Create Page gives Access Denied error on Sharepoint

Came accross this problem where users with Full Control rights of a Sharepoint site were getting the Access Denied message when they clicked on the "create page" button.

The reason was that the users who create pages need to have read rights to the "Master Page Gallery"!

Add custom Styles to Rich Text Editor Sharepoint - content editor web part

To add custom styles to the Rich Text Editor in SharePoint (both the ones accessed through the content editor web part and the inbuilt page content web part), just add styles in the format to your css style sheet that your master page uses. It's as simple as that.

If you are not using custom master pages style sheets, then just add the styles in the format rteCustom-Title (rteCustom- should appear before the style name) to a stylesheet and upload the stylesheet css file to the style library of the site collection, then go to site settings - master page settings and choose the override style sheet option and point to the style sheet that you just uploaded to. That's it, now when you open the rich text editor in sharepoint, type in some text, highlight the text you typed and from the styles dropdown choose the style you want.

Example of custom style that would appear in the css class .ms-rteCustom-TitleRed{Font-family: arial;Font-size: 14pt;Color: Red;}
