Had another strange SharedPoint issue when trying to edit the front page of our
WSS 3.0 SharePoint Web Site.
Clicked Site Actions
Clicked Edit Page
Clicked Edit dropdown on the Web Part I wanted to change
Hmmm - where did "Modify Shared
Web Part" go?
Checked permissions - yep had sufficient rights. So what could it be?
I was using IE9, and noticed before it does some weird things so put it into Compatibility mode - and bingo working again!
