I am working on an enterprise wiki site collection. And I have edited the EnterpriseWiki.aspx page layout , where I added some new columns and I have also remove the Page rating.

Now users with contributor permission will see the following page , including the modification :-

enter image description here

While users with Read Permission will see the default page layout as follow (including the Page rating which have been removed!!!):-

enter image description here

Also if they click on the left side term store (Standard or Document Type), they will get the following error:-

Sorry, you don't have access to this page

and as i mentioned if i grant the Reader user a Contribute permission level, he is going to see the full modified page layout ..

Can anyone advice

    Since it's not approved yet, the readers will not see the published version.. Approve the page layout and the updates should replicate! – Arsalan Adam Khatri Oct 2 '14 at 14:22

    The page is checked out. Please check in the page, approve and publish it , so that other users can see the change – Unnie Oct 2 '14 at 14:22

    @Unnie no the page status is pendding , but not checked-out, also inside my versioning settings i mentioned that any user with Read permission can view pending items,, so this is not a problem.. the issue is with the Fact that for some reasons Reader users will not be able to see the modified page layout, or to navigate through the term store... – john Gu Oct 2 '14 at 14:41

Check-Out then Check-In the page layout and the master pages, and I publish them as major versions and now the page layout is working well.
