[resolved] Can't add/edit events from WordPress admin area (5 posts)

    I am having a problem with accessing events from within WordPress admin. Previously I could see options for adding events under the "Events" menu item. Now the only options I see are "Settings" and "Help".

    I am logged in as the super admin, and I have only used Event Manager from this account. I have also tried deactivating/reactivating the plugin, but it did not solve the problem.

    All the events still come through on the front-end, it's just from inside the WordPress admin they cannot be edited (or added).

    Any ideas what could cause this to happen? I am using the latest version of WordPress and the plugin (5.5.3.1). I only have a few other plugins installed: bbPress, BuddyPress, and WP Editor.

    Have you tried with all other plugins deactivated, in case there's a clash somewhere?

    It would also be worth re-installing the plugin files, especially if you've recently upgraded the plugin.

    Thanks for the response. I've now tried both of these, but even with all other plugins disabled and freshly replaced plugin files, I'm still only seeing the "Settings" and "Help" options under Events. I've also tried making all plugin files have 777 permissions, but no joy.

    I was originally seeing all the menus correctly. It was shortly after adjusting some plugin settings I noticed the options were all gone. I think the main options I changed related to changing the page template used for the Events page. Another change I made at the same time is to switch to a child theme (BuddyBoss is the BuddyPress template I'm using).

    Could either of these potentially cause the problem?

    As an update, I've tried changing the theme back without luck, so it seems to narrow it down to an Events settings change I made that must have caused the events options to disappear.

    To update, I've been through all the settings and fixed the issue by enabling "User Capabilities" manually for admin users, checking all the boxes which had somehow become unchecked. I hadn't unchecked these boxes myself, or made any changes to thsi section, so it looks like a bug must have triggered these settings to be lost on saving other setting changes.
