Support » Plugin: Meteor Slides » No Longer See ‘Slides’ Menu Option in Dashboard

  • Hello,

    I just went in to add more slides to a slideshow on my site and I no longer see any Slides option in my menu bar, so I have no idea where to go to edit them. Did an update change the location of this? Not sure how to navigate there now, please advise.

    Hi John, the location of the slides menu item has not changed. What user role are you logging in as, are you using Members or any other role manager plugins?

    Hey Josh,

    I am logged in as an admin – we are using a permissions plugin for an events plugin (event espresso) so I went in and deactivated the plugin, logged in as an admin in chrome incognito and I still don’t see the plugin anywhere on the dashboard. Here is a screenshot of my dashboard panel:

    It is typically up somewhere near the media/pages/posts links right?

    Should I go in an deactivate plugins one by one and then login to a new browser and see if I can get it to show back up? Not sure if one of their updates could have caused it to disappear. Also, is there a direct URL I can navigate to that will get me into the settings section to make changes for the time being?

    That’s strange, that Slides menu should only be missing if the logged in user doesn’t have permissions to access the slides, either because they are too low a level, or the slides permissions have been edited.

    I could take a look at that if you want to send me a login for the site.

    I just added this to a fresh development site and can confirm the same issue. Running WP 4.6.1. I tried deactivating and reactivating. When I visit the settings page via the link on the plugins page, I get ‘Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page.’

    Logged in as admin.

    EDIT: Turns out it was the WordPress Members plugin, which I use on all of my sites. For some reason it doesn’t add the permissions for admin users after the plugin is installed, so I had to go in and manually add them.

    Alright, I can get to the settings page, but can confirm no Slides menu, whether Members is activated or not. I have all plugins deactivated.

    I checked the URL manually and it comes up fine, interestingly enough.

    Sorry for all the posts, turns out I had hidden the slides menu class in my theme. D’oh! All set now.
