    Deactivate the Absolute Privacy plugin.

    But I am using it to privatize my blog… My blog is accessible and functioning, but I cannot access the users panel via the email link.

    Try another privacy plugin. Obviously, the current version of Absolute Privacy is either broken or is conflicting with another plugin or your theme.

    Are you using v2.0.5? The link causing that error is a url from v 1.3.

    v2.0.5 should have the link formatted: get_bloginfo( ‘url’ ) . ‘/wp-admin/users.php?page=functions.php&u_id=’ . $user_id,

    Yes, I am.

    Was the message that sent that link sent before or after you upgraded? Can you access the Absolute Privacy settings page? Is yes, what is the setting for the message sent to the admin saying there is a pending approval?

    The email message was received a day ago. I clicked the link in the email today and received the error message. I updated the plug-in (today) and tried the link from the email again. Same error message.

    I can access the admin page of the blog just fine. Everything else seems to work, but the email doesn’t capture the ip address of the person registering, so I follow the email link back to the request on the blog to get the ip address.

    I am and have been using the default message settings.

    Any messages sent before you updated will have the incorrect link in them. The plugin was updated quite drastically for v2.0, so the URL of the moderation page changed (thus the error your getting). The new URL is

    Where xx is the user ID of the person you are moderating, which is 19 based on the link you posted in the first post. You can, alternatively, click on the ‘Moderate’ link under ‘Users’ (in the side panel of links in the admin area) for a list of all users awaiting moderation.

    Hope that helps.

    No problem.

    Any chance that in the future you might include the ip address of the person registering in the email?

    Yes, it makes sense to include the IP address. I’ll add it on my todo list. Thanks for the input.

    I had the same problem once I deleted the plugin I was using, everything went back to normal:)

    Hello, I don’t want to post another thread about a similar topic. I get this same “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page” message when I click on the “absolute privacy” tab in my admin.

    Can you post the URL of the options page (you can remove your domain name for privacy)? A previous user was getting this message because he renamed the plugin folder with something that contained a ‘space’ in it. Did you do something similiar?

    Not sure if this is the right url you ask for:

    No I haven’t changed anything with the folder :d

    Thanks for the help!
