You are not permitted to perform this operation - getting this when trying to add a graphic to a blog

mick davidson Jun 22, 2014

I keep getting this message when trying to add graphic to my blog. It doesn't happen anywhere else.

Any ideas on why this would be? I'm one of the space's admins, so have all permissions. I never have this problem with normal pages and in other spaces.

We're using 5.4.3 Download.

Hi Mick,

This problem seems to be related with permissions. Can you please make sure that your a member of the confluence-administrators group? You can check it by going through Users and find the user that you're using there.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

I've checked our Confluence-Admin group and am not named in that.

That said, I can't see why I'd not be permitted to add a graphic to a blog I've created, in a space I am the admin for. That makes no sense to me, especially as I can and do add graphics using the same methodology to other pages within the same space.

Surely this would mean that the only people could add graphics to blogs using the Ctrl+M method are those in the Confluence-Admin group?
