[resolved] missing roles in List for delete rolses (3 posts)

    Hi there.
    I have an odd problem with User Role Editor.
    I have added a few groups to use them with Peter's login redirect to make users of group A go to a certain page after login and users of group B go to a different page after login.

    This works fine so far. But then I had a problem with one group and wanted to delete it. When I went into the Admin of User Role Editor, in the dialog for "Delete Role" there was only one of my five roles in the dropdown. So I was not able to delete the role I had a problem with.

    I hope I could make clear what my problem is.
    I have added group A, group B, group C and group D and wanted to delete group C but in the "Delete role" - dropdown there was only group A ... so I can't delete.

    I just checked another install of wordpress with User Role Editor and it's the same there. No way of deleting roles.

    Any Ideas?

    Hi Ania,

    User Role Editor (URE) plugin doesn't show role in the list while at least 1 user with that role assigned exists. Reassign other role to those users and return to the URE page. You will see unused role in the list for deletion then.

    Hi Vladimir,
    thanks so much! Could've thought of that myself! Stupid! And makes sense, too! ;-)
    Thanks again!
