Support » Fixing WordPress » Admin Role Network No to Super Admin

  • Hello Friends,

    Using WP version 3.6.1.
    Fresh instal and beginning to develop.

    My question is: Is it possible to raise an Admin to Super Admin Role without setting up a Multisite?

    I have access to the Cpanel – PHP – My Admin.

    The reason I am asking is for our use I Multisite is going to be overkill as we are only creating one WP website. There are four Administrators. We really need to convert one to Super Admin.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  • there is no out of the box option for a super admin in a single wp install. but it’s possible a plugin has been made for something like that. maybe try this one, advanced access manager?

    Thank you very kindly Dohman, I will take a look at this!

    Thanks again!

    One thing to remember is that in a single-site (standard) install the ‘Administrator’ role has all permissions, so there’s nothing to move “up” to to make someone a super-admin – unless you’re going to remove permissions from the standard administrator role. If you’re going to do that you’d be better off creating a new role that’s below administrator and assigning the relevant users to that.

    Thanks Catacaustic.

    I guess I could do this in PHP My Admin.. from Cpanel?

    I wouldn’t suggest that. If it was me, I’d write the corect code to do that throgu hte WordPress functions that are available – but I’d also suggest looking at for more ideas on what’s available now.

    Thanks again Catacaustic.
    That link has a few good links on it including editing user Roles.

    You say I can do some of this through the functions.php as well? I will look into this too.

    Thanks again, very much appreciated!
