  • Resolved yash1229


    I have WP 3.5 installed on my website ( and I have been facing constant problems with this error- “You are not allowed to edit this post.” in spite of being the admin.
    My contributors are also facing the same problem.
    I have searched the forums and unfortunately, could not find a n00b-friendly answer. I’d be eternally grateful if someone could help me solve this issue asap & step-by-step. 🙂

  • Hello, I think this is down to 2 problems a

    1) security plugin try disabling the plugins and re-enable one by one to find which one is the problem.
    2) Also I would CHMOD folders/files 755/644 via FTP

    Add to your wp-config.php file

    define(‘FS_CHMOD_DIR’, (0755 & ~ umask()));
    define(‘FS_CHMOD_FILE’, (0644 & ~ umask()));
    define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’64M’);
    define(‘WP_ALLOW_REPAIR’, true);

    If this is still happening then try and see if there is an error_log on the server.

    You could also reinstall WP by downloading a fresh copy, deleting the wp-content folder and then FTP the remaining folders to your website.

    Thanks, phillbooth. 🙂
