Setting Sharepoint's StaticDisplayLevels to 2 still refuses to work for regular users and only admins!

Within Microsoft Sharepoint 2010, I set the StaticDisplayLevels to 2 in the master file and update it.  But when I login as a user that is not an admin - the display levels do not appear - when I login as an admin they work.

What can I check to make sure this works?  Please help ASAP!

Thank you in advance!

Check in the master page, approve it and publish.

Explanation: Libraries with masterpages by default have the approval and publishing turned on. When masterpage is changed it is changed to draft and changes in new version are visible only to people with sufficient permissions (eg. admins). Other users view the previous main version (published). Once you approve and publish the masterpage all users will be able to see the changes.

My sincere thanks for the reply.

We are checking in on it soon.  As I remember yesterday, we did publish it but may not have approved - if that's possible?
Plus we need to check where its publishing too!

Publishing means just creating a major version - it's not moving or copying the file anywhere. You may have both publishing and content approval turned on, so file needs to have both the major version published and be approved.
