Not allowed to access settings

Hi,
since a couple of days I’ve noticed that I can’t access Admin Columns Pro settings anymore. I get the WP notice:
Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page.

Already tried to disable all plugins, remove mu-plugins and revert back to default theme without success…

Hi,

Did you maybe install a role manager or other plugin that manages capabilities?
In order to manage the column settings, you’ll need to have the capability ‘manage_admin_columns’.
It does sound like that your user account does not have this specific capability anymore.
And since it happens for a couple of days, I would suspect that there was something on your environment that has triggered it.

Hi Stefan,

I added the capability you mentioned manually using User Role Editor and it works fine again.

The weird thing is that everything was working fine with User Role Editor for a while. I also tried to reset everything but it doesn’t work. :/

I’m glad it works again.
I have no idea how and why the capability was removed from your user, but I suspect it has something to do with the role editor. By default, we set our capability enabled for Admins as long as it is not overwritten by another capability plugin.
