield' shows on the Quick Launch but '5.0 Rheola' doesn't for User A. When I check the permissions for User A on each site, they have no permissions on either site. So why does one site show on the Quick Launch and the other doesn't? I've recorded a quick video to show this issue and you can download it on the link below.

Thanks
Simon

Nice Video - it shows that although the user can see 2.0 Ponfield on the quick launch, when it is clicked there is no access to the site, (note the access denied.) Therefore permissions are working as they should.

The quick launch navigation has been modified from the original menu, so check under site action --> navigation to make sure that the links are not hard coded, meaning that everyone would see them even if they have no access.

Hope that helps...

Hi SneekCo,

Thanks for your comments. I'm aware the permissions are working but that's why it's so confusing :)

In regards to the Navigation option, I don't have that setting. I believe that's not available in SharePoint 2010 Foundation?

The navigation is available on SharePoint 2010 Foundation, but the feature that enables it may be disabled. It should be located under Site Actions --> Site Settings --> Look and Feel --> Navigation

If it is not there, then the idea of a hard coded link seems unlikely. In order to activate the navigation option, you can enable the "SharePoint Server Publishing" feature, but be cautious because it may change other settings you may have.

Also, if possible try with various other test accounts. Some "system" SharePoint groups can make checking permissions tricky sometimes.

Good luck...

Hi SneekCo,

Thanks for your suggestions again. Unfortunately, everything I Google suggest that the publishing feature is not available in SharePoint 2010 Foundation. Also, I've tried with test accounts and it's the same issue for those accounts as well. It's a strange one, that's for sure!

Any other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks
Simon
