In Administration -> Structure -> Blocks I have defined Search box region with search box block and Left sidebar region with navigation block. These blocks are visible when I'm logged in but when I log out the blocks disappear?

Do you where is the fault?

I have an idea where could be the problem. There are two files with page template - page.tpl.php and page--front.tpl.php.

thank you

You need to grant permission to search content. Peoples > permission > Use search checkbox

  • This made the search box block visible but navigation block is stil invisible.

    Then there are probably no menu links in the navigation blocks visible for an anonymous user.
