My experience in Plone is that things that are published are published, whether 
in a user folder or not.

However, just in case, I changed 'self.folder' to 'self.portal', resulting in a 
folder being created and published at:


Same error as before - the anonymous user receives a login page. :(

I made this change, as well, but the error still occurred.

Thanks for the feedback, Maurits! I wish it had solved the problem. Any more ideas?
