[resolved] Disables "Settings" when installed in WP Multisite (5 posts)

    Not sure if I'm doing something wrong. But when I install this plugin into Multisite and enable it for the network, it then disables the "Settings" link in the wp-admin area. So I can't configure anything. Had to uninstall. :(

    Sorry to hear you're having trouble. What version of the plugin are you running? I believe this was a bug in 1.0.6 that was fixed in 1.0.7 soon after. If you update to the latest version I believe that should fix the issue. Settings should only be hidden from the Webmaster role not the full administrator (you)

    Hi -

    WP 3.8.1 Multisite Subdomain Network, WUR Version 1.1.1

    1)activating per site - Settings and Tools hidden in Admin Toolbar, when logged in as SuperAdmin ("administrator")

    2)"Disable capability to add/edit/delete users"
    logged in as 'admin' user (web user role 'admin') I can delete users, and it looks like can 'remove' administrator user; i didn't test that one...

    I thought this plugin would be great for setting up demo admins, and also to give my VA's access to tools, but removing users makes it a problem

    Thanks for your detailed description of the issues! They were indeed issues I was able to replicate in a multisite setup.

    We've fixed both issues and pushed an update to wordpress.org 1.2 which should appear in your dashboard updates soon.

    1) Network administrator is able to see Settings and Tools as expected now

    2) Admin/webmaster user can no longer remove users from Multisite installs

    Please let me know if you have any further issues
