Support » Plugin: Better Search Replace » Tools menu is missing

  • Although I am logged into wp-admin as an administrative user, the Tools menu is completely missing from the Dashboard. (I’ve never used it before.)

    The list of options goes from Users to Settings, with no Tools menu between the two.

    Running WP 4.9.8.

    How can I re-enable this menu, or is there a URL to directly run BSR?

    Amelia,

    Unfortunately, I never got an answer to fixing this.

    So we STILL have no tools menu.

    Hopefully someone reading this rejuvenated thread will help out.

    Same issue – just on one site though, some plugin conflict – We disable em all every time we need the tools menu ;(

    It looks like it’s the capability needed to create the menu which is stopping the menu from being created. Add this to your theme’s functions.php file and update as needed:

    function my_bsr_capability($cap) {
    
      return 'manage_network_plugins'; // update this capability as neccesary 
    
    }
    add_filter('bsr_capability', 'my_bsr_capability');
