User Meta Manager
[resolved] Removes user role when saving after edit (8 posts)

    When editing user meta on a user, which has a special role created with User Role Editor, User Meta Manager removes the users role completely.

    I can still find the user in the WP user section by searching for login name, but the user is not listed in the normal views because of the lack of a role.

    I had a similar problem and this is what I have figured out. When you click edit meta data notice what is written under wp_cabilities. What is written for admin (for me) is 'a:1:{s:13:' when in fact the proper meta value is 'a:1:{s:13:"administrator";s:1:"1";}' If you update any other meta data it changes this in your mysql wp_usermeta table which can result in a loss of permissions (and roles?). Anyways I noticed a lot of another possibly incomplete rows (managenav-menuscolumnshidden, metaboxhidden_nav-menus, closedpostboxes_profile_cct, metaboxhidden_profile_cct) This is a huge problem with an otherwise really cool plugin.

    To sum it up. Check out your wp_usermeta table in your mysql database.
