Support » Plugin: User Role Editor » Hidden from view and locked out

  • REVISED REVIEW: I solved the glitch mentioned below with a little help from the plugin developer. I was set to superadmin, and admin was the only role that could view the plugin tabs. I switched my role to admin, and I could use the plugin again. Great plugin. I just have to give it one tick down to 4 stars because elements of the UX of the plugin is confusing, but it does do the job. Thank you!

    OLD REVIEW: The plugin “disappeared” in the plugins area, but the files are still up on the server. And, now users with author permissions are locked out of their profile. This caused me some lost time and embarrassment digging myself out of trouble with my client.

    This is the additional security measure realized from very beginning.

    URE hides itself from the user with access to the ‘Plugins” page, but without ‘ure_manage_options’ capability. This is done to prevent its sudden deactivation. URE grants all its own ‘ure_%’ capabilities automatically on activation to the WordPress built-in ‘administrator’ role only.

    You problem was related probably to the fact that site does not have this WordPress built-in role…

    P.S. Why do not test new plugin at the site development copy before setup it to the live server of your client? Make database backup before this is the good practice to.
