ModelAdmin permission doesn't work

I want to give some members only access to the ModelAdmin. When I only choose ModelAdmin in members > Permissions, the member doesn't get access to admin.

When I choose CMSMain and ModelAdmin, the member can log in but only sees CMSMain.

You have to grant access to ModelAdmin and the particular subclass. Eg, if you've created a JournalEntryAdminclass, you need to set the permission to access both ModelAdmin and JournalEntryAdmin.

Thanks Hamish, that was indeed the problem.

Strangely enough the member can't add a photo: Action 'iframe' isn't allowed on class Image_Uploader

Also, the has_many object that is linked doesn't work properly: I can add one, but can't edit it. CanEdit and CanCreate are both set to true.
