I am creating a section of a website in Sitefinity 4.1 requiring a log-in. I have two roles, "Member" and "Member - Board of Directors". I am trying to have a second navigation only appear for the "Member - Board of Directors" who will have pages in addition to the standard member role.
When I edit the navigation widget in the template and go to More > Permissions, and edit the "View a Widget" section and remove the "Everyone" role and add the "Member-Board of Director" role, the changes do not seem to take. After publishing the template, if I go back to editing the template the "Everyone Role" is back.
I have even tried explicitly denying the "Member" role on the navigation widget but when logging into the page with member credentials the navigation widget is still appearing.
I have also noticed that when using the user assigned to the "Member" role the Log In Name does not appear. The Log-In name only appears when I log in with the administrator account, which makes me wonder that I might have something configured wrong for the user assigned to the member role.
Included is a screen shot of the permission window for the navigation widget and the permissions of the page group of which the member pages are inheriting the permissions from.
Any help with this would be appreciated, Thanks.
