Theme options missing (25 posts)

    Hi all,
    I have WPMU 2.9.2 installed with the Mystique as default theme.
    I tried to upgrade it to WordPress 3.0 multi site, and everything went well, accept administrators can’t access mystique theme options page on their blogs any more. Link to the settings page: Dashbord >Appearance > Mystique Settings is missing unless you have super admin privileges. If I manually try to access the page through wp-admin/themes.php?page=theme-settings as regular administrator it reroutes me to wp-admin/?c=1

    I even try it on a fresh install of WordPress 3.0 multi site and there was a same behavior there. It looks like some kind of security issue, but I’ve been struggling with it for a few days, and went out of ideas where to look…

    Has anyone had similar issue, to point me in right direction?

    Cheers,
    Ivan

    I have this same problem and still can't seem to fix it. What am I missing?

  7. Hard to say. What did you try? What theme are you using?

    Mystique with 3.0.1. Turns out I can't do tow things that I know of. I can't export posts due to insufficient rights and I can't manage my widgets. I think it's been like this for a while, I'm not sure.

  9. Are you an administrator on the blog?

    Yes, I did rename the admin name but I am an admin. I even created a 2nd admin account and that account has the same problems.

  11. So, when you;re logged in as a Super Admin, do you see it?

    Super Admin is different than an administrator.

    I've read a bit on Super Admin but I have no idea how to login as a Super Admin or what the password would be.

    Super Admin is a role that can be given to any login; it's not a single dedicated account. By default, one account, with username "admin", is the only one with it.

    Here is my "fix" for the mystique theme to allow theme options for all:

    in the mystique theme files, edit theme-settings.php and in function mystique_add_menu() change 'edit_themes' to 'edit_theme_options'

    Another reference link http://wpdevel.wordpress.com/2010/04/16/i-notice-a-lot-of-themes-passing-the-e/

  15. In other words, this theme puts what you're looking for in a *different* file than functions.php and calls it from that.

    I've read a bit on Super Admin but I have no idea how to login as a Super Admin or what the password would be.

    If you're running a network of sites and you are the main admin user who can SEE the super admin menu... you're logged in as the Super Admin. If you were the admin of the main blog and created the menu, that's how you get it.

    you're in the section of the forums that deals specifically with multisite issues (the network feature).

    This didn't help unfortunately. It actually took my 'Mystique settings' menu away. Maybe there's multiple files I need to change? Maybe my db and server files are off due to a botched upgrade? I'm running out of ideas. If I could just export my content, I'd rebuild the blog from scratch!... I can't export either...

  17. @thomasconnery you still didn't say if you were logged in as Super Admin or not.

    My mistake on the multi-site forum section. Where should I post my problems to continue moving forward? I'm using the default admin account setup with WordPress except I have changed the name of the account.

  19. Under the Troubleshooting area, and you may also want to contact the theme developer.

    I am having this same problem. My theme options disappeared after upgrading to WP 3.0. I am using Flexibility 3 theme.

    I have tried changing edit_themes to edit_theme_option, edit_themes_options, edit_theme_options, edit_themes_options, and switch_themes.

    None of these have worked, any suggestions?

  22. Ask the theme author.

    The link fixed the issue. Some have stated in other places that they have trouble finding the 'edit_themes' string in their install.

    Use grep -rn "edit_theme" ./ to search your full theme directory.

    Hey Thomas did you ever find a solution? I am having the same issue. I tried what jlevandowski suggested, changed the code in the theme-settings.php and still I can not access any of the theme options. I don't think I have the option to have a super admin either. Any help would be great
