Support » Installing WordPress » Links Manager Gone

  • Resolved lorigreenberg


    Where is the option to edit my links? I don’t know how long it’s been gone because I haven’t update in a long time but I just noticed I no longer have the option, along with anything else. Where is the option to work with my plug-ins? I also get the message that I don’t have sufficient permissions to change my theme when I try to enter from my dashboard page. I can’t find that option on my admin panel either.

    Can someone tell me where all of these things could have gone?

    I did a fresh install tonight and still, that didn’t bring it all back.

  • Does the user account you’re logged in with have the role of ‘Admin’?

    Yes, I believe so. How and where do I check that? All of my permissions are so that the one user I have (me) should have access, as far as I know.

    I”m not sure of the terminology, let me say again…

    When I log in to “site admin” from my blog page I only see:

    Dashboard, Write, Manage and Profile

    Under Manage I onle see: Posts, Comments, and Awaiting Moderation.

    I used to be able to access manage links, options, themes, things like that.

    I guess it’s my “sub panels” that are no longer available or visible.

    What you’re describing (as in what is available to access under the admin pages) certainly sounds like “Author” — at least in regards to the role assigned to the user login.

    All I can suggest for checking this is, with access to your actual database, look through the usermeta table and see what value appears for the “capabilities” meta_key on that specific user (match up on the user ID).

    I’ve found the usermta table and am looking around and it really doesn’t make sense to me. Do you know if there is a more specific description of how to do that? I don’t see any user IDs.

    Is there maybe another thread that spells it out? It’s way over my head.

    Thanks again.

    Ok, I”m a total )*(^*&*^ idiot. Please forget you ever saw my name associated with this stupidity!

    Um. I drove myself nuts logged in as my name, and not admin. Which was your first question.

    Thank you for your help. I will now be going to the site!

    Hey, no need to go off the deep end! ;)
