[resolved] Editor role can't edit posts (5 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm setting up a user as an editor, and I cannot access posts from the editor role. When I switch the user to admin, I can edit posts and pages just fine. But only pages in editor. I'm running 3.4.1 with twentyten (highly customized). I've gone through this checklist, to no avail:

    Any ideas what may be causing this?

    Thanks,

    I'm running 3.4.1 with twentyten (highly customized).

    Don't edit the Twenty Ten theme. First create a child theme for your changes. Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Hi Esmi,

    Yes, I've tried these things, as mentioned. As for Twenty Ten - I created the site before child themes was the way to go. Unfortunately this meant editing the theme directly. Do you think this may be the cause of my woes?

    Thank you.

    It's possible, yes.

    Backed it all up, converted to a child theme, updated Twenty Ten - voila! Editor can edit posts and pages. Thanks for the tip.
