    When I login to the dashboard at http://atlantacatholicsingles.org/wp-admin/

    the browser displays:

    You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    And the URL redirects to:

    http://atlantacatholicsingles.org/wp-admin/themes.php?page=all-in-one-event-calendar-install-themes

    This all started yesterday with an upgrade to Timely's all-in-one calendar. At one point I was able to get most of the menu items on the dashboard, but now have gone backwards. The original soluation (restore

    Any ideas? I'm almost to the point of doing a complete new install of my entire website. I've spent hours trying to fix this, and I haven't made any progress.

    The original solution no longer works:

    I have looked through various postings about this issue, but my situation appears to be different. I have not modified any code on the website (other than deleting the all-in-one-events-calendar directories---which had no effect). I am running WP 3.5.2.

    Here is a link to my original case yesterday: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/all-in-one-event-calendar-corrupted-wp-dashboard-website-1?replies=4

    Any ideas? I'm almost to the point of doing a complete re-install of everything from scratch. I feel that it is a simple solution though (like modifying an entry in the SQL DB). I've looked at some entries but haven't changed anything. Everything looks okay to me.

    Thanks!

    Hi larryforlife,

    Reading through posts try to uncover your steps, but a little hard to know what you've done so far.

    Can you log on with an FTP client from your hosts and delete the plugin directory and then try to log on to WP Dashboard? Gotta be the plugin upgrade causing problems.

    Also, might be good idea to log into your host (cpanel) and backup your home directory and database file before doing anything else.

    Thanks @benjamin for the quick response!

    I renamed the plugins directory, and I can login now without the error. Two steps forward!

    I only have the following tabs though:

    Dashboard
    Media
    Users

    What do you recommend that I try next?

    I moved some files over:

    $ mv jetpack ../plugins
    $ mv index.php ../plugins
    $ mv hello.php ../plugins

    Jetpack now appears as a menu item. I never used Jetpack, so I don't need it. Good to have it appearing though. Here is my current dir listing (the old dir):

    $ ls -al

    Breakthrough! At least I think so. I did the following:

    Re-installed WP 3.5.2 from the dashboard. No change.
    Restored database. No change.
    Ran the force-upgrade.php script (found on another posting). Now I see MOST of my menu items!

    Still don't see one for Widgets, and I can't add new plugins though.

    Ideas?

    Thanks,
    Larry

    More progress (I think). I can't seem to edit the PUBLIC pages. It only allows me to VIEW them. But I *can* edit the PRIVATE pages (I have several). Also, I created a new page (called "Testing123"), but it won't like me publish it. This is strange, since I am admin.

    I logged out of the dashboard, cleared cache/history, and logged back in, but no luck. Something seems to be wrong with my "admin" permissions.

    Thanks,
    Larry

    larryforlife, did you ever get your permissions back. I have been trying to get help with this for a while now and nothing is working. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/i-cant-access-my-dashboard-on-one-of-my-wordpress-sites?replies=32

    I can't maintain or keep my site going because of this issue. It seems this has been an issue for some time because I saw a post about it from 4 years ago.

    Any suggestions?
