    Perhaps we want to fix this?? I don't think they should be able to comment but they should be able to see from the portal and read. I sent the link to the HPVT one to all the bloggers from this past weekend and just learned they can't access it.


    FIX IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hmm, permissions seem to be correct.
    You mean people not signed in?

    I also have had the same thing happen the last week or two when not logged in. So for me it would be as a guest I can’t read the blogs in Firefox or IE.

    EP I can’t access your blog at the link provided either as a guest.

    This is what it tells me

    You are not logged in or you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
    1. You are not logged in. Fill in the form at the bottom of this page and try again.
    2. You may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    3. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

    The link is for your blog located in your control panel not EP's.

    Log in and the link takes you to your blog options.

    Yes, sorry that link was for user blog permissions not a blog itself.
    It is down to the user if they want the public to see their blog or not.

    I guess I need to change the function, or its replacement to not have a blog listed if the user isn't actually able to read it - I believe thats how the new one will function anyway.
