[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] WPMS - allow/disable tracking (4 posts)

    We have WordPress SEO network activated on WPMS with "Who should have access to the WordPress SEO settings" set to the default site admins. Normal admin users are unable to enable/disable the PressTrens tracking popup, it only takes them to a page that states they don't have privileges to access.

    This is a major issue since normal admin users have no way of disabling/enabling the popup which overlaps the content editor. Ideally on WPMS it should be limited to the super admin to choose to allow/disable the Presstrends tracking.

    Just to add on to my previous post, users are also reporting the same issue with Google Analytics for WordPress plugin(also network activated on WPMS) - they have no way to get rid of the popup, when clicking on Allow tracking / Do not allow tracking they are taking to a page with the "You do not have sufficient permission to access this page" error.

    Per the requested format...

    WordPress version: 3.4.1
    WordPress SEO version:

    I did this: Clicked "Enable Tracking"/"Disable Tracking" as an admin in a multisite environment, where "Who should have access to the WordPress SEO settings" is set to "Super Admins Only"

    I expected the plugin to do this: The popup goes away

    Instead it did this: Brings me to, "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." and the popup persists.


    I'm experiencing the same issue as @athalas. Here is a proposed fix to admin/class-pointers.php: https://gist.github.com/3637203 (note lines 24 and 25)

    Here, if access is set to only superadmins, we're not enqueueing the popups. This resolves the issue.
