Category displaying issue

I have 3 categories, in each at least 1 board and within each board 1 topic.

Logged in as admin, all are displayed on the first page after the login, as expected.

Any other member login only displays 2 of the 3 categories.

It seems like a permissions thing, but I am going in circles trying to discern the difference in settings between the 3 displayed for admins and only 2 for any other type of member.

Just can not see any difference. It is there but I just can not see it or why.


Well, without seeing your actual permissions for boards, we really can't help you.....

Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

If a member can't see any of the boards belonging to a category, the category isn't shown.

Make sure the permissions to access the board/s in the other category are correct.

This may sound odd, but...

For the misbehaving board, make a change to the permissions.  Any change.  Then change it back...
