Thanks for your time .....
I'm struggling with this subject ... after reading the docs/threads!

what would I like to achieve:
an editorX can only edit his own content items on the front-end (Edit). I.e. he should NOT be able to go into the Dashboard.

My setup is as follows:
have the appropriate 'Owner' on the content item. Created a Role like RoleX where I defined:

on the Orchard.Framework Feature:
Access Admin Panel [nil] [nil]
Access site Front-end [tick] [tick]
Site owners permission [nil] [nil]
appropriate definitions on the content items

What happens:
Logging in as editorX shows on the front-end the (Edit) correctly and 'Dashboard' in the footer is NOT shown; but clicking (Edit) gives a blank screen!

What is the correct setup to achieve this?

thanks for your help, ed

Not sure, but I think because the user is not allowed to access to the admin panel, it can't go to the content item edit screen, since that's part of the admin panel.
What you're looking for is allowing the editor to edit his content on the front end. That is currently not supported.
