Make content available in Drupal 6

This "How to..." covers adding a link to the homepage and making content available to anonymous (the public) users. I have created a Bibliography content type and will make that available to the public in this example.

Currently, in order to view and search the bibliography a user has to be logged in with Administrator rights. When I logout and try to navigate to my bibliography, I get an Access Denied error.

To Fix:

1) Log in
2) Create a link at the top of the homepage for the Bibliography

- Administer > Menus > Primary Links > Add item
Path: biblio
Menu link title: Bibliography
Description: Research publications of the UMBS
Save > Save Configuration

- A link should appear in the header now

3) Make content available

- Administer > Permissions
- Under Anonymous User, check the appropriate content
- e.g., access biblio content, search content, use advanced search
- Save

4) Now logout and use the link to navigate to the bibliography:
