    Hi Vladimir!

    I’ve updated to the newest version of the plugin today, and I’m no longer able to add an administrative level user.

    It seems to me we had this issue once before with an update…

    Can you help?

    Hi Bet!

    Give me more details. Do you not see ‘Administrator’ role to select at user profile or something else?

    Right. Trying to add a new admin user to the site, and not seeing cab administrator option at all. Other user roles are there, just not Administrator.

    URE by default protects users with ‘administrator’ role from other users with ‘edit_users’ capability: it hides such users and excludes ‘administrator’ role from the list of roles available for selection.

    Workaround:
    1) fully switch off this protection using custom filter: ure_supress_administrators_protection. Just return TRUE from it.

    or

    2) select user whom you allow to add/edit other administrators and grant him ‘ure_manage_options’ user capability – make him superadmin for URE (editing users roles) too.

    We never had any issues before adding Administrator users.

    I think there must’ve been some kind of corruption or errors setting – I wasn’t seeing “User Role Editor” under the users menu, and I was not allowed to access the URE settings (even though I’m the only Admin on this site), even after deactivating and reactivating. So I totally deleted the plugin and re-added, and everything is back to our usual normal.

    Thanks!
