    Hi.
    I want to change the roles of some of my subscribers to authors or contributors. But i found a weird bug. Once i try to change the role of more than 1 user, the system automatically changes the roles previously changed to subscriber. For example, i change the role of student 6 from subscriber to auther, once i try to change the role of student 7, to auther, student 6 appears as subscriber again. The system only recognizes one author, and one contributor. Is this a bug? Can i have more than 1 author and contributor?
    Thank you for your help.

    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.

    I have tried de-activating all plug ins, didn't work!. is it possible to have more than 1 author or contributor? I will try finding another solution given that i have no access to the php file, and changing the theme would imply sooooooooooooo much work. However, i thank you for your support and will definitely try the last two options in the worst case scenario.

    Absolutely. You can have as many as you like. When did you last repair your database?
