SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003, when you open a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services subsite and you try to rename the subsite by using the Site Settings dialog box, you are repeatedly prompted to enter your user name and password. As a result, you cannot rename the subsite.

CAUSE

This behavior may occur if you are member of the Administrator site group on the Windows SharePoint Services subsite but you are not a member of the Reader site group on its parent site.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this behavior, do one of the following as appropriate to your situation:
  • Ask the site collection administrator to rename the subsite for you.
  • Log on as a user who is a member of the Administrator site group on the subsite and who is also a member of the Reader site group on the parent site, and then rename the subsite.
