[resolved] [Pluging: User Access Manager] Cannot Edit Profile (3 posts)

    I've searched all through this forum but cannot find an answer to this issue (if it exists, please let me know!). I've installed UAM, am running a Twenty Twelve child theme, and have four levels of membership access (public, subscriber, contributor, editor) plus admin role.

    All but the Administrator account receive this error upon logging in: "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." (Automatically redirects upon login to the wp-admin/profile.php in the URL.)

    I installed the Redirect After Login plugin to take all users but admins to the home page (my users are not tech-savvy, and would be confused at being taken immediately to the dashboard upon logging in, BUT I want them to still be able to utilize the "Edit My Profile" link at the top right of the page under their user name).

    Still no luck. Kept taking users to the wp-admin/profile.php page with an error message.

    I thought maybe the RAL plugin was conflicting with UAM, so I deactivated it. Nope. Still getting the error message. I deactivated UAM and login took users to the dashboard. I reactivated RAL (with UAM still deactivated) and it took them to the homepage, where the Edit My Profile link worked.

    Reactivated UAM and it is back to taking them to the dashboard but only showing an error message regardless of whether RAL is active or not.

    So it's definitely something in UAM, yes? How do I fix this? I'm very new to all this and inexperienced, so I'd appreciate any help I could get.

    Thank you!

    I figured out what was wrong. :(

    There's an issue with this plugin where in order to be able to change user access levels, you have to set their WP role to "No role for this site" otherwise it defaults to higher level access and it's grayed out.

    But when you set "No role for this site" it removes the user's ability to access the dashboard/profile area. And it also conflicts with the Redirect After Login plugin.

    I deactivated the UAM plugin and re-assigned WP roles to the users, which fixed the RAL not working, and also gave access to the dashboard/profile area.

    However, now I can't figure out how to restrict viewing access to pages on my site based upon role, since none of the plugins for this have worked. :(

    I'm very open to suggestions. Thank you!

    Nevermind. I found one that worked! I installed the Restrict Content plugin, and it not only restricts pager per user group, but it allows access to the the Edit Profile/Dashboard, and it also has an option for entering a message to non-registered users on a page that is restricted.
