Support » Plugin: Multiple Roles » “You can’t give users that role” When Update User

    Hello, I’m seeing an error “You can’t give users that role” when trying to edit any user while Multiple Roles in activated. The error appears when I click “Update User” even without having made any actual changes to the user. The error redirects me to /wp-admin/user-edit.php. When I deactivate the plugin I can edit the user successfully.

    I’m using Capability Manager Enhanced to create and delete roles which I’ve pasted below. I have also deactivated this plugin as a test with no success.

    • Administration
    • Administrator
    • Associate Professor
    • Editor
    • Faculty
    • Graduate Student
    • No Role
    • Others
    • Postdoctoral Scientist
    • Professor Emeritus
    • Research Assistant
    • Research Associate
    • Senior Leadership
    • Undergraduate Student
    • Visiting Scholars

    The user in question does have 2 roles; however, I tested trying to save just 1 role which also triggered the error.

    I’m happy to run any tests to help troubleshoot the issue. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I have the same error too. ;). Without any Capability Manager.
    Thank you for help in advance!

    Today when I tried to edit a user I not only got the aforementioned error message but also “Notice: Array to string conversion in /../../../wp-includes/formatting.php on line 1025”.

    Initially the user was not assigned any active roles but I do see
    Additional Capabilities
    Capabilities: subscriber

    What’s interesting is that I have deleted the Subscriber role. Without making any changes to the user I updated the user successfully. When I tried to assign an active role I received the error.

    Hope this help!

    Hello,

    Sorry for this bug that was introduced in 1.1.2 version. I have pushed a new released tagged 1.1.3 to fix this issue.

    Please tell me if you encounter bugs in user creation in a non multisite website too.

    Thanks @mista-flo this seems to be fixed!
