Ive been all over the forums and google looking for a fix to this issue. Been using wordpress for 6 years now and never had anything like this happen.
Site was working fine one day - the next I got an error that I was not authorized to view the dashboard when logging in as admin.
I uploaded the latest version of wordpress files ... logged in again and it said database update required.
Went through the update and was able to login - however - I have no access to the "users" section of the admin. I cannot access my "widgets" and my pages only show links to "view".
If I "add new" ... it only allows me to "submit for review".
Ive edited the wp_capabilities and the user meta data. Everything indicates that I "am" the admin - but the dashboard is not reflecting this properly.
Disabled all plugins - no luck
Added user role plugin to adjust (whatever the system thinks I am) to allow capabilities of admin - no luck
Ive imported a backup of my database - piece by piece and narrowed the issue down to something in the wp_options table.
Does anybody have any ideas that I havent thought of yet, or every had this issue and was able to resolve?
Thanks in advance. This is driving me nuts.
