HELP! my admin functions have gone away... (4 posts)

    Well, I've got my proper admin screens back (just re-downloaded 1.0.1 and copied over the wp-admin folder.)
    But, I still can't get link-categories to work right:
    I've set links_minadminlevel to 1
    and links_use_adminlevels to TRUE
    No dice. A user cannot get the ability to manage links until I set them to level 5, which gives them a bunch of stuff I don't want them to have.
    Anybody?

    Has anybody been successful in allowing users with a 1 or 2 admin level to create/edit links? If so, what was the trick?
    Anybody?
    Please?

    Two parts: having them able to do it, and having the menu item. If you set links_minadminlevel to 1, and then send a level 1 user directly to /wp-admin/link-manager.php do they get in, with the ability to add a link? That works fine for me.
    Then, to get the menu item, since it isn't looking at the options (yet, anyway), you're right that you have to edit menu.txt after saving a backup copy. Did you by any chance edit it in an editor that converts tabs to spaces, before? menu.php doesn't do much error trapping, and expects there to be a tab between the level and the filename, and the filename and the label, and if there was a space or spaces instead, it looks like bad things would probably happen. But without tabs-to-spaces, changing it to a 1 gave my test lowly luser a Links menu item.

    Ok, thanks...I didn't think it was converting tabs to spaces, but that's what must have happened. I re-edited in emacs, and all is working fine now.
    Thanks,
    Tony
