I deeply apologize if this issue is misplaced or not actually an issue but a simple lack of understanding on my part. I have a site where I've added lots of fields to my user profiles. I'm using page manager coupled with panels to alter the display of those user profiles. Essentially its a two column layout. I simply want to do a simple "display current user" in the left column and display some related information in the right.
For myself (user/1) this is working perfectly but for anonymous users they can't view any user profiles. If I turn the page manager (user profile template) off anonymous users can see profiles but if I turn it back on they disappear. I've set the "view user profiles" checkbox for anonymous users under permissions but no luck.
Have I missed some additional setting in page manager / panels that overrides the "view user profiles" checkbox or is this a bug? Please help - I'm quickly running out of time to complete this project and visible user profiles are an absolute necessity.
