Hi Cyndy,

here come some thoughts howto solve your problems :-)

Did you check the site options for public views?

 public views   Yes  No  Help

If set to yes, users will be able to create portfolio Views that are accessable to the public rather than only to logged in users

What´s about the Edit View access for your views? Do you see the  Add  "Public" Button? Do you see the Public block in the Added area?

Did you "save" your settings?

Feel free to ask more details :-)

Cheers Heinz

Hi Cyndy,


I have lso aexperienced a few quirks. I don't know the reason, but this is just what I have found. You should only apply one permission e.g. public but not public and secret URL (even if it is ok only one will work). Don't set dates, this has caused problems. Finally if all else fails copy the view, and reset to public. You also need to make sure settings are correct as per Heinz's post. I have found some students have no trouble, then some views are a problem. Other times you are forced to login to see a public view. Ian
