Hi, an increasing number of my users want to edit their profiles via the backend wp admin panel in addition to the options you offer in the edit information section of the members area. At the moment if they want to edit their colour scheme etc a blank screen comes up saying “do you really want to do this” with no yes or no option. Then it says wordpress failure.
Also whenever I try to edit a users profile as the administrator, whatever the option I am editing, when i click update profile it flashes up “you can’t give users that role”/wordpress error and no changes can be made.
I have deactivated plugins including amr users and email users but still the issue remains
I was scanning through previous threads and found this written by chad
If you want your users to be able to edit via the backend (WP admin panel), you would need to make some slight changes. In order to make certain aspects of the plugin lighter (i.e. not loading necessary functions when they are not needed), the admin functions are not loaded unless the logged in user has a role that can edit users (which generally a subscriber cannot). This can be changed in the main plugin file wp-members.php by changing (or removing) the conditional statement that loads the admin file.
Where do I find the main plugin file, what is the conditional statement and how do I change (or remove it? (If we think this is the solution)
