Why does our user get an Access Denied when trying the view the Page Settings for a publishing page in a nested site collection? (e.g /company/manual)
Also, why would SharePoint access the root PageSettings.aspx page and not one relative to the current site collection? Here's an mini excerpt from the IIS log:
80 GET /_layouts/PageSettings.aspx 80 GET /_layouts/AccessDenied.aspx
The user has full control permissions to the nested site collection... and we've tried giving them full control to the top-level without luck.
What would be causing this error?
