    I'm running 3.7 and have created a user in both publisher & approver roles.  Neither option is available to the user when viewing a page sent for approval by an editor.

    Administrator users have access to both, and if I assign just 1 or the other to the user in question this works as expected.

    Hi Phil Taylor,

    1. Make sure that "Allow" permissions for Approve and Publish have been set for these roles.

    2. Make sure that the users you have do not belongs to other roles where "Allow" permissions for Approve and Publish have not been set. Deny permission has higher priority and this overrides Allow

    You do not have issues with Administrator users, because the "administrators" role is a special role and permission check is not performed.

    Kind regards,
