Hi Vladimir,

Thank you so much for the quick response and for the suggestions!

The role in question is called “Production”. Here’s a screenshot of the “Admin Menu” window for the Production role: http://i.imgur.com/4WZWr72.png

As you can see, the “Market News” and “Links” items should be blocked for this role. Here’s a screenshot of a user with the Production role, where you can see that they still have access to both of those items: http://i.imgur.com/5LLWZ1u.png

So I just took the following steps:
1. Change role of test user account from Production to Administrator
2. Change role of test user account back to Production

And this user still has access to those two items while assigned to the Production role.

I’ll investigate whether there is a plugin on the site that may be interfering. In the meantime do you have any other thoughts?
