Membership and front page displays

One more membership question: I currently have my front page set to display a static home page and have my posts page set to "blog". Currently, I have the "blog" page set to allow for my stranger level, as well as all my blog categories set to allow,<strike> but the site is returning a 404 on the blog page</strike>. Is this a glitch or is there a special way I need to set up the plugin to allow the blog to come through for the stranger level?

edit: It is not returning a 404, it is returning the "nothing found" message from my index.php file.

edit 2: It doenst work for members either, only admins.
