I've been working with WordPress for about two years now and run several custom-themed WordPress sites for myself, my bands, and my web clients. I consider myself a "power user" but have run into something I can't figure out.
Today, I logged into the dashboard of my personal website http://www.danreitz.com and found that I could not access the Theme Editor, nor could I add a new plugin to my site.
I checked to make sure that my account was still an administrator, and it is. Just to be sure, I checked the database, and my account's User Status is set to '0', meaning it should have full privileges. To troubleshoot further, I created a new administrator account, and when I log in with the new one, the "plugins" tab doesn't even show up. Both accounts are administrator accounts and both have their status set to '0' in the database.
Everything was working fine two days ago, and I made no changes since. After I noticed the problem, I upgraded to version 3.4.2, and nothing changed.
Do you know what's wrong? Thanks in advance. I appreciate your advice.
