I have created a page layout that (among other Things) have three web part zones.
If I use this page layout on a page, I can easily add web parts to the zones. But trouble is, I'm not the one, who needs to do this. For this I've created a user Group, giving them Full Control to the site containing the page. But, when they edit the page, the web part zones are not even shown!
I tried giving the same users Full Control to the masterpage gallery to see, whether they needed some kind of extra access to the page layout. No luck.
The web part zone has all the trimming to be editable in the page layout:
AllowLayoutChange="True" Visible="True" AllowCustomization="True" AllowPersonalization="True" FrameType="TitleBarOnly" LockLayout="False"
I also tried giving the users Full Control to the Web Part Gallery to no avail.
Hope somebody can help!
