User Role Editor
[resolved] Missing Delete Role functionality (5 posts)

    Hi everybody,

    I am using URE 4.9 and it seemed fine, but after upgrading to wordpres 3.8 I had to reassign capabilities to users. Maybe it makes sense, you should always do a back up before upgrading.
    But I created a custom role and I want to delete it, but I am not able to see Delete Role button anymore (I have Add Role, Add/Delete capability)
    The problem is I have to delete that role, because I have done some logic with user roles and it mixes everything up.
    Deleting the role from usermeta table is almost impossible because the capabilities field is so overloaded for a single user.

    downgrading to User Role Editor version 4.8 did not help either.

    Has anyone solved it?

    While role is assigned at least to one user, you can not delete it with User Role Editor. Delete role button is shown in case if there are unused roles, roles which you may delete.
    Go to the users list, check if you have users with that role you wish to delete, and re-assign them the other role 1st.
