We have a publishing portal. We have designed a customer master page and custom page layout for this portal using SharePoint designer. The custom page layout contains couple of web part zones and we have added custom web parts in it.
We have applied the custom master page and the custom page layout. The Defalut.aspx is displaying all the content and top level menu's, images when the admin of the portal logs in. A person who have read access to the portal does not able to view the content and and it just shows a blank page with top level menu, and in the menu he has only the "Press Releases" link. We feel its coming from the master page. The master page also contains a footer message. That footer message is also not appearing to the normal visitors. Only the color (BLACK) from the master page is appearing.
We checked the page layout status and its approved. All the relevant files are checked in state. What would be the issue?
Any suggestions / ideas appreciated. (When we add the user under site admin group he gets all the images, web parts, menu's.)
We checked the page layout status and its in approved state.
