Cannot Edit or Delete Pages, Cannot Delete Posts (6 posts)

    The delete posts option and the edit/delete pages option are missing, and I can't for the life of me figure out why. Does anyone have a clue? I haven't modified any of the files as of yet.

    Dear cpradio,
    as a matter of fact I still waiting for some answer. I have exactly the same problem.
    I search the internet and nothing appears to be good.

    This problem caused by some how from the database.
    I just install the WordPress 2.2.1 with a new database and it works fine with all functions.
    I think there are some problem when we converting the database.

    Well, thanks for reporting this is a larger problem than just myself, it is at least good to know that much.

    I solved it. If you open phpMyAdmin or something similar query your wp_options table. My problem was due to changing the table name prefix. Run the following query:

    SELECT * FROM wp_options WHERE option_name LIKE '%user_roles%'

    REPLACE wp_ with your table prefix.

    If you have two of them, you need to determine which you want to delete. I did this by looking for a few keywords, ie: delete_pages, delete_others_pages, etc.

    If one of your rows has that, then keep that one and delete the others. If you have any doubts about doing this, contact me at forums [at] cpradio [dot] net

    Thank you for this fix!

    I was getting a little annoyed that as the Administrator I didn't have permission to delete posts.

    I had already replaced everything with the new table prefixes, but deleting that second DB Table entry did the trick.
