My Site Owners can't create pages?

My 'Site Owners' can not create pages? That was one of the questions that I got this week.

No problem, just set the right permissions to create pages. Here is a screen of the permissions applied to the Owners of the BlogPosts site:





Now that is strange, the Site Owners have 'Full Control' over the site, so creating pages could not be a problem, right? So something that I thought I could fix in a minute seem to turn out in something else :-).

After searching for a while, I found out that the permissions on the 'Master Page Library' weren't set correctly. If you want to create pages, you need to be sure that you have at least read rights on this library. So these are the steps to put the right permissions on the library:






Now, normally this is not something that you need to do, these settings are set correctly, but off course after customizing and plumbing site it could be that these permissions changed and with this post I want to make sure that you are aware of this situation.

So, for those who are facing this problem, hope this post helped you to fix it. For the others, hope you enjoyed reading it :-)
