Support » Plugin: WP Admin No Show » I can't access my wp-admin at all

  • I have mistakenly blocked all of the users and set a redirect for wp-admin of my website. therefore there is no way for me access my backend even with administrative privileges.

    what i meant to do though, was to block back-end access/hide admin bar for subscribers only.

    is there any way i can reverse this?

    This is what i have tried so far:
    – deleted the plug in via FTP and re-installed the plug in. it seems as if the setting is saved somewhere, and the problem comes back as soon as i re-install the plug in.

    is there anyway way i get rid of the whole thing – i mean the saved setting – and re-install the plug in?
    how can i get rid of the effects?

    Thanks for your help

    It shouldn’t be possible to blacklist the administrator, at least with a default install. Are you using a role manager plugin?

    Deleting the plugin via FTP won’t run the uninstall script, so it won’t remote the settings from the database. You’ll need to delete the rows in wp_options table with this option names:

    wp_admin_no_show_redirect_type
    wp_admin_no_show_redirect_page
    wp_admin_no_show_blacklist_roles

    Obviously, since you’d be deleting records in your WordPress database, be sure to backup your database first. Or if you’d feel more comfortable, you can edit those values for those rows.

    Same thing just happened to me. Unfortunately I’m not much of a programmer so deleting lines in a database is not quite so easy for me. And my backing up is done through a plugin on my admin backend, which I can no longer see! Help?

    Deleting those table rows did not give access back after updating plugin.

    There is an uninstall hook in the plugin that will delete those rows, but obviously you need to be able to delete the plugin from the dashboard.

    If you want a clean slate, then rename the plugin, which should allow you to log back in and WordPress will deactivate the plugin for you. Do not rename the plugin back. Go to the plugins admin and then delete WP Admin No Show plugin. This will run the uninstall script, which will delete those rows from the database. You should then be able to reinstall the plugin fresh.
