We have several lists that do not inherit permissions from the site, and whenever we try adding users to a group that has "Read" access to a list, the users always get denied access.
We've tried (seemingly) everything - sending the users a link directly to the list, giving their group contribute permissions to the list, etc. I did some digging on what permissions settings need to be set by default, and made sure that they were OK - things like the Site Images, Style Library, and Master Page Gallery inherit permissions from the site, etc.
Checking a user's permissions against one of the lists shows that they do, in fact, have "Read" access to it. They are also in a group that has "Read" access to the site itself. But they still are not able to access it. Only when given "Full Control" either directly or when placed in a group with "Full Control" access are they able to reach the site and list.
Am I missing anything?
EDIT: The way I worded the question made it sound like users can get to the site, but not the lists...I should have mentioned that users also can't access the site, period. Regardless of whether or not they are in a group that has read and/or edit permissions.
