401 unauthorised error when accessing an anonymous published site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have a publishing site - the default adventure works one. Anonymous access has been enabled at the web app level and the site level. I then copy the default.aspx page in SP designer and rename it to home.aspx. When I try to access this new page I get windows prompted instead of anonymous access.

     

    Thoughts anyone ?

  • Turns out I needed to start a workflow, check the the status button on the ribbon bar and change the status of the approval to completed (note account to approve must have a vailed email address). Only then does it work.

    Cheers

  • Hi,

    Did you add any web part on the Home.aspx page or its a replica of default.aspx?

    If you have modified home.aspx page then make sure content on the page should be accessible anonymously.
