    A couple of days ago I found a random post that had been added to my blog through my websites wordpress dashboard. Now, it seems as if I am being restricted, and I no longer have access to any of the plug ins, and the php files. WHY?!?!?!?!

    Can you post your site URL so that we can have a look at your site?

    Check if your user role has changed.

    Where can I check the user roles? I am only allowed to place post on the blog, and the profile does not show this option

    So, I have finally come to the conclusion that I am missing the Appearance, Plugins, and Settings tabs on my editor. Moreover, the Tools and Users tabs are missing options.

    You may have to go into phpMyAdmin and check/edit your permissions. Someone may have gotten into your system. Simple google search for changing your roles in phpMyAdmin may get you on the right path

    Forgot to add. Please make a backup of everything before you even think about touching phpMyAdmin.

    I am only allowed to place post on the blog

    You got another author

    http://monarcamovers.com/author/petarjorge/

    You can delete him by running sql query

    delete from wp_usermeta where user_id='2'

    Bottleneck is right assuming you are ID 1 in the database. You will have to so some investigation. If you are the only user and have always been the only user for the blog you could run the SQL query

    delete from wp_usermeta where user_id NOT LIKE '1'

    (ASSUMING wp_ is your prefix of your tables)
    Use caution running SQL commands and again always back a backup before hand.
