    Hi there,

    one of the subscriber to my directory is also an author of the blog.

    I changed their user role to “Author” and “Editor” to allow them to moderate comments.

    In both cases that doesn’t work. They are not able to see the admin bar and when they try to access WordPress dashboard they get redirected to the home page.

    What should I do?

    Thanks,

    Simone

    The setting to adjust is:

    WP Backend – GeoDirectory – Settings – General – Exclude roles from WP Backend

    The default value is “Subscriber” – if you are assigning new roles to users, you may also want to check that you have removed the subscriber role. Even if Editors are allowed, if Subscribers are excluded, and the user has the subscriber role, they will be excluded.
