    So.. as of some months ago (it took them a while to tell me about it), none of my site’s members (all subscribers & a UM custom role) can edit their own profile. Any attempt just generates an error screen saying the action cannot be complete “for security reasons.” Admins can edit the profiles. I have deactivated all my other plugins, changed back to an unmodified theme, the problem persists.

    I suspect that this began with the security update in last summer. I also suspect that it is a permissions setting that I cannot seem to find. (I have checked to make sure that the fields are marked “user can edit this field.”)

    Where should I look? Any hints would be most welcome.

    Hello @theotherdon

    Are the users trying to edit their profile on wp-admin area or just on their UM profile page?

    On their profile page.

    so… here’s what I have discovered:

    All of the members that have become unable to edit their profile on their UM profile page had the WP role of “Subscriber,” as well as a UM role.

    If I change the WP role to “Contributor” or higher, they can edit their own profile. It doesn’t matter which UM role.

    This is a change in how the UM profile pages work. I am okay with making all of my members contributors—it’s a company-internal site with restricted access. This may not work for everybody.
