Support » Plugin: Controlled Admin Access » Can’t give Admin Access to existing User

    Hello,
    Thank you for this great plugin!
    It’s really very useful, but the problem I’m facing is that I have registered users on my website that I want to give them Admin Access, but your plugin doesn’t allow me because it says something like this: “this user already exist”.. It means that your plugin only allow to create new Users, but we cannot assign an exist user with “Admin Access”, right?

    Maybe there is something I’m missing..
    I hope that you have a solution for this, I’ll appreciate,
    Thank you!

    Hello @romonoutic
    Thanks or your kind words.
    Yeah, the plugin only applies the rules on users created by the plugin. We could add that but unfortunately, it will not be any time soon.

    Hello,
    Thank you for your answer,
    I understand that could be a feature in the future, but would you be so kind to tell me if there is any way to modify the email address of the user created through PhPMyAdmin database ? I can do that manually even if it’s a little complicated, because I really need this feature.

    I’ll appreciate your help,
    Thank you,

    Hello @romonoutic
    sure, you can find the email in the wp_users table in the user_email column.
