    On our site we are trying to create a intranet like forum for users in our company and one of the admins accidentally added all the admins to the regular members level of access. None of us can go in and delete the plugin or access anything admin related now. I have access to the back end and was told by deleting the plugin folder it would disable the plugin and allow you to get our normal functionality back. That didn't work so we were told to delete the php tables to reset it. That didn't work either. I still want to use "Membership" but we all need our admin privileges back first. What can we do?

    I just did this myself. <:-|

    You have to edit permissions at the database level.

    In your WP database, go into usermeta.

    Find the appropriate user, sorted by userid.

    In the same userid, find capabilities.

    Change the string in capabilities to:

    a:2:{s:15:"membershipadmin";s:1:"1";s:13:"administrator";s:1:"1";}

    Good luck!
