Getting Locked Out Of Articles

Getting Locked Out Of Articles was created by savethefrogs
Hi,
I just logged in as a Super User.
One article was locked (lock symbol beside article title), saying that another user checked in (or out?) 17 hours ago. My site's global config kicks users out after 90 minutes so I'm not sure why the lock was shown to me. After a few attempts i was able to click it and it checked the article in and went away.

Separately, I was just editing another article in the backend. I saved and closed. A couple minutes later I went to the article title in the backend, clicked it and was told:
Error You are not permitted to use that link to directly access that page (#102).
I tried clicking again and it gave no error but wouldn't open. This has happened in the past and is usually resolved by me logging out then back in. This time it is weird though as I just logged into the site a few minutes ago.

Thoughts?
Thanks, Kerry

Hi Kerry,

That's a common feature in Joomla. If a user edit an article but he doesn't close it, the article won't be available to edit for other users.
  • To solve this concern, go to System > Global check in
  • Select all
  • Click "check-in" button
