Resolved: Site Collection Administrator has limited permission to site.


Today i restored a moss site backup on a new port at my server. This site had Forms based authentication, after implementing
all the settings i logged in as a site collection administrator in to the site. When i click Site Actions links, i found some
options are missing in the menu e.g. “Edit Page”, “Create Page”, “Create Site”, “Site Settings” etc.
Though i was logged in as site collection administrator even then i was unable to found these options. So where was the problem?
After some research i came to know about “site quotas and locks” and i could fix the problems. Below are the steps:

  1. Open Central Administration
  2. Go to Application Management
  3. Under “SharePoint Site Management” section click on “Site collection quotas and locks” link
  4. Select desired “Site Collection
  5. Here in my case “Read-only (blocks additions, updates, and deletions)” was selected, so i select “Not locked” option and clicked on OK. All options were visible and working now.
