[resolved] Admin WP User Can't Do Anything? (8 posts)

    Hi there. I just can't get permissions assigned to my admin login. My son's user works just fine when I lower him to guest. On the WPPB Edit Forum page the only user I can assign permissions to is Guest. Nothing else sticks. I've read through all the help posts and I can't make anything work. I enabled FB login too if that matters.

    Hey Lee,

    Sounds like you need to update your roles with WPBB. Goto your admin dashboard -> WPBB -> Tools -> Refresh Roles.

    In the next version it'll let you know if you need to update your roles.

    Thanks!

    Well, I already tried that 100 times and again since you replied. Still no luck.

    When I go to the one forum I created, I can't set any permissions for roles other than guest. I can check the box but they only save for Guest (which is the only one in bold). So, only guests can post or view in that there.

    Even when I create a new forum I am unable to set permission for roles other than guest.

    Ugh.

    Hey Lee,

    Could you email me with temporary admin account login details? Never heard of anyone having this trouble even after using the update roles tool so will be interesting to see what's causing this. My email is me@codebycarter.com

    Thanks again

    Hey icbomber38,

    I actually sent you an email back and was waiting for a reply. The problem is because of a plugin you used before I'm guessing a gallery or role plugin which for some reason has renamed your roles. Nothing to do with WPBB. Would you be able to give me access to phpMyAdmin or a similar tool? If not I can explain to you how to do it yourself, again my email is me@codebycarter.com

    Thanks

    Resolved. Some previous plugin had modified the user roles names in the database so I had to manually change it. Will probably add a tool to the plugin in the future in case this ever happens to anybody else
