Membership plugin protecting public pages

I have no idea why this is happening but it is very frustrating.

I have set some URL groups up. Some with pages that are to be locked down for our members and others (all listed below) that are to be public.

They were recently all unprotected (as they should be).

All of a sudden they are all protected.

Very frustrating since we are sending people to these pages as part of a 7 day follow up.

I really wish there were other membership plugins that were more compatible with multisite. We have had so many troubles with this one.

Any ideas on what is happening or any other alternatives?

thanks in advance
