    please help. I'm completely locked out of the admin of my site. I reinstalled the lastest version of this plugin after deleting and earlier version that had restricted my admin account. Now I'm almost completely locked out.
    I've deleted the user role editor folder using FTP but it's made no difference.
    Any suggestions on how I can restore full admin access to my website?

    Try to change WordPress roles directly via phpmyadmin. Use this post for the reference:

    Actually ... it only partially worked.
    I'm still locked out of many functions - I can't access features like menus and widgets, update to the new version of wordpress, or access any of my theme options or the homepage of the site.
    Is there a way to go back to a clean slate and remove the roles and changes made by this plugin altogether?

    thanks,
    Louise

    Do you have access to the User Role Editor? It that case you may try the "Reset" button. This function will recreate all default WordPress roles as WordPress does during its installation. Really it calls the code from the WordPress core.

    Regards,
    Vladimir.
