SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

OOTB - I'm trying to use a 'Content Query' webpart to display 'Approved' posts, from a discussion board that's on the same site. My 'Content Editors' group have 'Contribute' permission to this site and list, I've also added them to the Sharepoint 'Approvers' group. They can approve posts on the discussion board successfully, however, the 'Content Query' webpart on the 'Home' page (on the same site) doesn't display posts that are approved by the 'Content Editors'. It does however display posts approved by 'Administrators'.

It must be something to do with permissions, but I'm not sure what!
