I think you should look at the exUserFolder Product.

The problem with the permissions is, that your users are not logged into
zope, so they are Anonymous to zope and the Anonymous User in Zope can
normally only view the pages, butnot create new ones. You have to
explicitly give him the permission to do so, but this leads to a great
lack of security.


Life is to you a dashing and bold adventure.
