Giving admin role but still can't create pages or posts


I am struggling with trying to figure this out. I created a subdomain with its own membership. I set the role for a user to be administrator. I set the role for members at that level to administrator.

However, when I login as the member I can't create pages or posts. I am taken to the no access page.

What could I be missing? I think I looked everywhere for another role setting. I also tried other roles like editor.

I had the extended super admin roles plugin installed, but I deleted it.
