    Wierd issues when creating a user with startnodes


    I'm run into strange issues when a user is added to a usergroup where startnodes are set. I use the starter kit as an example. When I add a user to the group with “About Us” as the starting node, I see the following nodes in the content tree.

    enter image description here

    The top root node is clickable, the bottom one displays a forbidden-icon. When I create a new page under "About Us", in this case the page "Test", this page is only shown in the lower root node. The top root node must be manually reloaded before the "Test" node is also visible there.

    This phenomenon occurs both with Content and with Media.

    I tested this in Umbraco 8.1.5 and Umbraco 8.2. Both give the same result. In umbraco 7.15 the user only saw the bottom root node.

    These are the group settings

    Is it supposed to work this way? It seems like a bug to me but I couldn't find anything else about it and probably I am not the first to set start nodes for users. Tips are welcome!

    Best regards

    This seems to be a bug in Umbraco 8 (all versions). Fortunately Marcel van Helmont had made a pull request for this problem and by adding his adjustments to the source code I was able to patch the problem. Thanks Marcel!

    Unfortunately this issue has been open since February and it does not seem to have been adjusted in 8.2.1 and 8.3 ....
