Cannot edit posts posted by others on my WordPress site (4 posts)

    Hello? I have a problem with wordpress where I can't access posts going back more than 10 pages in the post list. Also, this selection of posts that I am allowed to edit were all posted by me.

    My boss and I just changed our passwords, maybe that has something to do with it. He can't seem to edit certain posts either.

    I search for not-by-me posts and they show up, but in black text instead of blue. When you move the mouse near them, the only option is "View"- meaning, going to the front website, where the video is.
    No editing seems allowed.

    There are lots of posts by interns at my website other than me, and I have to be able to change aspects in them. I have searched and searched for a solution to this problem but I have not found one. Especially since it is hard to phrase to a search engine.

    I suspect it may have something to do with my boss's settings, but he doesn't understand the problem either.

    Thank you for any help, or leads for an answer.

    Apparently all people on my site, even the admin, can only edit their posts. But I can't have all our passwords, so I am still in need of help.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Thank you for the suggestions. When I'm at work next I'll tell my team.
