Permissions being ignored?

Hi Andy,

Long time no speak. Finally getting some assistance with our site and it should now plod forwards. I am running up an odd issue. I have roles defined under Settings\Permissions, and I have created a new Wordpress user linked in the Church Admin Database. When the new user logs in she sees only "Sessions", "App" and "Settings". I have made her a Wordpress Administrator. She can do all the Admin things in the rest of the Wordpress Dashboard, but under Church Admin only those three tabs appear, even though under Settings\Set which module tabs are visible, has all boxes checked off.

Any thoughts?

Hi Gavin.
Go to Church Admin>Setting>Permissions and either set all the permissions to Administrator or check "Individual Permissions"
and perhaps reset them. I don't use individual permission so not tested since WP 5.0 but the normal permissions works.

If you are finding the plugin useful, please subscribe to the app - it's free for your congregation to use and only £9.99pm for a church subscription

Aha! Thank you. That's what I was missing. The individual permissions.
