I have created about 200 pages, and have 80 different roles. Two roles for each of our departments, one contributor and one publisher.
Right now I have not activated any workflows.
I have broken permission inheritance on all of my department pages and sub-pages to only allow those department roles to edit the page. When logging in as a department user I see that all the pages I am not allowed to edit are greyed out. When I get to my specific department the links to the page are blue. I can click on them and open up the page in edit mode, I can open the Generic Content block that has been placed there. By design, I have not given this role rights to add widgets. I can open the Edit dialog box and make my edits.
When I click Publish (because no workflow has been enabled and all roles can publish), I receive an error box telling me that "You are not allowed to modify this page:".
The weird thing is I can go to another page with the same permissions and be able to Publish, granted there is just one page that seems to let me do that.
Also, when I go back to the page permissions to look at who has what... all of my custom roles are not shown. The names are missing and they looked stacked up. When I add new groups to the permissions, I have 5 pages to go through. I have to add all the roles from one page, and the click Done Selecting and open the roles again and go to the next page. If I try to move pages without clicking Done, it does not keep the roles from the previous pages.
