Support » Fixing WordPress » “You do not have sufficient permissions” error when trying to edit pages & posts

    After upgrading to 3.0, I now get an error code when I try to get into the area to edit pages and posts:

    You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    Someone suggested that I recreate the upgrade folder in wp-content. That has not worked.

    My site is http://www.inspiredbirthpro.com.

    The site works fine. I have access into all other areas on the dashboard. I can also create new posts and pages. I just can’t edit.

    Please dumb this down for me, as I’m not a programmer by any means! Thank you!

    I’ve been having the same identical problem and have been told to check a number of things but nothing seems to work. If you come across anything please let me know and I’ll do the same.

    I will copy and paste the main suggestions for you here, after I find the post.

    Thanks

    Here is what was suggested for this problem.

    First you can see if this is caused by a plugin by using your FTP client to rename your wp-content/plugins directory temporarily.

    Second you can look at your admin login to ensure it still has the admin capabilities –

    Access your database via phpMyAdmin (most hosting providers offer this in their control panel), go to the wp_users table and find the row for your user_login . Note the ID of this row. Now, go to the wp_usermeta table and find the wp_capabilities row for your user_id . Set the value of this row to a:1:{s:13:”administrator”;b:1;}
