User Role Editor
Roles Not Visible In "All Users"?! (2 posts)

    Hello there

    I've got your plugin installed on my site (don't know what I would do without it!). I have successfully used another plugin to import some users from a csv file and there was a column available to assign a role to each and every user which I did.

    Basically, all the 1200 users (literally 1/10th of the users going to be on my site) have been assigned a special role and some have been assigned various others. It is for a network of schools that requires staff and students to access my site.

    Basically, I can view the groups of users on the "all users" page, set out as below:

    All (1,214) | Administrator (1) | Staff_XXXXX (141) | Student_XXXXX (1,071)

    Only in the column that says "role" the fields for all users says "NONE". But then when I edit a user it says at the very bottom "Additional capabilities: Student_xxxx"

    What I want to know is: have my user roles been assigned correctly?

    I don't want to have the security of my site compromised by malicious users! Please let me know..

    View the screenshot of what I mean:

    Hello,
    It seems that users under Student_XXX have no role assigned.
    Try to assign all of them Student_XXX role via bulk action.
    WordPress is capable to assign capability to the users directly not through the role only. It could be your case after importing users operation.
    I just suppose it, direct investigation of site data is needed to be more exact.
