SharePoint Online Command Bar missing "Page Details" link on pages for Read Only Permissions

Occasional Visitor

As per my testing, you need at least "Contribute" permissions to see the Page details option. This article also mentions (does not clearly mention who can see the page details option :unamused: :( Users with permission to author SharePoint pages will see...
