I have a problem with a Sharepoint aspx page - I need to remove the Contribbute rights for it (so that the users don't see the ribbon anymore) but when I do this, the following script from its masterpage is no longer recognized:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/SiteAssets/jquery-1.6.1.min.js"></script>

So this script is set in the masterpage, and seems to only work properly if the user has Contribute rights.

Is it possible that I remove Contribute rights, but also keep the jquery functionality? Most of the page logic requires jquery to work properly.

where are you removing their permissions? On the page, the library, the site? – David Lozzi Jun 4 '13 at 12:24
I am removing the permissions from Site Settings- Site Permissions, for a specific group. and this user is in that specific group. – Amc_rtty Jun 4 '13 at 16:37
Does the user have read permissions elsewhere? – David Lozzi Jun 4 '13 at 17:43
Let me add to David's question: does the user have Read (visitor) permission to /SiteAssets/? He needs to in order to loads those files. – Paul T. Jun 4 '13 at 22:34
