With the plugin activated and logged in as Admin, I can not delete media?

Can you try after doing a restore on the Administrator role?
SyamMay 17, 2016 at 4:42 am #31118
You mean the WPFront’s export?
I am working with a localhost copy of the live site this plugin is being used on, and all the suspect behaviors are occurring with media management.
With this localhost copy, I just tried it and when I try to export the file, I click the button and nothing happens.
If I disable the plugin, media management works again. Of course I can’t test export for the plugin at that point 😛
Now I looked at my non working copy for Admin and the abilities I want to use are unchecked for these.
I then created a clean install and added WPFront and the abilities are checked. I also noticed that the ability to edit comments was unchecked. All the other admin abilities are intact. Oh! I also found the ability to add users is unchecked? Why should WPFront effect any of these abilities for an admin who is supposed to have all abilities?
I never touched these abilities in either case. Again, if I disable the plugin, the abilities are re-enabled.
This is not behavior I would expect from this plugin.
I would attach images but seems this is not possible here. It sure makes it hard to communicate what is happening. I would suggest you find a way to make that possible for support issues.
What would you recommend for a next step?

Ok. Update… again.
First, the export WAS being saved, but there was nothing to show the file was downloaded. ATM I was using Safari and it doesn’t allow you to prompts as to where you want to save the file. The WPFront doesn’t give you any message that the file was downloaded successfully. Maybe that should be added to the plugin?
Secondly, I did finally get what you meant by restore. Sorry I was being “thick” this morning. I performed the rector function for Admin and all the capabilities were reset. I don’t know though how they got in that state to begin with? Do you?
Thirdly, what do admins not have the ability – even after the rector, to edit comments??
Thanks for your time on this,

I’m glad that you got it resolved.
Usually browsers gives you a feedback when a file is downloaded. Also browsers lock the access to local files, because of security reasons. Even if I displayed a success message, user could still be confused since there was no feedback from the browser.
Those capabilities are created by WPFront and is only effective when the PRO plugin is active. For Administrator role, all those capabilities are supposed to be checked. Its probably because of a bug in the upgrade process from Free to Pro. I’ll add an item to by bug list with low priority, since there is a workaround.
I don’t know about the comments issue. This plugin doesn’t attach anything to the comments functionality yet. Its probably coming from a different plugin.
I do not allow anyone to upload anything for security reasons. My WordPress directory is read only to the server and I like to keep it that way. You can upload your images to a public image hosting sites like ‘imgur’ or to ‘dropbox/google drive’ and paste the link here or put in an ‘img’ tag.

You can’t alert when the process is complete like dozens of other plugins do? You statement confuses me.
I have paid for the PRO version with a valid key. I am confused. Are you saying the update may have not gone correctly? How would I correct this? Uninstall/reinstall?
“I’ll add an item to by bug list with low priority, since there is a workaround.” What workaround are you referring to?
“I don’t know about the comments issue. This plugin doesn’t attach anything to the comments functionality yet. Its probably coming from a different plugin.”
This is something I can test and get back to you on.

1. As far as I know, client scripts doesn’t get access to local file system for security reasons. Can you point me towards one of these plugins? Probably I can copy their code.
2. If you are going to try uninstall/reinstall, make sure you have ‘Delete Data’ enabled. Otherwise it has no effect.
3. Restoring the role. Unless it didn’t fix your issue.
4. Any update on this?

Here are some:
All In One Migration
As for the restore, without uninstall, but just your restore button, that seems to work. I’m just unclear as to what put the system into that state to need it.
Also, why Admins still don’t have ALL rights by default – even after the “restore” button action. Admins still ca not Edit comments according to the list within this plugin.
-JohnJune 5, 2016 at 12:11 pm #32500
Sorry for the late response. Which “list” are you referring to?
SyamJune 5, 2016 at 12:34 pm #32501
Yeah, been so long I forgot I wrote you.
The list of capabilities as presented by your plugin.
-JohnJune 5, 2016 at 12:54 pm #32502
If you are referring to ‘edit_comment’, it is a meta capability and doesn’t directly attach with the role object. If you can read the WordPress core documentation, you will get more information on this.
SyamJune 5, 2016 at 12:57 pm #32503
So what is it in your list of editable abilities?
I am confused then if what you are saying is correct. I am not doubting your answer, just why then it would even appear?
🙂June 8, 2016 at 2:49 pm #32668
Its in the list because its given in the documentation. But as you said, it probably can be listed as disabled. I’ll have to do more research on that.
SyamJune 20, 2016 at 8:31 am #33371
Is it still possible to “return” this plugin and be re-imbursed?
Please let me know,
