I'm trying to enable Create and Read permissions on Accounts for the Guest user with a Salesforce Site on a scratch org. When I go to Sites in Setup,

  1. click on the site
  2. click Public Access Settings
  3. scroll down to Standard Object Permissions

The Read and Create checkboxes for Accounts are unchecked but there's no apparent way to change them. What needs to be done to enable the Read and Create permissions here?

Thank you enter image description here

    is that screen shot after you've clicked edit at the very top of the profile? Jun 25, 2021 at 15:44

Judging by your screenshot, it doesn't look like you clicked the edit button at the top of the profile.

Once you go into your Site Details and click Public Access Settings, you'll be redirected to the Guest User Profile for that Site. You need to then click Edit to change the permissions/settings before scrolling down.

Now the boxes should be selectable and you'll notice some help text related to Standard Object Permissions display as well.
