Whenever I change something on a SharePoint site, no one more than I can see that change. When I log in with another user, the things i changed on the site does not apply for them. I always make sure that I press save when a change has been made.

What is causing this?

Note that this only happens when I try to edit a site. Editing a list or an item in a list is not an isssue.

Edit: In the top of the web page it say: "Status: Check in but being edited and check out exclusively to [Insert name here]"

Yes, thank you. I found out that I do not have the right permission to publish sites. – Pontehh Aug 6 '14 at 7:19
