Issue with TopNav Menu and permissions

Jun 17, 2013 at 9:31 PM
I am currently have an issue with the top nav menu dropdown. I am using managed metadata for navigation and when I log in with a user who has edit permissions to the page the dropdown works, but when I log in with a user with just read permissions the dropdown arrow doesn't show. The main header shows, but not the dynamic links.

I published a major version of all files from the wsp to make sure that this wasn't the issue, and I also verified the user has permissions to read the files.

Any Ideas?

I have seen this issue arise when the target of a particular dynamic menu item (dropdown) was to a local page that did not have a major version published. External links should always appear but even with managed navigation, SP seems to try to verify that a link to a local page is in fact a valid link.

Please let us know if this solves the issue, or if you found another workaround.
