You do not have sufficient permissions to edit plugins for this blog.

  • I get this error when I try to access the plugins settings :You do not have sufficient permissions to edit plugins for this blog.
    I’m logged in as admin

  • Try opening search-and-replace.php and editing this line:

    if ( current_user_can('edit_plugins') ) {

    Change to:

    if ( current_user_can('delete_plugins') ) {

    This fixed the problem for me. The cause was that I had disabled the edit_plugins user capability on the site with another plugin.

    I am also getting this error message, but xiann’s solution did not work for me. Any ideas?

    Are you logged in as admin? If so you should have the correct permissions, but you may want to try something else instead of edit_plugins or delete_plugins. Maybe try this?

    if ( current_user_can('install_plugins') ) {

    Here’s the whole list of Capabilities: http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities

    No, that didn’t work. Thanks for trying, though. I am logged in as admin, so I don’t know what’s going on.

    This issue was posted 4 months ago.

    Any resolution?

    I’m having the same problem, on a few different WP Multisite installs.
