Greets,

In my XWiki installation, when regular users log in for the 1st time, they are greeted with a simple message:

                                               Error
You are not allowed to view this page or perform this action.

To be sure, the user has no rights at all.  However, the new user IS placed in the group "XWikiAllGroup", and that group DOES have all rights excelt Admin, Delete, and Program.  In other words, it has View, Comment, Edit, and Script, and Register.

1.  Is this correct?   Should the new user not have all rights except for Admin, Delete, and Program?

2.  The new user IS placed in the XWikiAllGroup.  So, why can the new user not see the Main page, and other pages?

3.  What have I done to get in this situation and what is the proper remediation?

Thanks!!!
Doug

If you explicitly allow a right, it gets automatically denied for the rest
of the users.
Maybe this is your problem. You explicitly allowed view to some user/group
at that level, implicitly denying it for your user.

Thanks,
Caty
