We've got the PHP and Apache caches turned way up beyond the defaults / suggested. If there's a caching issue, it shouldn't be due to the amount of space available, it's an implementation issue.

I can set the default value for search result count (by hacking the html template), but that's a band-aid, really.

I'll also say that I tried to do it with incognito and I could see it, so it was especially weird.

We've gotten this report a few times, and I've yet to find anything that points to the cause. What's worked in the past is for the user to log out then back in, or clear their browser's cache.

Yep. Keep me in the loop - I'm trying to track this data for discussion with phpBB later on.

Plarz,

If it helps, I emulated him in the Admin Control Panel to compare access.
What I see on the main screen when using MY permission set is on the left.
What I see when emulating his permission set is on the right.

It's NOT there.
