    Default Article: Articles, Forums, and Blogs - What's with that?

    My computer always used to beat me at chess, but it is no match for me since I changed the competition to kick boxing

    jdmcdaniel3, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    1. Your user account 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?
    2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.



    What does that mean?

    Thank You,
    What that means, specifically, is that I screwed up. :-) I created a new user group that has blog posting permissions that you were promoted to, and totally forgot about the article permissions side of it. Thanks for helping me out. :-) Try it again. You SHOULD now have the right permissions to read it. Let me know if you have any more problems. - Kim

    Thank you for fixing and explaining the issue. I must say that it had me confused, not that it is real hard to confuse me, but I simply could not understand what was wrong or even state what was wrong, beyond posting the actual message that I received.

    Thank you for this. I was confused about the difference between some sticky forum threads with how to's, articles with how to's, blogs with how to's and the wiki with how to's. Imho it is even better to have one place for all these helpfull instructions, but this clarify's things a lot.
