User Role Editor
WordPress 3.5.2 Upgrade & User Role Plugin Issue (4 posts)

    I have upgraded my site from WP 5.5.1 to 3.5.2 yesterday. Since the upgrade the URE (User Role Editor) is creating some sort of conflicts or crashes.

    I have created a few roles for my end users (the Editorial Teams), and when they try to edit a existing 'Author Profile' they get the following error ...

    === Error Start ===

    === Error On Chrome ===
    Error Message

    The website encountered an error while retrieving http://www.majalla.com/eng/wp-admin/user-edit.php?user_id=7&wp_http_referer=%2Feng%2Fwp-admin%2Fusers.php%3Frole%3Dmajalla. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.
    Here are some suggestions:

    Reload this webpage later.

    HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.

    === Error ON IE ===

    Internal Server Error ...


    The website cannot display the page

    HTTP 500

    Most likely causes:
    •The website is under maintenance.
    •The website has a programming error.

    What you can try:

    Refresh the page.
    Go back to the previous page.

    More information
    This error (HTTP 500 Internal Server Error) means that the website you are visiting had a server problem which prevented the webpage from displaying. For more information about HTTP errors, see Help.

    === Error End ===

    Seems there is some problem or a conflicts with the new WP update with the User Role Editor.

    Note: When I login to the ADMIN account, I don't get this problem, and can edit the Author Profiles...

    Can You pls advice what the problem might be ...

    Thanking you,

    Best regards,

    Further Note to the Issue:

    1. This only Happned after I upgraded the plugin to 4.0.

    2. The Error takes place when I try to edit "Authors" profiles only at the moment.

    3. The error that comes when I acess the 'edit' feature for the 'Authors' is as follows:

    Fatal error: Cannot access private property Ure_Lib::$user_to_check in /wp-content/plugins/user-role-editor/includes/class-user-role-editor.php on line 141

    5. Solution: Revert back to a Old Plugin if you have them saved before you upgraded ...

    6. Hope the Author of the Plugin can find us a fix to the issue ...
