After Membership update, only 25 posts on homepage, except for ADMIN sees all

I just updated to Membership
I edited the config file to show 300 posts and 150 pages.
However, only the admin sees more than 25 posts (sees all 80+). Free Access visitors and logged in subscribers only see 25. In the Access Levels I have all the posts and pages to show to all levels. Any suggestions why only admin can see all the posts on the homepage (by clicking on OLDER ENTRIES too)?
thank you for any tips
