That sounds wrong because the page name has to end with Group or you
have to show your page_group_regex definition.

you could setup acl_rights_default = u"UserGroup:read,write All:read"
that will enable people on the page UserGroup listed to change and
create pages. If they are not logged in they can read.
and acl_rights_before  =

also you could setup a special Known identifier e.g. acl_rights_default
= u"Known:read,write" Then everyone with an account has this right.

I do prefer to use the UserGroup page.
