only owners can access post list

It appears that once cks:ebe is installed the post list is only accessible by Blog Owners.  In the OOTB sharepoint blog users with contribute level access can post blog entries that are pending approval.  Is there a way to have the blog workflow with CKS so contribute users can post blog entries?

Hi,

Actually the EBE doex not prevent this, it's just that only owners see the link when logged in.

The latest (Beta) version allows checks for contributors. This should be released very soon.

I saw the admin links were set up only for owners to see.  But is seems that even if I give my contibutors a direct link to create a blog post they get prompted to login but it never lets them get to the form they get prompted 3x and then the error screen.  Here is an example of the link I tried http://your-site-name/Lists/Posts/NewPost.aspx .  they also can not see the posts list  http://your-site-name/Lists/Posts/AllPosts.aspx

Do you know when the Beta will be available?

Thanks

Mat

I found a good post describing this issue and a work around by Liam on his blog. The work around also fixes the issue of being prompted to login when clicking on search results that have not been rewriten in the …archive/yyyy/mm/dd …. format
