I added an XML Viewer web part on my page to display a twitter RSS feed. When I view the page I can see the feed perfectly. However, no other users can view this web part on my page. I'm confused because this web part doesn't exist on a personal view and the permissions to the site are wide-open.

Any suggestions as to why this web part would only display for me and not everyone?

Audience Targeting? – SpartanDonut Jan 27 '12 at 19:57
@tylerrrr07 - This is SharePoint Foundation. No Audience Targeting in this version of the product. – pmartin Jan 27 '12 at 21:47

For an unknown reason, the page that I added the XML Viewer web part to was checked out in SharePoint designer. Checking in this page in SharePoint designer made the web part visible to all users.
